Some more small stuff.
The hooks for mounting the spare track links are installed & painted.


The Mg.42 for the rear deck

Careful the parts for the mount have the wrong numbers.

I'll be looking fore replacements for the cables, they are way too large and the copper color is hard to cover.


These cables have to go through the mounts on the hull sides, they won't fit. If I can't find replacements I'll just leave them off.
It might be a while until there's more.

I couldn't find any right size cables for the tow cables so I left them off.
I am finished here, so here are the final Pics.

Well that finishes this one. Now all I have to do is find a place to put it, hey maby in the flower garden.
This kit is really something else, Big with a lot of parts but it could have been so much better if Trumpeter hadn't cut corners.
This took me almost 3 months to finish, that's it for big ones for a while.
Regards.

Continuing on.

Note how nice and square the rear hull is.

The rear panel is suppose to fit inside the two side panels that were added.

Well that will be corrected later, now it's the Radiator assemblies

You have to be careful witch way you position the Raditor tops
as the mounting point on the bottom connector is two different distances from the edge. I couldn't get every thing else to fit any other way.




I'm building this kit as we speak. I've just got to the point where I will paint the lower hull. I glued in the side walls but have left the shock absorbers and brake assemblies dry-fitted so I can remove them for painting. After looking at the pics from Arild I might as well glue the shocks in. I was going to follow the instructions and paint the silver part also - thanks Arild. I appreciate this post as I can see what errors you discovered before I get to that point. Keep up the good work!

Your welcome. I just got back on line myself.
I've been off since I moved and i'm finally getting to build again.
The pic's seem to fade after a while, I'll have to try posting a link after each build to see if they will stay.
Regards.
Donald
