Thank you friends !

The interior, I like to put a little " life " in my models so I put some personal stuff inside newspaper, water canteen ..... The vehicle represents maintenance so some of the package witch is usually outside is now put inside to get it " out of the way ", ration box, water canisters

Thank you friends !

A bit of progress, the upper hull and the mud guards are on their place but it wasn't simple, there was a section that I had to fill with plastic sheet between the hull and the mud guard, the open areas would make the gaps visible. Also the front section on the mud guard is completely missing in the kit so I had to scratch it with brass plate, but actually this is fine for me, on later stages I can simulate some damage on them....

I guess you widely use your precise soldering method there?

Actually not on this one, it was a simple work only two pieces per side so for that one connection between the two parts the cyano glue was enough. I made it simple as much as I could, the front and the inner side is one piece and the outside is the second, the one connection between the two parts is only about 2.5 mm but they are all connected to the kit's plastic with all length so it is stable I can make the damage later on without any worries

No problem my friend, glad to do it  :-ok My fault is I did miss to take photos of the scratch mud guards before installing them but I was so happy with the result that I put them on place immediately.....

The inside of the turret is poor but not much is visible anyway, so here are the parts going inside as well as the inside of the commander's hatch

Joining of the hull parts wasn't  a walk in the park, some putty work was needed, the lost rivets during the process are made from scratch  with an excellent tool from RP Toolz
