Little touches like the replacement barrel makes all the difference, adds much interest which some find hard to achieve,

Nice improvement for the track tensioning bolts! :D
I hate when they just fall into the hull and you have to disassemble to reach them.
Gotta try that!

I agree the track tension bracket idea is excellent. I like it better than a machined solution.

Excellent details all around - you've added a lot of extra parts! $$$$ :shock:

Great build - good to see progress!

Hopefully i can start soon back on my build.

Hello,

Thanks Dennis, its a lot of work to make the hatch work properly,
i test the hatch by hand moving the servo arm but is see that if i wanne open it the hatch tilts to the right,
so maybe i have to use a spring so that the hatch remains parallel with the back of the turret.

Best regards Yves
