djizomdjinn Posted October 2, 2015 Author Share Posted October 2, 2015 Still a bit slow. Still no progress on the assault gun, a combination of the SPG looking better, being easier to think through, and being almost done. A bit of a light update (haha, puns!) The searchlight now has a seat, donated from a half-broken 1/35 motorcycle kit that I want to use to scratchbuild something else... (I'm NOT working on it further until at least one of these two tanks is done though!) Built a light platform, built a mount out of square pipe and a short round pipe section. The end of the searchlight stand will just sit in there, nothing holding it in place so it can pivot freely. Forgot to mention last update, but I got some treadplate patterned styrene. So the turret basket floor and the light platform both have nice treadplate floors. Also, that rear sprocket swap. Nothing more complicated than shaving the pins down slightly. Sanity checking with the 1/35 figures that came with both kits. It's not the five feet off the ground that I thought it'd be (and wrote into that story short), and the gun shield's high enough to give some protection to the legs, but it's still pretty exposed up there. 8 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
