So here we go.

First tip, make sure you fit the turret floor/ring to the
rear, NOT on the locator tab. If you don't, the turret
WILL NOT sit level on the upper hull.

Here's what I mean.

Next up is the major assembly and some dry fit of
tools/stowage. At this point I also primed in Dunkelgleb.

Tracks and road wheels are the thereputic part, but also IMO
the most tedious. I do them first. He are the tracks primed
with Mr. Surfacer 1000. Gives paint something to bite to.

These tracks are quite well detailed and will work with styrene
cement, though I use stirps of evergreen and CA on mine.

Lastly is the major assembly done with a dry run of the camo
before weathering. For weathering first decals are applied and then a
Raw Umber wash followed by powders. In this case I was doing a muddy
vehicle so I also used wood filler for the mud.

But here she is still clean.

great work- pics a bit big though 700- 800 pixels wide is better- it all fits on the screen that way.
