FT Tank - Part 2

The plan is to paint this up as a British Army vehicle mobilised after Dunkirk (possibly for Operation Seal Lion games).

Note to self, do not drop models, they are heavy and the tracks come off when they hit the ground. I removed and replaced the tracks, drilling out the snapped off peg and drilling a corresponding hole in the track unit. Plastic rod replaced the pegs. The skid at the back was removed and repositioned. A plastic rod was added to the back to provide a fixing point.
Next, I added a post to the top of the jack and used it to position the bedroll.
Greenstuff was then used to hold the skid in position. Additional green stuff created some baggage, a tarpaulin and another bedroll. A Rubicon bucket and a British fuel can were added.
