My first attempt at model building in the military field.

Hello, I now have the time and dared to try an Alvis Saracen, it's far from perfect but I'm a little proud.
I looked at Derek Matile Sally and learned a lot, then copied the measurements from with a teacher. The turret moves by servo and the lights work by microprocessor. Is not ready yet, waiting for the antennas.

    Welcome to this great community.
    Would be nice to see some more pictures of this project.

    • Thank you, this model was built and "rescaled" four or five times, originally I wanted to make it out of old beer cans, but soon found out that what African children can do with a piece of Aluminium and a pair of scissors is way over my head, so started again from scratch. Being an ex-squaddy I am now looking for some usable plans from a Humber Pig or an Alvis Stalwart.
