I see a new bookmark with Forum but I don't know how to deal with it and even more so how to transfer this topic.

Tom states they can't transfer topics across, so a new thread will be needed. You also need to sign up again, as the new Forum will not recognise you from here.



Thank you! I see. I won't do new thread with A13. Too much material and information.

Magnificent work Artyom & I completely missed your previous (September 30) update. I think if I had your talent, it would be very difficult to paint over it all! Keep going, keep safe and I hope you will transfer this project to the new website soon.

I just had to check "Pyrene" - it was a carbon tetrachloride foam which may have injured more users of the extinguisher than victims of fire. Heat from the fire could convert CTC into phosgene gas, the chemical weapon used by Germany and Britain in World War 1. Perhaps by placing the extinguisher on the front of the tank British engineers were having what in gambling parlance would be called an each-way bet



Hello Tim! Thank you. I am keep going but the temp is very low unfortunately.

Thank you for interesting information about extinguishers. It is really amazing. Many thing amused me in this tank and this is one of them of course.

Thank you! I am very pleased!

Past few days I was working with lights on fenders. I suppose my variant is better that the kit's one. Unfortunately they are too small so I need to fill the gaps which I may only see on photos. And I need to "switch them on" with cables and make some bracing on lights rear.

It certainly looks difficult but you are doing precise and excellent work as usual. You nearly have 30,000 views now, congratulations & keep going – I really want to see how you handle that turret


Hi Tim! Thank you! I need more time to work with hull. Many thing are waiting for assemble. Headlight,additional lights, holders,dozens of nuts,siren, mudguards and so on. Hopefully I have chosen early variant without additional armor on turret.

Keep at it Artyom. I know that desire to see a model finished as well, but you are doing such magnificent work it would be a pity to rush it finished (or not finish at all!).


Hi,Peter! Don't worry. It will e finished. Since Cromwell I have a rule that every started model has to finished. And no more parallel projects. So I hope soon I will be able to show more details.

Good news! Chassis has been fixed by chrome wire. I was little frightened but the result is good. Nobody guess that something was damaged.

I also has started to work with tiny details. I know that I could do better all that little thing. I think I am little tired of this endless project so I need to finish it faster.

Oh no, premature battle-damage! I suppose it could have been much worse…and proves the motto “Never Drink and Super-detail”. Beautiful metalworking in the preceding pictures. I can’t explain those technical decisions by the original engineers, if they’re decorative it’s a good example of British eccentricity

Sweet work Artyom.

I'm glad the Vodka bottle...err, water bottle... didn't damage too much.

Unfortunately I have damaged model by bottle of water. Fortunately all tiny details are safe and only chassis crashed.

Need to be careful.

Some technical decisions of British engineers puzzles me. Looks beautiful but why so complicated?

Excellent.... where did you source them?


They are from Aber Cromwell Mk.I PE. I have had two Aber PE for Mk.I and Mk.IV and used only one. Lucky!
