  1. Excellent progress Jeff, certainly this work will be my inspiration to assemble my T-34/85. Cheers
  2. Hello, my friend, The Takom kit has many good points, I dont have doubt about that. However, the biggest problem is the tower dimensions. At the first glance the turret looks impressive, but it is smaller than it should be, I think. Therefore I agree with Mr. Cookie Sewell and Mr. Terry Ashley that this kit is one of the best kit ever produced by Italeri, even by current standards. By the way, about the Italeri turret Mr. Cookie Sewell said “The turret is pretty well done, and captures the shape of the T42 turret.” And Mr. Terry Ashley “...the contours of the turret are captured very well with many separate parts in keeping with the rest of the kit.” Until today I never saw any criticism about the M47 turret from Italeri. So Francis, at the end, I'm disappointed with the new Takom kit. Cheers Many thanks Jeff.
  3. Superb build and finish John, great water effects. Cheers my friend
  4. Many thanks folks, you are very kind, but the work is very primitive and not attractive. I hope to change this look soon as possible, there are many things to do. Hi John, everybody knows that the M47 Patton, code 6447, is one of the best kit produced by Italeri and, summarizing, the Takom M47 turret has wrong dimensions, it is smaller than the Italeri kit. If you compare with Italeri M47 turret, side by side, you will see the big difference. Cheers
  5. More progress, folks... I fixed the rear plate and added two tow cables holders plus serial numbers on the phone box. I have also added the new taillights suports and two pairs of external bolts over the rear lights protections, I replaced the support for the external tools too. On the front hull I added two flat lifting eyes like the AZDAJA tank (spare parts from Takom M47G, code 2070 - By the way, these new kit have a catastrophic failure in the turret).
  6. WOW, great job on MG and cupola Dan.
  7. Great work Fillipo. By the way, I love the detail that you added too. Cheers
