I did not use the decals provided with the model but hand-painted the markings.

Thank you. No crew for now. I have to find something that matches with the nationality (egyptian) and the period of time (Six days war).

If you have any idea, I am interested.

I have one of these too I occasionally bring out to bang on. Your kit is better molded than mine was, but I also only paid $3 for it. I then went & invested in a new gun barrel from Modelpoint (IIRC) & PE from Eduard to bring this kit up to par. It's a pretty aweful kit, but because I invested so much into it already I feel obligated to finish it someday. I see Trumpeter has one now, so I may just bin it and chalk it up to a lesson in model building...

About a month ago I finished the Hobbyboss one, much, much, much better than the old AER monster.

I try to do my best with this awful kit. But now that I started building it, I would like to finish it... and maybe throw it in the rubbish bin later...

Tracks do not fit, they are too narrow inside... Fortunately, I found old Tamiya Pz.Kpfw.II vinyl tracks. I hope I will be able to do something good with them although they are way too long.

Too bad about the tracks but thanks for the warning!
I will have to remember to reduce the width of the rubber on the road wheels to adjust them to the distace between the guide horns.

You have managed a quite respectable build of this kit
Congratulations!
