Rubicon M5A1 Stuart VI work in progress - block paint check

Here is a photograph of the Rubicon M5A1 with initial block painting and the start of decal application prior to finishing the painting and weathering.

The photograph shows any imperfections.
The 'crease' in the glacis where the plate was extended (due to a build error on my part) can be seen, and the grousers on the turret need tidying. There is also a registration issue on the unit serial number. There is also a gap in the turret where the two parts of the turret do not quite meet (just above the gun).

Some of the chipping around the driver's hatch is a bit excessive.
