Well, while looking for something else (a Warlord flight stand) I came across the Empress FT kit.

So here are the bits.


I also found the white metal bits of an Empress M113 and reunited the metal and resin parts of an Empress Zsu-23-2.

I think I now know where the white metal bits go on the hull.

Mad bob makes them withtracks that can be replaced with broken tracks to show imobilised.

I've got a trenchworx one but can't justify $27.50 on it now the £ has gone to crap

Now I have started on it, I am tempted by the Empress bargain bucket of FTs.

This time conical turrets, probably one Wehrmacht, one M1917 (swap exhausts over and change gun) and one as the Bovington example.

Developments can be followed via http://ultravanillasmurf.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/FT

As the current one uses  Rubicon's​ bucket and a "flimsy" ,when it is finished it will appear on my gallery thread.
