Hey Marco,
seems like a great kit.
I too want to build it in a while, so your SBS is very welcome.
Just one thing, I think you glued the springs on the wrong sides compared to my 1/35 Nashorn and IVs. Maybe you can still change them.

What a way to wreck your enthusiam. I've really come to expect mistakes in kit's instructions these days- almost every kit I've built lately has had one mistake or two...
I always try and dry fit and double check references now.

Man that sucks, but at least you can fix it. I've seen errors in instructions lately myself, I guess the latest being the FAMO, it seems now you not only have to have a reference but a very technical one at that in order to build these things correctly.

I hope whoomever does a full online build review of this one point out these errors, I've heard of quite a few others too concerning the Hornisse that I bet are carried over.

Good luck.

Cheers,
Donovan
