Hi all,

Here is my first model in Vbench.
Since i was not familiar with modern vehicles i did not make a good research before getting this model to bench. Since i am a little bit tall (196 cm :D) it is a real pain in the neck to work with so many tiny parts...
Anyway it is going to be finished in anyhow...
First lower hull and wheels...

I was surprised when i noticed that mechanism holding rifles is not moveable. And some pieces are very hard to recognize where to go.

Working on rifles..

This is another hard part of the model since parts do not have clear joint points. And when you do not attach them properly they do not align and cause problem during the construction of last pieces...If it is in budget limits metal rifles option should be considered :thumb:

raise the table (work bench) height. it is just matter of ergonomics...

Dear Hertsog,

Matter is not ergonomics. Probably i could not make myself clear enough. Matter is either i need to decrease size of my hands and fingers or increase size of the pieces of the model :D

ok, i went with neck pain :D
