Thank you all for the nice comments, I'm happy that you like my work!



Hi Jan,
Many years ago I built both the T-35 and IT-28 from ICM.
One of them, and I do not remember which one, had problems with how the track fitted over the sprocket wheel.
With one track link on each tooth there was a gap between the links. I "solved" this by reducing the diameter of the sprocket until the links would join to form a continous track.
There was some kind of edge/shelf inside of the teeth which I filed down and then I had to file down the teeth as well.

i wan using Fruil metal track I hope there will be no problem

Nice work bringing this early kit up to par.
Pushing the bar up, and glad after what you have to do, I am not trying one. LOL
Great job.

I agree with everyone Jan this land-battleship is looking superb thanks to your excellent detailing. It really deserves to star in a diorama with figures, to emphasise its size

Good start Jan, nice weld beads, I wish there were photos of the interior of the real thing, or at least the turrets. You would be able see quite a bit of the turret interior through those hatches.



unfortunately this kit has no interior. I completed the main turret there is a detail more.

Its hard find interior photo
