Masked and painted the Boarding Ramp components this week. …:paintbrush:

Hydraulics and ramp extension are dry-fit for the moment.

The tracks…

Pretty favorable impression of 30+ year old Model Kasten tracks, no visible punch marks on the track links to clean up when assembled! Links on turret will need two punch marks removed.

Separate guide teeth, not jazzed about those. However the pin :pushpin: set up is pretty sharp. As bonus there’s fender bolts & turret track holder.

Despite the fiddle factor, they are fun to build.

25 links, three hours…

Will square the guide teeth after the LC dries.

Cleaning remaining links…

Happy anniversary, I hope you enjoy rebuilding the Jagdpanzer this time as much as you did the first time.

The original build still looks very good.

Thanks Watto. I’m going to enjoy this build very much. Also adding 3D tool clamps, so I’ve got stuff that didn’t exist when I built the first one. Cheers!

With a late soldering session I finished the wiring for the ignition sparks of C.V. 33 engine:

Put the engine in its compartment:


Cramped!

Yes, the Dragon kit. OK overall but definition of details is on the decidedly soft side. Of the Abrams kits I have (Dragon, RFM, & new Academy) Academy wins in my view with the sharpest detail, haven’t seen Meng up close though.

My first Abrams build was the Meng TUSK I/II, lots of details; good kit.
