Some really good detail in this kit Carlos. Turret's looking good so far.

Ain’t got no wings. Where are the wings?

So more work on the turret this week. Firstly I puttied up the points where the cargo rails attach, since I won’t be using the kit parts. I also added some very thin rod styrene along the seam line where the turret halves go together to replicate the weld seam on the real turret. Today I sanded the putty smooth and using some “hotter” plastic cement and my finger nail to texture the weld seam bead.

Taking notes, Carlos for if I ever build another tank. I do have a Tamiya M48, which I guess is pretty similar to yours. I've heard it's a little short in stature, the Tamiya kit.
