I want to finish the construction by this weekend. It's quite fun to build without worrying whether the parts are accurate/correct. Brings back good memories of times when there were no AM stuff and everyone built OOTB.

Can't wait to see a detailed build post from you.*
I'm modifying on the suspension...to be workable

This kit has gotten my attention all of a sudden. Looks like Tamiya and Skybow have a little competition in the quarter scale market.

Nice work so far Marco. You are really plowing through this one!

Cheers guys! I am really enjoying this build. I am like a machine churning out the completed sub assemblies without worrying about super detailing.

I have finished all the interior and painted the base coat tonight. Sorry no photos as I couldn't wait to paint it. The ivory paint goes on tomorrow and painting the details.

The upper and lower hulls fit great. There's a liitle flange with locating holes that mate with the upper hull fenders.





I think I might have some fit problems getting the two turret halves to fit. The solution would be to shave down the turret ring bit by bit until the halves meet. So far this is the only fit problem I encountered.
