Hi Phil, not heard anything about a sequel to Prometheus yet, but was a nice job to work on so will try and get on it.
Yep the T25 armoured jeep has been all over the uk, Normandy and Bathune in the last year since I sold it to my mate who owned double deuce , the willys should be finished by end of summer with luck. Will try to keep this updated :)
Cheers
