Greeting! I would like to show you my latest project. This is Mark IV #2009 from Takom. I am fond of building British armor, especially cruiser tanks. So this Mark is something new for me. Dozens of bolts and rivets. I build this kit with help of great master - Andrey Fonin. He is building another Mark.IV, but his variant is a destroyed tank.
I ahve a little progress so far with front hull. Hatches are movable and now they have correct thickness. Chain are handmade. Pistol ports covers movable. I have replaced all bolts on sides. Takom's variant of the bolts look like rivets.

Hello, Pete! Thank you for the warm welcome! I will try to avoid mistakes. And unfortunately I do a lot of extra work that not could be done.

Greetings! I have found that Takom gives wrong location of the towing device from the inner side. Don't trust Takom
Than I've tried to make another chain with fixator. Now I am working with inner part of the hull side.
Progress is very low. Only idler tensioners.

hello Neo,
Great to see your build has made it across, it would have been a shame to miss the build.
Cheers, MikeC.
