    It only took me about 2 MONTHS to finish this thing. What a challenge! Mislabeled parts. wall1 Ill fitting parts. wall1 Improper laminating labels. wall1 Confusing instructions. wall1 Really, really bad tracks. wall1

    The tracks were the last thing I did. What a disappointment. They were (and still are) too short, the road wheels are too wide and/or the sprocket is too narrow.

    Still I have found a fondness for this piece of armor while researching where every thing goes and how to orient the pieces.

    Looks really nice! It takes time and skill to turn an ill-fitting model into a masterpiece.

    Job well done!
