Just finished up Bronco's Cruiser Mk.I CS, kind of an ugly duckling but it held an appeal to me with the multiple turrets. I built it OOB, lots of good detail but absolutely no interior detail so no point building the hatches open. The only issue I really had was the link and length tracks were a bit fiddly. I painted it to represent a vehicle of the 1st Armoured Division near Calais, France in May 1940 using Tamiya paints mixed to get the Khaki Green and Dark Green camo. Weathering was with oils followed bu a dusting of pigments over the running gear. Cheers!

Very good job, excellent. A little seen kit.
I have it pending, but I would like to do it in African version.

Thank you! No real issues, fit was very good, just not a fan of the link and length tracks
