It will be a pity to cover all the hard work with paint Artyom. Simply stunning work.

Magnificent work Artyom, take some brave tablets before priming - I see you didn’t take Barking Digger’s advice (page 1) to paint the links before installation….? Is this going to be part of a diorama or stand-alone?

Hello,Tim! Many parts could been removed before painting. Links etc I hope everything will be ok.I have no place in a little flat for dioramas. That is very sad. And I can paint only in summer. Maybe I do something else until summer. I have some plans.

Hello! The final thing in assemble of this kit - grouser spuds from Friulmodel. I have bought them. They were expensive. I have understood that they were produced for original Fruilmodel Mk.IV tracks (for Emhar etc.). Of course I realised that it will be problems.
Tracks from Masterclub are too wide for spuds. I have cutted them off. Then I have made them wider with compound and added some bolts.

Pity the grousers did not fit but they do really add something more to the visual appeal Artyom. Looking great. On the final run now.

I agree with Peter those grousers look great despite the problem. If we must wait until next summer to see it painted what will you amaze us with in the meantime? счастливого рождества!

Meticulous construction & beautifully photographed Artyom – looks like it will start rolling at any moment. Maybe one or two crew figures would bring it alive even more? And I can’t believe the woodgrain on the ends of that un-ditching beam. Well done, it’s a real gem & you’ve selected a real beauty for your next project too
