Impressive! I really like colors and shades. And weathering too. 👍
I don’t know why, but this whole assembly is slightly hypnotizing. :)

Ciao, Filippo,

Welds are made using Tamiya Quick Type Epoxy Putty. 

My technique isn't quite as sophisticated, but pretty much the same, as this guy's tutorial

Hi, 

 

Despite all the hot and summery weather that we've had here last few weeks, I've got a little update to share.

 

The turret basket and the lower part of the turret is assembled and ready to paint.

I added PE latches to a few boxes and shaved the storage shelf edges thinner.

And also added some wires to an electrical box.

 

It's pretty crowded there so some of it is dry-fitted to allow it to be decently painted and weathered.

Thanks, Ed and Rob!

 

Turret basket and the lower part of the turret is now painted.

Nothing spectacular there, business as usual.

And it sits quite snugly in in the hull

You say nothing spectacular but that turret interior is amazing- is that real leather on those seats?😉

Well, if everyone already says that looks maybe not too bad... perhaps one could assume that they are right...

Maybe it really isn't that bad? Although I'm tormented by doubt... :rofl:
Okay, that is a joke. Everything looks more than perfect!

Just found this one (don't know how I've missed it before) @vaoinas.

This is stunning both in build and paint looking forward to the next instalment now

 

  Stay safe          Roger

Thanks, friends, you are too kind.

 

Little more to share about the mantlet and the main gun.

The aluminum barrel is ABER's and it's a beautiful thing. All the gray plastic you see, is basically straight out of the

box and one can see, the gun breech is very well detailed by Takom.

 

It all went together with no effort and can be disassembled for painting.
