These photos are mainly for the base ,, as soon as the weather clears here I'll get some more shots of the KT from the sides and ends .

Thanks ! , wrx
Ho ho - I have more time in that stupid base than in the KT .
It took me a while to get the color right . I think I need to do some more work with the grass -- add some finer blades and maybe shorten some of the smaller clumps . Maybe some more pigment application .
That's all aluminum wire BTW .

Absolutely awesome job! That's the Takom KT without interior, correct?

Thanks , man :)
Yeah - no interior ... LOL , it has no gun breech even .
I had to mount a " breech " , weighted plastic tube-stock , to counter-balance the aluminum barrel . ... and then add weight to the turret to keep it sitting properly .

I'm working on the one with the interior currently . Be doing a deep cutaway with it . Cutting through the wheels and radiators , ammo etc .

Hadn't thought about the weight of the barrel. Good fix. I've got the one with the Porsche turret in the stash. Opened the box, thought "OMG", put the top back on and put it in the stash. Maybe one day when I feel adventurous.

I added this plastic tube filled with tiny lead shot and Aves Apoxie Scuplt , but it wasn't enough so I added the nut .
Then I added that lead shot and epoxy to the aft portion of the turret then more up front to keep it sitting correctly .
LOL , the turret with gun now weights 141.55 grams ; just over 5 ounces .




What kit are you talking about that you're not ready to do yet ?
The Takom KT with interior ?
This one ? -- It's one I'm working on now ... I'll start a thread on it soon :
