Never trust your mind... I simply guess that the cut of the armor plates of the kit was entirely correct, well, is not :|

Hola Alberto,

You've modified the roof's armour weld seam in earlier stage. The side seam and zimmerit are only a little bigger jobs. Well done amigo. :D
I haven't done any of them..... :oops:

Regards,
Lerh Chang

I LOVE the added touch of the war wound in the front armor.
