Hello everyone,

Little time, little progress. I found some more pictures of Stuarts on the web hereby I introduce Mr Steve Greenberg's M3A1 and one of its restoration pictures: http://www.surfacezero.com/g503/data...rt-rest_-2.jpg

Starting from this point, the floor and interior is quite simplified in Academy's Stuart and I am just planning some upgrade.


In the meantime I ordered Steve Zaloga's Modelling M3/M5 Stuarts book. I'm curious how he's made his M3A1 with lot more years of experience.
Well, this time I started to upgrade the floor using some ear-stick, plastruct .3mm sheet & .8mm nuts cut from hex-rod. Anyone could suggest a good method to cut same sized nuts from hex rods? I do it with cutting them "by eye" and sanding them to level when glued in place...
The result of my Sunday afternoon:


cheers,
Zsolt
