Now to start putting it all together

Looks great…keep on going…looking forward to the final build.

Have part of the Torsion Bars installed.



(NOTE)
This is important , ALL THE HOLES IN THE TOP PARTS OF THE SPONSONS SHOULD BE FILLED AND SANDED SMOOTH . THEY ARE FOR THE PANTHER AMMO RACKS IN THE PANTHER KIT.
NONE ARE USED IN THIS KIT.

Next will be the ones with the swing arms

A great job can be seen in this model. The look looks really impressive so far!!!

Installed the rest of the bars with the swingarms attached.




Now for more of the interior parts

For installing the Transmission it would be easier to install the outside sections first, then trim off most of the pins then insert the center part.

I did an update on Pic #48 this should show you what I mean.
otherwise it’s very dificult to get the Transmission installed.

Looking really nice. wish I had the space to store something like that. Should be a beast once its done. Any ideas on the final finish yet ?

Love the work on the motor!! :+1: :+1:

No clue on what to do with it, just hope I survive it

Looks really good. A very impressive build so far :+1:

Some more done.


This is the last to be seen of this, really it’s a waste of time finishing the under parts that can’t be seen, that’s why I left off the lower fuel tanks and fuel lines.

The rear armor plate is a very tight fit, but it will go if you persuade it.

I test fitted the Upper Hull, had to do a little trimming on the front.

Installed the rest of the lower hull parts.



There’s a recessed area on both sides of the cross mount bar, you should remove the recess area on both sides to get it to fit .

Install extinguisher before decking then trim decking to fit.

Working on the ammo racks next.

This is a fantastic build Donald. The painting in each compartment and the parts are excellent :+1:
