Staghound MK I (Italeri)

Hi guys,
I'm new here and this is my first post, in spite of visiting the site for some time. It was a voyeuristic approach
It's a build log of a Staghound MK I made from the Italeri kit with a few add-ons

The barrel is from Armorscale, stowage kit from Blast models and headlight lenses from resicast
It's not totally complete and I'll post the final photos as soon as I do the .30MG and the towing cable (the only things still missing).
In the last photos the mirrors were not finished and a weld line was missing. The final photos will have that corrected











After the coat of Tamiya primer.






And just before the final touches




Hope you like it

Great Staghound!

Bravo! Fantastic to see your progression through your great pictures. One thing you might want to correct -- the lens on the roof mounted spotlight is wrong. It should be INSIDE the cylinder about 3mm, not at the front rim. The cylinder is actually a shroud that protected a spot lamp and projected the beam of light.

Thanks guys.
Ropi, believe it or not it was intentional. I put the ammo box in there but I thought that without it, it would give a more "lived in" look

Thanks to Roy Chow for pointing out the searchlight detail. I would never find that one before it was too late.
