I will do a detailed explanation of the electronics when I get a few pics. Right now I have a rough set up, and I need to tidy up the wires and connections. Plus I need to sweep and vacuum out the inner hull as its full of bits of debris from construction. So it looks pretty messy, but I have the sound, smoke and motors all hooked up and running. I added a couple of small fans I bought for super cheap from eBay, to help cool the amplifier.

Now I have to adjust the final tension on the tracks and resecure the bolts in the drive sprockets which slipped. But in the meantime I have been adding weathering to the upper hull. The rear deck hasn't been touched yet so you can see the difference. I used the paint masks offered by FOA and they were done by the same guy I have bought from off eBay. His stencils are well worth the cost and come from the Czech Republic I think.

The kit doesn't supply you with a machine gun mount or gun so I found a MG on eBay and made the mount from a bic pen tube.

Here's a link to the first test drive before I tensioned the tracks again. It is just a short forward and back drive.

This is just a few photos to show the scale of the Beast next to an old home built (non FOA) Tiger. I'm just posting these shots for interest sake, and the JT still needs lots of detailing.
