Just keeps getting better and better =)

I must ask, will you use any magnets or stuff like that so you can open up/remove some parts so one can look inside of this piece of art?

Or will it be completely sealed, as most models are?

Keep up the magnificent work m8 =)

Thank you!

All the armor plates on the hull will be able to be removed. There will also be a removable roof of the turret. Well, the turret itself will be able to be removed.

This is absolutely brilliant.

It puts my humble 'skills' to shame but at the same time is tremendously inspiring.

Look forward to more....

Cheers

Good news, I was a bit "worried" that this lovely piece of art would be sealed but now I can breath out =)

Keep up with the great work Dmitry

I can't wait to see when you make a key to start this tank and drive it to the range to test fire that gun. I think you have modeled more parts then on a real tank.

AMAZING WORK!!!!!

Think you soon have more parts built by your own hands than parts from the original kit =)
