Hi,
Thank you Higusan for the instruction sheet and your quickly post ! I had some problem to rebuilt the kit and a part was broken, but now it's ok.

Cerwyn,
thank you, very beautiful work ! plastic seems to be metal...
Paint is a problem for me because i havn't the competence and not equipment, i'll see later, now i make modifications.
But grips paint is not a problem, i'll make real wood Grips.

Decrease of the trigger.
Increase of the diametre of the axis.
And the real gun.

It is always a pleasure to see members going the "extra mile" to create an excellent finish to their modelguns!

You make the plastic kit look like metal - and with the wooden grips it looks real!Excellent! cheers
Thanks for posting the photos.

I am convinced that if your painting skill is at least half as good as assembling the model, the result will be excellent.
If not for the distance, I would lend my airbrush

Hi,
Thank you Fastferry for your encouragement, but my last experience was with AIRFIX and MATCHBOX kit armored cars there are a lot of years, and some Warhammer with my son, it's not the same work...I don't feel it

Initially the weight of the kit was approx 0.13 kg !!!!, 0.29 lb, 4.59 oz, very light and with the lead ballast is x 2 (0.26 kg, 0.57 lb).
It's not a lot, but it's more real in the hand and it's a great difference.
