Looks allright to me. I see just one gap in front. Third pic, between the lines. But painted should be fine I guess.

PE makes a difference. Could you tell if that extra stuff in the baskets were included in the kit?

Must be a big big fun washing it:smiling3: Many holes, nuts, gaps. Love it:smiling3:

Hi friend!

Not, the extra stuff in the baskets were not included in the kit. Is from a complements of modern vehicles (Tamiya).

Arrrfff.... I don't see the mistake!!! The worst part of the build it was the torret! The PE give me many problems, because the size was different from the plastic parts.

I don't understand, the first PE were amazing and perfects... Maybe my mistake this time...?

Thanks for the comment!

The gap isn't big. Just slightly bigger on the left side. Just between the ropes.

I have noticed, that the smaller PE part is, the more fun:smiling3:

That was the smallest I have ever made:

Four bends. I had to do 8 of them:smiling3:

But if it comes to PE parts, the most challenging ones were balls and chaines in Merkava.. Each one made from four parts. Chain, ball and two small wires:

You said this one?

It's not mine, is the kit, is not perfect...believe me!! If you search in the photos will see little parts of putty in some places.

I look this and prefer to left like this, because the putty can solve the different of "levels" between the armours.

Yeah, that one.

I know that is because of the kit. But what I meant is that this is the only one thing that looks like Trumpeter kit;) Everything else is like one of the best kits ever.

Amazing, how a coat of paint can make a difference. Look fantastic before paint, looks even more so now.

Hi all!

The white coat is done! I know looks like......grey color, but the light don't helps and will change!

In fact I don't want to do like a new vehicle (out of factory) ;)

The next step is the varnish coat. I will be about 2 days without doing nothing, will leave it dry "good", because I want to do weathering, lights and shadows with oils, enamels and white spirit, I need it very dry!!

Thanks as always

Polux
