As you can see I have only used the tracks, trimming down the bulky side pieces. I have added a prow which is also hinged as a ramp. The driver compartment has been added above the heads of the troop bay. A lot of detail is still to be added, and I hope to make between three and five of these.
Where the hatch usually sits I am planning to add a turret, similar, although taller than the one I use on my armoured car like THIS. Detailing will involve rivets, internal stowage and maybe a guard rail around the 'bridge area' I am also thinking about a walkway/platform at the rear. I'll play around and see what looks right.
As I said above, this may take a while before it comes to fruition (desperately trying to get my white scars off the ground), but when it does, expect a D-Day themed battle report!!
