Hi all!

Some progress:







































and now I have a YouTube channel

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbRjao4C5_UHTiNwvys13BQ

where you can watch old videos in HD. In the future, I think to do a few videos to show all moving parts.

P.S. Some photos are clickable and have a size of 1920*

This thread is like taking part in a real time restoration of a 1:1 scale tank

Simply freaking crazy Dmitry!

The level of detailing is phenomenal. This is model building on a higher plane.

Another sweet update Dmitry!

I just bought Takom's 35th scale Porsche turreted Tiger II....and I have the Ryfield full interior Tiger I. Looking forward to eventually using both as reference, along with your builds, to create a factory floor dio for both of them.

Keep up the stellar work sir!

Amazing. I just bought the Takom 1/35 King Tiger Henschel w/zim full interior...I doubt it will have this much detail. Very nice job. I always wanted to check out one of those 1/16 bad boys.

Dmitry -

Without a doubt, the most impressive and highest quality detail and workmanship I think I've seen. You're beyond amazing, Sir. It is like looking at an intensive breakdown and detail review of the actual KT, not a 1/16 build. Truly amazing. I'm inspired to get myself going again as I am recently retired and finally I have the time I want 'to play'. Now thanks to your inspiration, the desire is back again. Thanks and keep it coming.

wow, truely, take some of your pics and PS them into a workshop setting and this would easily seem like a original restoration project.

Amazing.

Dmitry, if you carry on like this model-makers’ brains all over the world are going to start exploding, including mine – like in “Mars Attacks!”. Obviously I can’t claim to have seen every excellent build over the years, but I can tell you that this is threatening to topple what I consider the most perfect masterpiece I’ve ever seen – Brian Wells’ scratch-built Nashorn, featured in Military Modelling mag. Vol. 28 No. 12 August 1998.

Maybe you covered this earlier on but my (inevitable) question is: how much of this interior detail is going to be visible when you’ve finished? I guess it doesn’t really matter, you – and all of us – know what’s inside.

Sublime.

Thank you very much for your comments guys!

In my opinion you exaggerate my abilities. This is just another КТ model. But in any case it's nice to hear such words and they help me to continue my work. Thank you!

Tim, answering your question, the hull is completely closed, but all hatches will be moving. The roof of the turret will be removable.

I sometimes do not understand why I've been doing this everyday! during 7 years

By the way now I'm doing racks for shells in the turret and it will take a fairly long time so just do not think that I gave up. I hope, the result will impress you.

Hello guys!

It took only 8 months, and I already had Turret ammo racks

I apologize for being so long, but it truly was a colossal job.

Kit piece:


Reworked:









real KT ammo racks for comparison:




And three new video on my channel:

My god!
You are one serious model expert Dmitry

I have never ever seen anyone do that kind of detail work to ammo racks =)

Your rework from the original is, well, it's much more than a rework. Its a complete makeover haha =)

Very impressive indeed. Threads like these who make it worth spending time here on this forum

Keep up the excellent work Dmitry
