Thanks, Mike.
You over-exaggerate the skills thing a little - I'm just a slowly learning hobbyist like everyone else. My lately acquired soldering station helps the brass part though and has made assembling the etched parts easier and more enjoyable.

The next thing to deal with, is the front and the rear glacis, both with the hatches. The hatches are from Part set and are meant to be soldered together of two sides and had these little hinge pins to be seated in the grooves of the plastic plate. The grille part on the rear hatch were a bit more challenging and needed some care because of the construction Part uses. Instead of interlocking assembly, they have little pins and the ribs were not fixed in the position. The plastic part of the rear glacis were too fragile at the end too, so I decided to do one myself using brass sheet.
