Cheers chaps, this is a really enjoyable build so far, just different enough to restart my enthusiasm.
 
On with the show...
 
Assembling stage 10 looks like this.

The sudden unannounced appearence of the forward section of the running gear is due to the "woolly" fitting I refered to earlier. These two parts have the most positive positioning of all the running gear parts so I decided to fir them early on, as afirm foundation for the rest of the bits. The additions you see above look like the following two pictures below.


Construction during stages 11 and 12 becomes a bit merged here because of my dry-fitting. Here are the two stages as per the instructions and the next post will show my prefered sequence.

to be continued...

With the forward inner plates fitted, (parts12 and 37), the first easy step is to fit the idlers.

Like so...

The idlers, coupled with the profile of the hull, provides the correct spacing and fit for the forward outer armoured sides, (parts 1 and 3). part 3 on the right hand side is shown below. Then the rear outer armoured sides can be fitted (parts 2 and 4).

Here is the inner view.
 

Once this is dry the drive sprocket can be fitted and the rear inner panel added. You'll also notice the sudden arrival of the exhaust. The rear silencer box is glued direct ly to the hull and once set the front silencer box locates in three holes further up.
 
More soon.

Morning all and welcome along Hakan, the more the merrier.
 
Continuing with the sprocket and the inner panel...




Then once dry this is all repeated on the left hand side.

I am really pleased with the way this has gone together so far. Other than some fairly loose fitting this is a relatively straight forward build.
 
More later chaps

Pip! pip! and hussah!
 
Jolly decent of you to share these shenanigans with us. Just popped my head in before heading over the top to no-mans-land (work)
 
 
*Saunters off over the top with a merry tune on his lips* "Good byee good byeee wipe a tear baby tear from your eyeee"
 
I say! You there in the ranks, shoulders back chest out and keep a stiff upper lip. What What!

Last bit for this morning...
 
While the left hand side of the hull is drying, I stepped back to Stage 4 to finish the side turrets...

This has been the only real issue I have come up against. The fit of the bottom armour plate to the outer, ( stage 2 to 3) is not that good and the bottom plates required some judicious sanding to get them to fit correctly. Got there in the end though and here is the right-hand turret.

Although i am out at another careers fair tonight I hope to get the hull finished so I can tackle the tracks.
