Hi Tobias,
the build's looking good, apart from two omisions: the gun tube you used is of wrong profile, but I'm sure you're aware of that, also you've glued the turret lifting rings on the sides upside down.

Cheers,
Greg

I know, but the kit gun was not so good, so I used the T-28 gun from Dragon.
The Lifting rings is new to me, but I cant Chance it know.

Nice so far Tobias, don't be afraid to turn those lifting rings around, just carefully slice them off and flip them. You can touch up the paint after. I wish they would come out with a metal replacement barrel soon, sometimes it seems that they release aftermarket parts before the kit even comes out, and then sometimes it takes years, if at all.

I think no Company will bring a metal Barrel for that kit. But I had the Dragon T-28 kit and took the Barrel from it.

I don't know Tobias, there are two companies who released kits of this tank, we might see one.

Nice build of what appears to be a killer kit.
I like the paint job , and weathering.
So what is that big piece that goes across the middle of the Turret?
Maybe I should look it up hey? LOL

Nice job.
Putting it on a base?

It's a rangefinder. There are doors for the lenses on the front side at the ends.
