Good soldering there Rick....btw, won't that lump of solder in the engine bay be seen? Just my dumb question for the day....

Or maybe the firewall hides that?

Interesting way to build a model, looks more like the real deal...

That lovely bit of soldering was one of the very first soldering I attempted when I did my project (first soldering ever for that matter). I had already decided to not show the engine...so yes, this is what would be behind the firewall between the engine. Hard to see even with the bonnet open, but a rough early soldering attempt none-the-less.

You see, I followed the instruction sequence which has you begin with the crew cab and front end assembly - our friend Moon Pup thought better and began with the fighting compartment (where the assembly is more straight forward). Either way, however, you must deal with the crew cab which is a tricky bit of bending/soldering.

Ok MP, back to the show.

Rick

I have to say the Firewall/floorboard/Sidewalls have been the most difficult part of the build so far. I keep looking at the Machine Gun Mount and wondering how the world I"m going to get that bend. I'll slap a picture up this evening of where we're at but I think i'll lay low for a couple of days, think the reason I couldn't get the cab frame right is because I was banging at it to hard for to long.

Here's tonight's pictures. Quick dry fit.
Will construct the hood next to see how bad out of alignment everything is. OH NO HINGES AGAIN!!!

Engine looks spectacular. Any close-ups?

Check back on page 1, any closer and the bad stuff shows up! If any of the colors are incorrect please let me know. I make no claim of being an armor expert and will need lots of help when the painting starts.

You are doing an incredible job with all that brass Puppy. Although one has to admit that those alignment issues are the scariest part of it.
