Heres my take on what I am seeing in the unknown greebly reference images, has anyone else any ideas on he shape of this last greeb?
last missing greebly design.jpg

There are two pipes coming out from the rounded end of the part. one looks to have some kind of texture on its surface.
Also there may be a thin web between the two protrusions, ill see how it goes.

Im off to make one of these out of plasticard and place it on the model to see how it looks.

The Bandai 1/15th scale tanks are donors. This is from the Panzer IV. I would need to check on the actual dimensions.

Nice one Vectorzero, I think that's a close one, but not sharp enough on the edges me thinks. In the gap the inner edges seem to be parallel to each other on the reference as far as I can tell.
If it does indeed have a web in the gap, I think it will be some kind of connection from front to rear axle for brake pipes etc. I think the web will be the locator for the junction. A little like the one from the 8rad featured on page 3. Who knows !!

The greebly went together well and looks the part

Some other details came to light as I was doing the first pass of sketch washes.
The top area (where the Lunar lander normally is ) has some other details around it in the images from the chronicles books (which is the paint job I will follow) and I'm looking through the greebs I have here. Also the round detail is rotated in comparison to the other (more recent reference with the sketchy green paint job which I will not be following ), so a bit more to do yet.

Any ideas folks?
