Right chaps a small update of progress made today i added a few small details to the turret then a bit of filling and sanding then the same process on the barrel before attaching to the turret then i made a start on the upper hull stowage and fuel containers were sanded and fixed to the upper hull along with the frontal armour blocks then to wrap up todays fun the lower hull halves were glued and road wheels sanded i wont have a update on this until next week as im leaving for my holiday tomorrow as always your comments and suggestions are welcome
Hey Dan, shes lookin fantastic buddy! Great job with the extra turret armor....looks killer. Do you have after market stuff for the engine screens and the like? I gotta use the kit stuff....Zvezda coulda done a bit better in that area.
MAC thanks buddy hope it stays that way til the end
Wout i wanted the Meng 90 but had issues with a evilbay seller so i cancelled it and bought the zveda kit instead when i see a meng version at a show it will be on the shopping list and regards to the paint i cant wait for the challenge love that scheme i found another piccy of a side rear view the roadwheels are gloss black so this will be a awesome look the pics suggest it was a parade vehicle scheme only but i cant have a clean tank so i will be dirtying this 1 up for sure like your M1 buddy
IMATANKER yes i know my friend it is a busy looking turret but with all the technology it has i suppose it should look like it does :/
Dicky i will be ordering from armour models just recently the 90 grills have been out of stock so will be getting when they are in what AM aerials would go with this 1 buddy?
Luigi roll on the masking and spraying buddy
JOE thanks fella i dont like glue marks on models along with seam lines so i use Testors ultra thin glue applied with a brush and lots of sanding
Evening chaps i managed to grab some bench time tonight and had a go at the road wheels the halves were glued and sanded then the axles got installed as the glue was drying the road wheels were i attached to align the axles aftera quick fuel break the tracks were built they are held by tape so far after paint they will be glued this build will be slowing for a bit as im still waiting for the PE grilles to be back in stock hers the progress pics
