Thanks Chris. Glad you dig the turret . Nah no paint tonight dude, too late for that. This coming week should see a close to the build part. Will have to take a trip to the garage and chop a piece of wood for this project.

Hiya JT and Guy, thanks for the words guys. She's getting there. Have started the torsion bars, or what's left of them. Will be taking lots of pics of the painting which hopefully will start in a few days.

After spending nearly 4 hours working on the torsion bars, they are finally done. I knew they would take a while to scratch build seeing as how I needed 11 of them. I also made two extras that I will keep as masters to cast in resin. This way I won't have to scratch another dozen of them.
Although there aren't many parts to a bar, it does take time to make so many identical pieces. I also added 7 recessed bolts to the plate that is attached to the side wall. You can barely make them out in the pics.
Here are a bunch of pics of what's been done.
Now that these are done, I can finish up all the misc parts to the model.
