Been working on mine. Same kit with some modifications. I'll do a build thread once complete. Still lots to do.


Need to widen the brass mantlet rain cover before final install. Modified the servo locations to get some gun depression.

Removed the molded straps and made my own out of leftover brass sheet and photo etch sprues.

It looks like a well engineered kit, with better features than the old resin Juckenburg one.

From what I've seen of the Jukenburg one it's better, but not perfect. I've actually made quite a few changes to mine to make it more accurate. I don't want to stomp all over this thread.
