    I finished to assemble separate tracks into one strip
    and in one evening finished to glue the teeth
    Now tracks will wait in box for painting job and I, with relieve, can continue the assembling :)

    The tracks got paint and lay drying aside
    In the meantime I assembled protecting skirting and elevation hooks
    The one on rightmost side - gluing place was inverted
    Also I glued front towing hooks

    Hello to all
    Exhaust pipe assembled and glued in place
    I did the tubes from wire with isolation, instead of paper ones
    Also assebled towing pin

    And finally! Tracks are ready, painted and installed
    They was painted twice. First time it was metallic steel, but
    the color was too bright and shiny. So i did step two and painted over with black matt, very diluted and old paint
    For my opinion the result is satisfying

    And last thing I did was main hatch doors and commander shield with periscope.
    When the turret was finished I glued it into turning basis on the hull...

    And the model is finished!

    Igor,
    This is a beautiful model that you have built. I liked it so much that I had to order one for myself. I just love the weathering and textures that are printed on this kit. This will be my next build. I only wish that there was an option in the kit for "band style" tracks...the individual links are killer.
    I still may order the laser cut tracks like you did.

    Magnificent! I am just picking this build up again after 3.5 years on the shelf. I am not at the same skill level as you and I dont use paint but I got lots of good tips out of here already! Question - I am at the mudgaurds and had no idea that one sheet was for the inside of them! did you glue it to the bottom BEFORE you cut and folded the parts or glue them to the inside after the parts were formed up. Seems to me you would get a better result doing it first but I am unsure how well folding would go in that case...
    Thanks!
    Chris
