:bowty: This is the second kit. Again the tracks lack detail but, the model is very nice.

Wow, very nice. I'm feeling sorry for Dan's bunkers, they aren't going to last long with that thing around. :lol:

Very nice stuff - someday I'll get a nice camo skill like that --- I hope.

couple points on this model --- Loco on the ball assembly for the gun ---- any easy quick way to glue it.

I spent twenty minutes or more watching a movie while I held it together to glue. I used regular plastic glue. So others know what I'm referring to here are some shots:

Also just a note for others that might build this:

:bowty: I put my ball assembly together before I attached the upper hull which I assume you did also. I just glued the post and a couple drops along the edges then put the one side on and pressed the other side in place. I did notice the gun is not tight and tends to drop down when done.

I guess my 20 minutes wasn't wasted. I suspected it might be loose if I didn't hold it - I was just hoping there might be an easy holding method. I have several clamps but none worked as it is in an awkward kind of spot.

Thanks Loco
