    Great job on the turret rail system. I wish that you would have done a tutorial on how you made it. This is one of the hardest parts of the build to accomplish in paper. I can do it with styrene or metal but paper is super hard to do unless you soak the paper parts in super glue to give it strength. Great job and it is making me think about placing the APC on the fast track. Thanks for sharing.

    It looks like it is finished. It came out great, to include the weathering look. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice work, again, Skoda.

    I see you have one of the most important work aids on your workbench.
    I have a few of those too. (Well, similar anyway...:mrgreen:)
    Did it take only one keg to finish the model ???sign1

    Looking forward to seeing what you have next up your sleeve....:cool:

    Someone built the M577 about your scale and made it it into an RC model. What surprised me, was that he used a battery operated screwdriver as the motor and the batteries lasted longer than those expensive 7.5 volts. That is a consideration, if you plan to motorize it.:wave:
