Thanks - I was expecting the wheels to be the trickiest part of this kit, but a few things have cropped up.
Given the gun and mantlet assembly is so big, the means of attaching it to the turret doesn’t seem very sturdy, it being these two little brackets that locate into two slots on the turret base, presumably so that the gun can elevate.
Simply cementing the mantlet to the turret risks completely sealing the mantlet / turret join, when it should at least look like it can move. Instead I’ve inserted a section of 2mm styrene sheet inside the turret for the end of the gun to fix into, using the slots to locate where the hole needs to go (the 12.5cm gun isn’t exactly centred in the turret).
Another slight issue is that the big hull top plate is so big that it slightly warps, I think all of the vent slots in it make it even less rigid than it would be otherwise. So around the turret ring I’ve added several lengths of sprue to brace it and try to make the ring more perfectly level.
A further issue is slight sink marks just at the lower edge of the side plates, where the mounting points are moulded on the other side. Not sure if they will show much once painted, but best fix them anyway.
