John, many thanks... part G2 on your sheet looks similar to part 64 on mine..a bit hard for me to tell from the image. I agree, looks like the limber was part of the transporting.....hmmmm decisions decisions now

So after a number of months and Making some effort to find some time,(little at best) I’ve been able to get some bench time and have been updating the KV 1 tank and doing some scratchery to add some detail and interest. Cutting out the old front of the turret and making adjustments for the aftermarket barrel was the biggest challenge.

Hi Joe, I thought I'd sneak in while the rabble were hibernating on your couch for the last couple of months. Good to see you're progressing at the bench. Free time is a luxury nowadays. You've just got Simon's and my attention with the scratchy stuff. :thumb2:
I'll grab a soda pop, some warm clothing and blend in with the rest... Russian winters can be bitter.

Cheers,
Richard

Just a few more pics.... I didn’t really like the plastic kit cargo bed on the Gaz ... so I decided to scratch build the bed out of balsa wood. Also first coat of paint on the KV, limber and tracks. The Gaz is going to take a little bit more time to add some aftermarket kit work, but I will post pictures as I make updates. Thanks again for all of the responses and following along.

I have scratched a few beds & always found representing the hardware on German beds tough as they like drop sides as well as tailgates. Thankfully not always. PaulE

The wooden bed is so much better. I try and incorporate a bit of wood in all my builds as it is a nice contrast against the metal. Keep up the great work mate.
