I'm getting into russian tanks in a big way, I'm going to work through a few, starting with this one. I like all the boxy armour stuff. Some sprue shots. Some PE Yep, those tracks again. At least the bag is more robust than the Chieftain's was. Took a while to work out that this is actually Sprue M, not a second sprue E. I like the subtle waves they molded into these plates Glorious turret and rubbery bit. correction to instructions, a bit weird. I made a start, the underside is nocely detailed, the wheel legs are complcated little things, with many small parts. I spent so long down here looking for A7 that it qualified as a valid part of the process worthy of a photo. No luck. The part just vanishes, no sound to idea how far it bounces... Wow! I lost this small handle for another model about 6 weeks ago! More wow, Takom somehow knew I would lose this part and included two spares! In fact, there are two spare drive sprockets on the sprue too? Takom included a pair of polycaps with the kit, but don't refer to them anywhere on the instructions? They look like they fit inside the front idler wheel but the peg the wheel fits onto is very short. Takom are crazy. With the wheel legs done (it is wheel legs right?) onto the hull top, which is split into three, presumably for versions. Just checking ahead to see what the instructions say about the tracks. These are the same 'instructions' as the chieftain, in other words, 'Here's a bag of links that don't clip together, good luck, brave modeler'. Cheers!
