Thanks Stuart, glad you like it buddy;)

Small update on the build, managed to get a little more done, not much, and still over 300 pieces to go:eek:, these kits are great, but there sure is a lot of plastic...slowly getting there, onwards and upwards:D

Come across a small problem with some warping on the track fenders :eek: but I'm sure this can be rectified by putting it in some warm water...hopefully:rolleyes:

For anyone thinking of getting on of these, do it, there is so much to keep you busy, as there is lots and lots of plastic, but be warned, you will get frustrated along the way, as some of the parts are very small and fiddly, failing that get the version that does not have the full interior;)

Thanks Stuart, it seems like it`s never ending, I didn't know you could cram so much plastic into one box :anguished:

After a few health issues I decided to get back to the su-85, I finished off the engine and fitted it into the lower hull along with the radiators and fuel tanks etc, next I moved onto the fighting compartment, most of this is done all bar some wiring details and the shells, along with the gun breech, shell storages, the roof, vision blocks, hatches, internal gear etc, there is so much plastic in the box it's never ending :surprised:
