Major crisis averted this morning! Got everything ready for final assembly of the KMT-4 mine roller only to discover one of the four rollers missing! No way it was going to go unnoticed and no way I was going to be able to scratch a new one! After turning the workshop upside down I finally found it in the bottom of the trash can under sprues from two other kits and other assorted detritus.

A small update... I didn't like the texturing of the turret ad lower hull and redid it even though most of it will be hidden.



Next step is to find information on the location of the anti-slip texturing.

Cheers,

Chris

Hi all,
I finished my Academy's kit.



Some pics from the other angles of view.



I can't insert in depth the Dragon's fat gunner into the Academy's compact turret.



Thanks for your watching.
Regards,
K.

Thank you Mark.

The kit (in 1997) supplies 2 options, plastic spared links and rubber tracks. I chose the first.

Dry-brush by using enamel Tamiya X-11 chrome silver.
