Well, the back dating of the kit is now complete. I added the wire cage style brush guards to the commander’s and gunner’s periscopes, modified the sledge to reverse its positioning, and then added the hatch handles, rangefinder housing lifting eyes, and rear turret stowage bin.

All I need to do now is add the mantlet dust cover and armor foundry casting marks

Great work! Well done.

Need to get some paint on this, I really want to see what that cast texture looks like.
March as one, Don't look back
Odin's sons... Attack!
Unleash hell! Do not repent! Warfare grants us no lament
Let your weapons slash and tear This is no place for fear
Hold the lines! Move as one! In unity our victory's won
Our shields will form a mighty wall
United we shall never fall

Lyle and Stuart, thank you.

Clint, I just need to add the casting marks on a few places, then I can at least get a primer coat on. Soon...

It’s been a while since you posted any updates on this one. Any new progress, Carlos?

News: I hit a speed bump with the casting marks. I was planning to use some “shave off” items to do this. But during the first session, the shaving of the detail marks off of the sprue went bad. The first item, a foundry casting symbol, flew off into the far recesses of my work area, never to be seen again. After a fruitless search, I decided to order some Archer decals to do the same thing, with no prospect of losing the items as they are shaved off of a sprue. Those just arrived in the mail on Thursday evening, and since we have company for the weekend, it will be Monday before I get back on this.
