I don't suppose anyone is interested in seeing a 1/16th M5A1 Late Stuart being built ?
It has indi Track Photo Etch, Most of a turret interior.


Oh well I guess I'll just have to put it back on the shelf.

Hope you already started the kit. I will follow for sure. I like this 'character little tank'

Donald,

I am definitely interested in seeing a 1/16th M5A1 Late Stuart being built! I love Stuarts, esp. sloped armor types.

Never heard of this company. Looking forward to this.

Yes, I would. I am thinking about buying the kit and am interested in how it builds.

I am really interested because I have it and want to built as a tank of the Italian Army in the 50S.
Not yet started but I made the rubber T16 track pads with a 3D printer because IA tanks never had the all metal T36.
Bye

I started it last night, I'm working on the wheels.
There are small rivets that go on the wheel edge the ones in the kit don't look right, and I'm experimenting with alternates.
This is a really nice kit so-far (turret interior)

I would love to see more of your work. I have just ordered this kit and appreciate the way you approach your builds. Will follow along.

I have the Wheels finished, that is the rivets on the outside rims.
These are the rivets , they are located on the Sprue with the Wheels.

Here is how you want it to look.

Here's how I did it.
Trim off one at a time.

This is where they go, 6 to each wheel.

If you get them too long you can shorten them some.

A close up.


Finished for now.

They don't give you any help in making them a consistent size, do they?

As usual Donald, I'll be watching closely. I find your builds much more informative than a normal kit review, and I'm interested in this specific kit as well.

Now I.m starting the bogies, here are the parts you will need.

Note that L15 is longer than L16 it also goes inthe larger hole in L9

There are sink marks in L9 that need to be filled, they will show.

Dry assemble L13 & L14 insert two parts #P11 and glue where shown for now.

Now to continue.

Bottom View.

I drilled out the centers of the outside of the axles to be able to apply liquid glue to them.

Installed the wheels.

Installed the front part L13 and glued where needed.

Here's one way of doing it.

The parts P4 & P5 are usable either in or out, just be shure to have the long end to the L13 -L14 arms.

Before glue sets up all the way test fit to the hull to be shure everything lines up.

You could also do them individually . Remember P4 & P5 can be used in either position.
