    O. K guys so I guess it is on to painting now. All of the main assemblies is done and I even toyed around with a possible layout yesterday morning but this will no doubt change during the course of the build. As always all comments and critique is welcomed. Regards: Shaun

    I built a couple of tristar models waaaay back when in 52 and as far as I can recall they were good kits. Your planned build looks like a good idea I think I will pull up a chair if you dont mind. Regards: Shaun

    No no no a good craftsman can make his own tools. Lol we frequently have to make tools when forging so I am very sure that is what is meant. A hammer and very hot fire is capable of doing a lot of things provided that it is in winter time naturally.... Regards: Shaun

    Thanks Stix I have a lot of vooks but tbh I am too lazy to look myself thing is I am really tired bloody heat and mosquitoes is driving me nuts!!! Well back to the build I have managed to lose a very small part so will now have to scratch it oooooh the joys. But on a more positive note I am about 15 minutes away from paint and all the figures is at least stuck together guess that is something right. Regards: Shaun.

    There we go suspension bits cleaned up and stuck together now going to stowage and yet to do the rear panel and front glacis. Could someone please tell me if I could build the academy kit as a G series? Reason for asking is that I have noticed that the roadwheels has the cast hub covers and the return rollers is rubber covered items. I am not sure wheter there was ever any J/h version with these items vision blocks was also mostly deleted on the H/J but is present on the academy kits sans the driver and radio operator vision blocks.....

    Good morning gentlemen and such. I have been building at the little panzer 4 since this morning at around 00:45 on account of us experiencing a huuuuuge nay epic heatwave and having a mosquito plague of biblical proportions I could not sleep. Up to now I have assembled most of the hull a part of the suspension and also part of the turret. My aim is that by tonight I must have the tank itself assembled and ready for paint. Up to where I am at the moment I have used tamiya extra thin quick drying cement and must say that I am up to now at least sold on the stuff. Pics to follow. Regards: Shaun
