Thank you, Zsolt. The rivets were more like meditation, than madness.

I'll continue with a few additions needed to complete prior painting the interior.

There was one brass section added to the roof. I had tho fill two holes each side of the plate because estonian tankettes seemed to not have these. Also there are four little tiedowns added to each corner of the superstructure - probably for fixing the tarp.




I also built the hatches - not entirely happy with these, but they will be folded open finally and the imperfections hopefully wouldn't show up.






Gauge panel on the other hand was somewhat easy and straightforward to put together. And the periscope was made with PART brass and modified with a few bits of styrene.






And this is how the interior looks just before the paint goes on.




Thanks for stepping by,
Kristjan

And now the inside of the upper hull is painted and weathered as are all the details that are going with it. After last checks and touch-ups the lower and upper part of the hull were joined and glued together. So far so good.

The hatches seen in previous post were painted alnog with other details, but I'll deal with these later on.

I'm happy getting all this interior stuff done and can at last concentrate to all the remaining details outside of the little vehicle.

The last bits and details are now all there - the exhaust muffler, spare wheel rack and tool clamps at front plate.

Tools and muffler can be removed to paint separately, of course.






And so does she*look all built up and ready for some paint. Somehow the last details makes it look bigger and more serious than the little thing*actually deserves.*

It's quite heavy too for its size - 31 grams without tracks and hatches.












I've started with the base and with the figurine as well but not much to show so far.
