Continued adding bits and pieces to the hull, not much to it. Everything fits really good so just a matter of cutting off pieces from the sprues, cleaning them up and glue them on.



Working on getting the fuel tanks seamless, the fit is good here too but I just smeared some styrene goo on them to be safe. One ready four to go



The kit comes with a small PE fret and an alternative piece for the transmission hatch. Got the PE one ready.

Got most of the parts together and found the only place with ejector pin marks in a visible place (except maybe under the mudguards) If you choose to display the commanders hatch open, on the inside:



Pulled out my old solder iron and went to town on two of the the mudguards and fuel barrels [biggrin]







Will work on the road wheels next

Thanks for looking!

Thanks guys!

I've never tried it before. First I tried doing it by dipping the parts in hot water, but that didn't work to my liking, and to go over open flame seemed a bit uncontrollable, so I tried holding a solder iron just 1mm over the plastic until it got soft, some of the dents are just gravity some got a little help with a push from the back side of a big brush.

Started to watch a movie but couldn't concentrate, got my mind all over T 34s  [biggrin] So I returned to the bench and sorted out the road wheels which meant that I could do the first almost complete assembly.



Also got out a figure and did a first fitting. (needed to cut and change the angle of his left arm)

.

The figure comes from MiniArts Soviet soldiers riders. This box and the other I got to my disposal for the dio are the following:




Thanks for looking!
