Very nice work, seems a shame that the kit left all of that off.

Will keep watching.

Question off subject,how are the Hobby shops in Russia?

A place I would like to visit one day I hope.

Cheers



Hello! I am gald that this project is interesting. I try to do my best with model.

There are some decent shops, but they are in Moscow. In regions is very poor choise. Modellers usually buy models in China and aftermarket from Europe or China too by internet shops.

Some news about my progress. I have started to do exhaust. Holders were made from brass and copper. New hinges. Very interesting experience.

Hi Artyom,

Another great chapter in your superdetailing project, very nice work as always, your three identical copperplate 'things' on the roof look just excellent.

Looking forward to your next step!

Theo



Hi,Theo! Thank you! I hope all next atges will be interesting too. Good experience for me with copper. I can definetely say that Mark IV is not such simple as I have thought. And it will take much more time than I have expected.

Greetings to all! I have found that Takom gives wrong location of the towing device from the inner side. Than I've tried to make another chain with fixator. Now I am working with inner part of the hull side.

I'm not a rivet counter but you missed one... Just kidding.

Your attention to detail is just astounding.

Missed this the first time around. Amazingly detailed build, more like engineering than modelling.

Look forward to it.



Hello Gareth and thank you! I hope next stages will be also interesting for you.
And I have some new photos
I have replaced bolts and worked with track link tensioner.

Sorry, a rather late reply to your latest project.

Interesting project and great work on the front parts, good choice to go for flat rivets, and the result looks excellent!

I asume that the barrel is an Aber one?

Good luck with the next phase of your project



Hello,Theo! Glad to see you! Unfortunatelly last few weeks I have a lack of time for modelling. While I am working with Mark.IV I have stopped all works with A30. I need some rest from it and a new flesh vision of futyre works. Mark IV is interesting bolts/rivets project.
I have decided that Aber will be perfect variant of MG's. When I have any choise I always choose Aber. Very good quality!
