    Britons are in trouble

    I'm glad they got rid of the manually operated .50 on top The ladder stowage position isn't ideal if they're planning to fit the usual proper side armour Is that an EO sight on a stick I see, behind the RWS? The UGV in berlin camo is a nice touch

    Modeling a Warship

    Plans are typically given as a series of profiles (in x and y) that get faired into an entire hull, so I think lofting is the way to go
