Impressed by the Gimpy (GPMG). Not sure why the driver looks so grumpy - or was it his car?

G'day jeman,congrats on the Chally 2 mate and welcome to the CR2 club. ;D
   As an owner of same vehicle at the same scale,may I suggest you inspect the wheel alignment to ensure
that the tracks run true and are properly tensioned as they are usually shipped with the tracks slackened off to prevent over stressing the suspension during shipping.Also be wary that the springs may not be strong enough to support the vehicle when manoeuvring especially on high traction surfaces ie:- grass and bitumen,these surfaces have a tendency for the tracks to be thrown and retrieving the model can be
 fun at times.
  Mate pm me if you require any info as I'm still sorting out my track issues at the moment.
  Also expect a lot of attention 'cause she's going to draw a lot!. ;D

 Cheers and enjoy her.

Cheers guys !  She's coming on a treat for sure......I made some of the turret Armour for the sides and was thinking of doing the ones on the back of the turret, but as these are part of the UP ARMOUR I was wondering if I shoud as I cant really do the chassis fenders to complete the up armour look.................do you guys know if a Chally can have the turret armour but not the fenders ? Heres a couple of pics





I'm thinking I might keep it with the clean look rather than weathering but I'm unsure lol

Cheers

Man that is a F/King big tank as for the turret I'm not a Chally man by any means but believe if it looks good go for it in my opinion its your tank you get people whom may say that's not right but especially with WW2 stuff unless they were there operating that particular tank how do they know the history of it? I tend not to do specific tanks IE Whitman's for example for that reason, its your tank so whatever you like, as for weathering a very wise man once told me less is more, again your tank mate but she is looking good and will look forward to updates.

Hi Wobbly, I must say I really want to add the rear turret armour and like you say its how I want it to look. Now you've given me the drive to go for it :) like you say who knows what went where on any tank and although I do respect the perfectionists I'm going to go rouge and give it a go !  Ill keep you posted on the progress and fitting them.   

Cheers bud
