Superb work Artyom. A treat to watch this come together.


Unfortunately Bronco has simplified some moments with armor plates. It will be hard to fix. Now I seraching variants and should choose the optimal.

I take a very deep bow. As humble modeler I simply have to.
Great work you show us Artyom, great work!
The multi media is just cool and a trendy way of saying i use more than plastics to model. Just joking, I'm in absolute awe.

Hi,Robert! Thank you, I am pleased Unfortunately this is only a little part of work!

After much thought I decided to leave this aluminium cover. I think it is good enough. I can bend it :smiling5: And it is perfectly installed on deck. Photos for comparison. I was in a hurry so only phone photos.

Looks great to me Artyom. If battered was your intention, you what you were after.



Hi,Peter! I have to correct some thing on rear. I mentioned some mistakes only on photos.

Uf. That work makes me mad. When you go futher - things become harder. I don't think I can win this battle. Maybe a draw. I am trying to substitude some details and make this tank look like abandoned and crushed. Exhaust cover I made from thin aluminium to make some dents on it.



Much work ahead. Some lines I will correct in the end , they are not parallel.

It is sensational and when size matters, ok one has to replace such tiny bolts and that I think is outrageous attention to detail.
My hats off for you Artyom.

In awe and with kind regards,

Robert Jan



Hello,Robert! In true I am not satisfied. I think I can do better. But I work with only rear plate 3 weeks. So I think I can do only worse so decided to stop.

Nice work. I have this kit in the stash. What are problems you found with front hull plate? You replaced it completely with white styrene. Thanks.



Greetings,Brian!For now I only work with rear. With front hull I will work a little bit later.

Looks sensational Artyom!


However Your row of bolts between the tow points on the vertical panel appears to be too high. Your row would be just under where the red line is here in the pic:



The row should be slightly below the central line that would be between the middle and bottom bolt head on the tow point mounts

and their position seems to be nearly central between the row of bolts on the lower panel





Hi,Peter! Thank you for your attention! Spending much time with rear i missed this moment! I fix it. Thanks again!

It is the rear plate in the pic Brian. The first few pics show the front without any plates added, just the detail on the idler mount.
