M1A2 SEP V3 Abrams

@HeavyArty guys sorry for my delay in answering, today I have made very little progress, I’m waiting for this week the guys from mig jimenez to answer me about the sprue XA and give me a solution, I’m looking now with a magnifying glass to go forward in the upper parts of the turret.

After his observations, he decided to paint the screen with clear purple, so as not to have everything red, and I like the result

Well, guys yesterday I made several elements of the turret, but until I get the parts (I hope this week they tell me something) I’ve been assembling the basket, a question with the basket I’m a little confused, it has to be aligned with the bars of the first basket or has to be slightly to one side? I pass you the photos

Thank you very much, yes they are correct in the photos obviously, and the instructions match, it doesn’t have to be in the center, I just assembled it and everything is fine

Well guys, today I got the ATOM paints and its thinner, we will see how they behave, definitely to the AK third generation I gave them the final goodbye, also two chiping products but rest assured that this v3 is safe from my chipping hehehe

I just tried the ATOM paints, they are not bad, but I have to get the hang of it, but my first impressions are that they are better than the AK third generation.

well guys, today I have made a pause in the assembly of the abrams, some friends have come from far away to visit me and it was not a good time for modeling, finally ammomig jimenez is going to send me the missing sprue XA, and yesterday I got this machine from the other side, I hope not to dirty my own thread, I just wanted to share it with you all.

well guys, today I have already painted the lower part with the ATOM carc tan, I must say that the paints are excellent, and today I have already received the missing sprue, and I can continue calmly the assembly of the turret, and on the drive wheel I have done some chipping (calmly do not panic) of the wear of the rolling.
