Thanks everyone for the encouragement.

Pack 1

After a quick tidy of the kitchen table I was ready to start.

The stages were unpacked, I then downloaded the instructions from the modelspace site.



The back of the boxes are partially covered in glue, so I looks like the stock has been recovered from the Russian release.

Stage 1

The other packs were stored and this pack was readied for opening.



Upon opening the pack I discovered that one of the turret attachment point had been snapped off. So the build come to an immediate grinding halt until I can get a replacement turret.

Sorry to hear you have an attachment point snapped off, looks like it's one of the attachment points for the commanders hatch if I'm reading your picture correctly.

I assume you've already requested a replacement, a bit of a setback but I'm sure the new turret will be with you soon Cool
