And I want to add some photos with my latest achievements.
I have worked with kingston valves on rear pontoon. Dragon give us two variants of them, but both are incorrect. I have combined Dragon PE and some plastic.


Kingston valve with new welds. Later I will add locks in the middle of the kingston.


I have made new rudders etc. Rudders from the kit were to thick and has wrong central part. Now they have welds on both sides,but I don't have their photos with this modifications. I will post them later.




Kit variant.

For two months I was working with turret. To my mind this is the most difficult element in Ka-Mi. The turret is really small, so is it's parts and elements.
I have started with a welds.





Observations should be smaller.

I have made new shell bag.



Fence.



Exterior details.







Next time I will show some scratch interior parts.

Artyom, really very nice work, I'm enjoying watching the build!

One question: What is it you used for the cable? It almost looks like Kevlar thread and looks very good.

Hello Mark! Thank you for a pleasant words. At the fist time I've tried to use cable from Eureka, but it was too thick and the tension wasn't enough.
Here is a picture.

More experienced modellers suggested me to use braided cord from fishing. Something like that.

I have used 0,29mm. But you can find even 0,08! Fintastic cords!
