With internal armor plates painted and in place I could finally glue the upper hull in place.
The fit wasn’t entirely perfect, so I had to use some filler.
After the putty had been sanded down I could start to assemble the torsion arms. There is included some sort of jig to get the alignment right, but every arm is put in a slightly different position, so the jig only fit some of the arms. I saw no real use for it.
All the suspension arms in place and a few of the support wheels.
As i soon need to start painting, at least some of the parts, I need to figure which paint to use. I’ll ask my model building friends if any of these will do. If not I have to order new colours.
Next I’ll start with the parts to the tracks, so I can continue the build.
