Sooo, this long term project is coming along nicely, slowly but surely.
I already achieved the upper casemate, the main central body and remained the four sides to "dress".
Though the two inner ones are already in progress as is the left outer one, it is now time to show the right hand side completed with its complete set of road rollers greasing ends, rivets and bolts.
Thanks for looking!

Wow!
You are clearly very patient. Excellent detail.

Hi,
After having built this beast from scratch (in the very old fashioned way, only using 3D for the mg ball mounts) using about 595 parts and adding more or less 3370 rivets and bolts of all sizes, the building process is over and the kit is now ready for paint.
Tracks made of individual links are not installed yet.
The model is 67 cm long, 22 cm wide and 19 cm high.
A lot more photos are available @ http://manu-military.e-monsite.com/page ... -tank.html
Thanks for watching.

That is true model making, or should I say engineering, SUPERB. :clap: :clap:
