    Hello to all
    After a little brake I'am starting a new model
    I decided to rest a little after FAMO and to do something for the soul :)
    The choice fell on a model of Halinski, the old one , but very beautiful IMHO.
    There is wethering and nice colors and the designer is pan Marian Sobel, so I believe this will be a joy build.

    There is only 6 pages and 2 with instructions.
    I will build it as is, only painting edges.
    The tracks will be assembled from laser cut design.
    I decided to do all the doors movable, despite that there is almost no interior.

    The numbering is simple and logical so i started from first part.
    The frame assembled with no problems, everything is fit well.
    The only thing I want to point to:
    the circle on which the turret will be placed - need additional 0.5 carton layer, so it will pop up a little from the top.

    And the shell glued on the frame.
    There was almost no problems with that, only little adjustments here and there.
    It's very surprising that the body almost done. I am regular that, in complicated models, I arrive to this point after a couple of months and not couple of days :D

    Thanks Janos

    The mudguards are ready
    Construction is satisfyingly good.
    The inside given as a big part of color on thin paper, so it was no difficult
    to band the edges
    You need to pay attention to the left side , where is located white gluing place to attach the bulge of a body.
    If the shell will be glued too near to the frame , white place will popup.

    Hello to everyone

    Asembled: basis for front driving wheel, armor plate with hatch and supportings for mudguards.

    The carton circle for the basis was given double, one with gluing lines for the body and one without. Both marked 12a. I've chosen one with gluing lines.
    Circle 12b must be glued on 1 mm carton. It's not marked.

    The hatch can be opened.
    The hinges are with interesting design, but very easy to build
    and they provide good closing of the hatch plate.
    The pillow 17a is to big, so it must be cut down to match the hatch opening.

    And here i decided to stop following standard numeration and move to assemble chaises.
    I just afraid that other parts that i will glue before i'll move to chaises, would brake apart
    So, first of all i started from tracks. As i stated before, i will assemble tracks from laser cut parts by Ortin.
    The parts cut out easily and i started to glue 2 halfs together.
    Between two pairs, i clean the slots for joining hinge and put it aside
    important thing is to center to parts together.
    Also i started to prepare pegs

    The assembling of the tracks slowly moving forward
    The difficulty was in centering two parts
    So found a solution:
    the pages from which i detached the parts have exact shapes of the tracks.
    I cut out two shapes of inner part and glued them together. That's it. The centering module is completed.
    I put inner part inside and then outer part on top. Let dry a glue for few seconds and take out centered assembled track.

    And all parts glued together

    to be continued...

    Hello guys
    I'am back in line
    The work caused me to take a brake for about a month
    If only we could all build card models and nothing else... :D

    Thank you Dragon

    I finished to round the edges of tracks with design knife.
    Also i assembled cogs, that took a lot of work and time
    I started to glue drive sprocket.
    Because the design is old, the cogs on the sprocket didn't match the holes on the tracks... so i was in need to rearrange them.
    And the assembling of tracks continue...

    Shalom to all
    The chassis is ready

    Some points that need attention:
    * Springs must be glued on some cardboard, to make right size when collected
    * You must pay attention on the angle of springs, when placing them in the wheel leg
    * Last spring has different angle, due to special position of spring stopper
    * Total length from body to the center of wheel must be 9 mm, according to instructions. I made the axes from toothpicks and visible length of the axes was 2 mm between body and leg and 1 mm between leg and wheel

    For placing legs in right angle, i made some stock to place the body on.
    According to drawings, leg must be placed in way, that wheel axes will be exactly under body line
    I glued all legs and chassis is finished

    Hi
    A little progress.
    Main wheels are ready.
    I added strip, to cover the perimeter of the wheel, for more aesthetic look.
    Also i was in need to solve the problem with hole in the center, being to
    big for the little disk. I glued white disks ( as you can see on second picture) that made a basis to glue the little disk on, and painted white places.
    After I finished all 10 wheels, I attached them to place.
    Everything is centered now and construction is strong

    Another update
    Rear wheel and supporting wheels are ready
    Again, here I added strip, to cover the perimeter of rear wheel
    All axis must be checked and trimmed at right size to achieve one line of positioning for all wheels
    The front driving wheel still isn't glued. I left it for later, when I'll put the tracks on.

    On last picture you can see the "device" I use for curving the details. It's a jelly wrist pillow from old mouse pad. Very effective :)
