started this the other day. OOB building will! Try b&w technique

Progress. So far so good. Side applique armour needs to be adjusted so have taken it off.... Enjoying the build but the suspension has me a tad worried....

So far so good. No fit issues, instructions clear....

Tape was to hold the lower front while the glue dried

It's a Tasca/Asuka kit in an Eduard box.

Good work so far! One thing to note is that you should sand/scrape away that fine seam that is on the left turret wall that surrounds the pistol port. That's a Tasca manufacturing remnant -- not a seam line that existed on the real turret.

B&W pre-shading and then AK Interactive Light OD Base... for once i didnt go too overboard but i need to do something about my airbrushes.... not flowing properly even after full clean (mind the H&S does have a crack in the nozzle so needs replacing)
