Hello all
A little update from me

I need a bigger desk, I live in a apartment, there is not much room as you can see, but the first belt is now ready (90 parts) with split and bolt, will paint with TS-38 Gun Metal on sunday.

Just one question, how many part do you use to one belts ?

Hello John

The only problems was the turret rear, lots of file work, I'am still not happy with my work with plastic padding, I have forgotten to use hardener, and must start over again. :shock:

Hello all

At last - the Hull is now finished - done, only a few screws need to be put in pannier floor and sides. and the top fits just fine. Next is Hull Details.

Hello Allan . Dale from Australia . Click below for my build . I would recommend that once you are happy with the fit of your hull plates and deck , that you tighten her up for good and fill all bolt holes and do all the fake welds as below with car filler , then you can prime and if you like do the top coat of colour from the panniers down , so as once the suspension is done you don't have to keep pull it apart ..Dale.

Hello Dale
Thanks for the tips. I have put the hull away, I live in apartment and don't have much space, so it does not enter again before in the new year. The car filler not available here in Denmark, but trying to find something similar.
The hull right now, weighs over 33kg, so I can not move the hull around anymore.
Just geting started on road wheels. :D
