T'anks y'all! It's finished now, but packed up to go to San Antonio tomorrow. I'll get some "finished" pics after. Stowage came out good, nothing fancy.

Lousy pic, but the 6C is coming along nicely. I want to bring it to ModelFiesta this weekend, so I'm jamming.....

Weathering is VERY restrained, stowage will be limited as well.

Thanks Mike. I was very careful to not overdo this one, all the pics I have show relatively c"clean" tanks, jsut a bit dusty.

So I was thinking about the tow cables, and I'll be dipped if I didn't make them for an M48, too short. Gotta go digging through the spares boxes.....

Again, good looking tank , Russ! The M60A1 was my tank, I have a real soft spot for them.

Gee whiz Wally, it's been a long time since I posted on this thread, but Aleph is almost done. Yes, the upper right basket rail is bent, I'm afraid if I try and fix it, it'll break, again. Next time I'll use brass wire for those parts for sure. So just a few details and parts and this one will be finished, and I can finish Gimel too.

Pics as it sits now:

Mike, keep up the build thread, looks good so far.

I'm leaving tomorrow, got a week in Barcelona, but will be hungry when I get back, should have some progress of my own soon after.

I've added a stowage box to the back of the turret, bisecting the bustle rack. That made assembling the bustle rack all that much more challenging. 

I think I might begin a build thread soon lol. Thanks for letting me hyjack your thread for a minute there, Russ.

I'm very much looking forward to the next step you've got to show us.

I like where you're going already Mike.

I just snagged an old Academy Merk3 kit, and I can safely say that it won't be built as a Merk3....     Cool

Mike: BLOG! Please? And figs are a very strong possibility, especially for Aleph. Part of my morivation for building the tank in the pic is the pose (?) of the TC in the pic.

G: T'anks! IDF colors are really interesting to me, especially when I hear someone say "that's not right".

BK: Thank you, and thanks!
