Hi Everybody!

Thanks to some extra holiday I was able to give an end to both TDs Hulls...
Seems to me they are completed and if you see/check something missing..please let me know!

Now it s time to go further with turrets...M10 turret does have gun in work and M36B1 turret (AFV Club Turret) has counterweight lenght in correction...

Love them both! On the M36B1, are those scratchbuilt spare track holders or are they from someone's set? I need two as well and don't want to do any scratchbuilding of photoetch.

Your work is outstanding Fabio and i'v been following each of your posts. I didn't know there was an issue with the M36 counter weight so i look forward to seeing how you tackle that problem. I can't see anything that you might have missed. As soon as you finish these Tasca will come out with the whole M36, M10, family so hurry up and get them done. There probably using your work as the research.
Regard's, Dave.

Two masterpieces. Looking forward to seeing them done.

Very clean! It's very inpspiring to see such a well-executed build.
Which brand of PE periscope guards did you use on the M36B1? They sure look the part!
Best reagards,
Christian

Unfortunately no, no master here...
Those pieces are dog to reproduce in resin without disassembling too much...

HI Mark
All photoetches are from my scrapbox and are for sure ABER (apart front light guards which were already used some moons ago... )

CIAO!

Hi Dave

Thanks for comments and yes AFV M36 turret is not that bad in terms of dimension but if you look at counterwieght and compare with actual, you will notice that it is set too much inwards (aka inside the turret) this can be spotted as end of ammo bins will be too far inside turret. I was very tempted not to modify it for the sake of time saving but at the end the "rivet counter in me" won...
I remedied by cutting the counterwieght (very easy thanks to the -too much- soft plastic) and spacing by 2,5mm pieces of plasticard.

I am waiting for that glue is setting and will post a photo with the "raw" surgery so that you may see how is done..
Thanks!

ciao
Fabio
