Oh, yeah; it's a pain when the fit isn't very precise.  Still--you did a good job getting it sorted.

What clear flat are you going to use?

Nicely  done, Nick.  The figures complement the tank very well, and the Tiger is itself outstanding.

More outstanding work, Nick.  

So, I take it that brake fluid is safe to use on plastics?

Thanks.  I've used paint remover to re-do/un-do metal (like figures), but it's good to know paint can be removed from plastic, too.

Does brake fluid take off enamel paint?

Nice job on the rider.  Having this interaction between the two figures gives a lively component between the two vehicles.  

Looking forward to the final photos.  And the way "time flies," '45 will be here before we know it.
