Thank you! One thing I dislike is a clean looking tank. 

One Maybach HL230P45 engine nearly there, just a few more bits to add to it. Now the German's usually painted their motors a very dark black grey. But I thought this too stark for this scale, so I used Humbrol 67.

Thanks Darren (there's an echo in here). I've made more progress on the motor and also to the interior, so there will be more images tomorrow :)

Thanks Mish. Its mostly what's in the kit, with some detail added by me to make it mine if that makes sense?

Power take off for the turret. Still need to do the detail painting and then get it installed in the Tank.

These baths are for the engine cooling system, still more to do.

Thanks Mish and Darren (there's that echo again) lol 

So the Maybach engine is all but done. I have the air filter's to fit and then I can install the engine into the tank.
