soon be starting this beast, I've ordered glass for the Fletcher class Destroyer, the Tyrrell 6 wheel F1 Car, the 1/48th Tamiya Storch, and the German abandoned Locomotive. The T62 is still to be finished off with a base and weathering and the SU152 just needs a Berlin rubble diorama base.
So, delays aside, lets take a look in the box.
Two piece tracks, less hassle than individual links, and I'll be able to roughly weather them without the links constantly coming apart, they're mainly hidden behind the side armour.
as with the two Black label kits I've made to date, the MBT70 and the Saladin, the suspension is super complex, with a high parts count, if the other two are anything to go by, the suspension construction needs strict adherence to the instructions, or risk a FUBAR.
The gun is a seriously big bit of kit, as it's so prominent a part of the model I've invested in and aftermarket metal one, I did this on the MTB70 and there was no comparison wih the basic kit one, the metal barrels have the lands and grooves cast into the muzzle crown and just look the "Box Delux"
