« on: Tue Mar, 07, 2017, 11:35:AM »
next up building it more or less out of the box apart from the rb gun barrels instead of the kit supplied ones
box art

instruction booklet and reference guide

gun barrels

lots of wheels

and it begins


rear of the tank


the main hull




a few gaps


lots of wheels
small parts

gaps filled



And had anyone got some advice on working with ds tracks?

Haven't used those tracks so no help to you there - great progress though.

Prime them with a flexible primer like Vallejo, and then paint and weather as per normal.

Tracks in the Dragon M-103A1 are the same DS style. Easy to work with.

   I really like the lines of this thing   .

   So the 2 cm retracts down into the turret  ?

yes  it can be built in both the up or down position
in the down position the 2cm sticks out a hole in the front the hatch
primer time


tracks still need the backs primed

lots of wheels
