It may cause problems with durability and sagging, but what about extending the cutout into the front compartment roof and glacis thus exposing more of the drivers/bow gunners station? There'd be sneaky, invisible ways to brace it up with a little thought.
This would expose more of the first class job you're doing on this
And now for a brief update on the Tacom King Tiger Porshe turret.
This post is all about color. Started painting using Mig Ammo paints. The names escape me for the moment but the pictures will tell the story.
First up was Stynlrez Metal Primer. Over that went the main color. It went down smooth.
Oops I forgot to show my added radio set. The pictures are not the best but they do show the headsets. All of the other pieces are the co-drivers side.
Now the second round of paint set the tri color scheme.
The last thing is the exhausts. First I used the Metal Stynlrez, after that dried I sprayed(psi was near 2 or 3) Model Master Metallic Burnt Iron. Shortly after that dried I stippled several pastel pigments to give it a bit of texture.
Now overall the paint job is not accurate. At least to the drawing in the instructions. I am ok with it and will proceed.
Next is to finish off the ammo racks for the hull and the turret. Then to glue it all together and install the tracks.
