Hi Leo,

Not as much filler as the other kits. I can't wait for the turreted versions.

Regards,
Saúl García

Not quite.

Most joints actually need filling, only I use Gunze Surfacer 500, and with the gray plastic you won't see them easily.

Now with a little twist of lighting and angle of the camera, you should be able to see it. In fact, Surfacer was used along the whole joint of the engine deck, and need a couple times of filling follow by cleaning with Gunze Thinner.

Also notice the hinges. There are little gaps, which I filled up with tiny pieces of plastic cards, and a little filler.

More "filler party" photos will follow. :angry: In fact, a greater part of the time in building this kit is filling and sanding.

Some places inconvenient for filling.

If the parts line up is is good and result in a flat surface, I might have just glue a piece of plastic card to cover the gap.

Unfortunately it is not.

Also notice the big punch marks. Most of them will be covered by the minerollers, but some of them are protruding too much, and after dry fitting I found you can still see some of these after the mine rollers are attached so I give them some sanding.
