Hi!
Two years ago I started this build, but due to lack of free time I was forced to leave this project.
Now it's time to finished my favorite magach variant.
Turret is almost finished, needs only some small details, anti slip surface was made from Rust Oleum anti slip spray. The main reference material is of course Michael's book. I want to attach crew's personal weapons to the mountings on turret, but I can't find the photo where Glilon is already attached to this mountings. Somebody can help me?

Some pictures of model:

Bartek,
Nice work. Intersted to see how the anti slip comes out with a coat of paint on it.
I have looked at all my pics and cant find personal weapons either

cheers
Kev

Hi,
very nice work.
The personal weapon mounts go just in front of the hatches on the roof armour. They are in a V like shape. Althogh I have seen then in different places as well.

Pan Bartek,

The V shaped two brackets are of a limited early models.
In the serial, the commander's mount was moved to the right side of the turret.

Please send me your email address via PM

best regards
Michael

Thank You Tony.
Another few days of work, and another details added.
