Yeah, I had bought this kit over a decade ago all the way from New York City. The store was supposed to be the sole hobby shop in Manhattan and although the selection wasn't that spectacular, I chose this kit since at that time I had been reading a lot about the Eastern Front and I knew this was supposed to be a nice kit with all the interior details like its bigger Trumpeter cousin. I also had read the fit wasn't necessarily that good and that many parts would have flash on them. That really was the case. Through the years I had tried to start this kit several times but to no avail. I still read about the WWII and now that my 7 years old son is interested in armour (we've watched movies like Fury and Saving Private Ryan and of course B of B TV series and he plays World of Tanks) I finally had the urge to tackle with this kit. This is actually my first proper tank model after chilhood's Matchbox armour. No AM parts were used but for the first time I used several MiG (or AK) weathering products. I also tried to achieve some streaking effects with oils - for the first time as well. My goal was a pretty fresh machine but with some obvious signs of use in dry summer conditions - somewhere in the Eastern Front. The only scratched additions are in the fighting compartment and in the engine bay. The diesel lines and some wiring and cabling were added here. Oh, and the antenna and its spring mount was made from wire. The turret was completely smooth on the surface so I used liquid glue to soften it up and then used an old toothbrush to achieve that harsh look of cast steel.

It's taken three years to complete this build, due to life, work and my two other main hobbies! However, during the ARC blackout, I managed to get it finished, or as much as it is ever likely to be. The kit was given to me around 2010/11, but I didn't make a start until October 2011. I never build out of the box, and I'm always looking for a different way to present the model and a story to tell - hence the hangar queen being stripped for useable parts. Like all model, it has its flaws, but overall, I'm pleased with the way the weathering and particularly the figures turned out ( I've always struggled painting figures! ).
