Hey all. For what it's worth, here it is. The drum ends are connected with sprue and the drum half is used as a jig. A paper pattern was made to size the brass sheet. The brass was rolled tightly on a under sized dowel. The brass sheet was then glued to the styrene base. Archer weld beads were then added. (The last time I used streched sprue textured with 'hot' glue.) Scratch grab handles complete them.
It's not better than sliced bread but I like it. All coments welcome and thanks for looking, PK
Paul-- that is really neat! I am going to try that technique on my T-34/85
