Nice job! Any tips or concern regarding assembly you can pass on?

Nicely done! Just love these interwar era multi-turret tanks. Going to have to look into this one some more.

Hello and thanks!

The fitting is good, but there is need for Milliputy in some places. I got a space between the machinegun turrets and the fenders that needed filling. The interior is ok, so it is possible to leave the hatches open and see that there is something there. Be careful when removing the springs from the spruces and trimming them. I used the tracks supplied in the kit and they are well detailed, but they also easily splits apart when trying to stretch them a bit to get the right tension on them. Fruilmodels have tracks available. The PE for the exhaust is a bit tricky. I glued the “legs” in place and then the exhaust. I also replaced the two wooden blocks on the back with the real thing.
