We remake the sliding cover for sight, to correct the posición of the hole for the sight and we make it in two pieces to allow open the gunner’s hatch... sorry I don’ know why the pictures do not show in the correct sequence
Hola Alberto,

LOve your adding details on the commander's hatch, and the correct arched two pieces of sliding cover with right position of the hole.

BTW, is the 88mm gun tube a new customer-made one? Looks a bit longer but is correct than the stock one.

Best regards, :D

Hello !

Thank you very much RCSparks and Chang !, the barrel is the one of the kit, just is not in the final position yet :wink:

Well this are the final details of the roof and the mantlet corrected, rectified and texured no the edges...

Hola Alberto,
Only found now from your photo, that there is no down rib on the mantlet.

I only add a chain locked between two pistol port plungers, so any one of them can be opened without losing.
Not accurate in reality, but functional.

Very realistic battle damage Alberto, that's an addition that some builders can get terribly wrong but yours look great! 8)
