For the last four hours it seems I've only been working on the modifications to the TC's Machine Gun. I added a couple of other bit to the turret as well, but The MG was just begging for some extra love lol.





I added spade grips to the 12.7mm MG as it added a little more eye candy to it, but with the hatch up there would be no way to access the controls lol. Well, it looks better IMO.

That's all for tonight. Thanks for giving it a peek.  [smile]

Looking awesome. Btw, MG do not need access from hatch, because this is anti-air MG, remotely controlled from inside.

Thanks, guys! [biggrin]

Gadjung, I know what the MG is meant for, but without radar direction it would be nearly impossible to shoot down anything in the sky larger than a kite lol. I just wanted to add more visual interest. I know it is remotely controlled from within the tank.  [smile]

How else am I supposed to get any kind of notice with all of you supremely talented model artists, Paul? lol

Doc, you impress just as much, if not more with every build.

Its 1/72nd scale, Steven! [biggrin]  Aside from the sink marks on a lot of the armored pieces, this is a superb kit in this scale.

_________________________________

Alrighty, so going forward with my detailing of the TC's cupola I built the ammo box tray, a belt of (probably oversized) bullets, and some spent brass to the brass catching bag on the left side of the MG. It should all paint up decently. The ammo belt was a PITA to make, but at least I did manage to get it looking mostly like what is meant to replicate. That wasn't easy.





The decision to build the ammo box tray was made because the ammo box itself had a sink mark in it that would've been difficult to repair. Since 99% of modellers out there in the world would add that part anyways this led me to show it in a different way. Not many fellas out there would choose to leave the ammo box off of the tank, and that I believe makes this a little more interesting to look at.

Just to give a hint about the size, my son's 1/72 T-34/76 and my 1/35 T-34/85 side by side. It's small!

Yep. That's right. The T-90K is a little bigger than that T-72/76. Wider and a little longer, but about the same height. A nice comfortable scale after working with 1/144th lol.
