Not much progress since last post. As can be seen in the pictures below I have painted the rear hatches. Furthermore I have replaced the handles on the side skirts with a set of metal handles. I fixed the handles with epoxy as that sticks quite well to both metal and plastics.
Then I have been painting the side skirts and some of the turret side armor as can be seen in the pictures below.
I have lots of plans on what to do next to this tank. At this point I would however like to make some progress on the PT-15 torpedo boat
