stages 6 & 7Here we come to the assembly of the hull superstructure. Everything drops into place and the only disappointing feature is the fit of the hatches. Driver and co-drivers’ hatches both needed sanding to obtain a good fit, and the vision port for the driver was slightly too small. It’s during the building of the superstructure that you will have to decide whether the construction of the side vents on the hull will be that much improved by using the photo-etched set supplied.
. I have to admit I decided against using them. I have no doubt that when built they would look beautiful, but in this scale my skills were just up to the task! I did however, use one of the covers for the ammo boxes inside the open compartment, leaving the other open to show off the supplied ammo.
