This kit is still going strong after some 30 years. Looking great!

Totally agree with you. In fact I've overhauled mine a second time as my modelling skill progress.
Eric's yours is looking good so far.

Your tank looks fantastic!! Great job on the build and paint. Even though I have a Takom Mk. 1 on the way, I have a Tamiya Mk. 1 also, still in the box, and with Eduard PE, too. I was thinking of trying to find a new home for the Tamiya version, but now Iím thinking that I want to go ahead and build him. Not that it will turn out as nice as yours, though 😊

Eric, how much of the Eduard PE did you use?

THank you all. Curt for the p.e I just used the hinges for the compartments, those things that hold the mudflaps (for lack of better word) and port side additional compartment in the turret.

Nicely done! Iím not familiar with the tactical marking on the side skirts. Is it supplied with the kit?
