    Maybe I've to switch to spanish: Es increible y muy lindo.

    I'm going to visit this thread very, very often.:thumb:

    Thank you, muchas gracias. :) Driveshaft, fuel tank, exhaust pipes and other small stuff. Now work on the cabin starts.

    Completed the door. I'll still have to correct the deformation of the roof in the drawings, because something went wrong there.

    Just a suggestion... It may be a good idea to break the strips on the roof into separate parts, because when the gap between them is so thin I sometimes find it difficult to cut accurately...

    This is really turning out well. Have you thought of sending it to Halinski to see if they'd publish it? The detail would be right up their alley. I'm really impressed.

    Lex, don't you think that would make it a bit easier to cut the parts, but the cabin would be even uglier with more edges and it would be harder to glue everything together accurately? I cut these with scissors with no big problems.

    redhorse, I have something going in that area, but let's not count the chickens.. :)

    Fixed the roof by cutting the ugly part off, looks a lot better now I think. Second door with glass also installed, as well as the front grating. I can't get it to open nicely from bottom position to the top contrary to the doors - their hinges work perfectly. Any suggestions?

    This has been an outstanding thread to watch as it takes shape, you really do have a great talent for this kind of stuff, I can't wait to see what you do with the tracks... this just keeps looking better and better, well done!

    This is such an amazing project, really outstanding skills in design, construction and photography. The various working hinges in the last few shots have caused my jaw to slip from its hinge. :)

    May I make a request? Could we see a photo of the model next to an ordinary object to show scale? The photography is so good that it's hard for me to get an idea of the actual size of the model.

    Good luck with the tracks! Hope you have access to high quality espresso. :)

    Yes, unfortunately. :) Here you go Art Decko, next to a ruler. I tried to make a photo next to my Jagdtiger, but that beast didn't fit into my blue background. :D Anyway, the length of this RSO is a bit over 17 cm.

    Thanks for the scale shot! The Steyr is actually smaller than I anticipated!

    It's half the size I'd been thinking of!
