I've uploaded reworked instructions that hopefully are more suitable for digital viewing (and printing on a printer that can't handle the single spread of 5x2 B5 sheets that the original PDF was formatted as). No reduction in resolution etc, it's still a pure PDF, but it's now formatted as 6 B5 pages for the instructions proper, followed by a spread that's the same width as four B5 pages, with the markings on it. The PDF views just fine on my Mac in Preview. Splitting it into pages means the individual instruction pages redraw a lot more rapidly, especially on slow devices like tablets. Please let me know if you have problems viewing it and I'll re-upload the original instructions if necessary.

I've uploaded a reworked version of the instructions. The original was a single large sheet, the size of 5x2 B5 pages, at 300dpi, which was very slow to redraw if viewed on a slower device. I've rebuilt the PDF as six B5 sized pages, still 300dpi, plus a spread the size of four B5 pages containing the markings. Quality should be the same as the original, but the file's half the size and redraw is *much* snappier than the original, at least on the regular instruction pages, and it's more "printer friendly". It looks fine in Preview on a Mac, if it causes problems with other systems, please let me know and I'll revert this to the original 5x2 spread.

I've uploaded a new version of the instructions for this one. I'd appreciate any feedback - unlike the Dragon 6204 instructions that I did recently, where the document is essentially cleaned up high DPI scanned instructions, and weighs in at about 22MB, this one's a lot smaller (about 6MB) because I've spent the best part of two weeks on it, replacing stuff like the sprue layouts with vector artwork, and turning each page into a combination of bitmaps (for the photos from the instructions, albeit reverse halftoned to improve appearance) and vector artwork for lines, paint callouts, symbols etc.

I've tried to replace all text with proper, searchable text, using the closest font matches I could find for the original document. However, the Japanese and Chinese text is rather iffy (done using free online OCR tools) and there are almost certainly errors (ditto for all non-English text - although anything like that is just bad typing) plus in some places I just gave in, and left the Chinese or Japanese text as a bitmap.

If the response is positive, I'll maybe try reworking some more of Dragon's "photo" instructions this way - they're just huge and unwieldy as raw scans, but this one probably took close to 100hrs of work (I'm not working, plenty of free time) so if there's no real demand, the only ones that'll appear are where I want them for myself (I'd like to redo 6204 plus the Dragon Hornisse and Nashorn kits, but it's a *lot* of work).

Anybody know which type of gun is shown being towed in the box art? I’m assuming Russian, just from this being the “Russian version” boxing, and the GAZ-type wheels on the trailer that the gun trails/spades are resting on. So, presumably a fairly heavy gun, split trails, fairly large spades that are detached for towing, anybody want to take a guess?

Hmm, suspect I'll have to pick up the SBS engine to replace the engine bits from the CMK set (which were to replace the resin bits from the Profipack, which were to replace the plastic bits from the Gavia kit). Basing this purely on the quality of SBS' engine set for the Gladiator, which was absolutely gorgeous.

A pretty major decision here - what shade of green? The instructions give a Humbrol paint number that's actually red, and while it is likely supposed to be "British racing green" that's a very vaguely defined color. The research I've done suggests that it should probably be No.25 (Light Brunswick Green) or No.26 (Medium Brunswick Green) from the original 30s BS standard (225 and 226 in BS381C).

However, I'm unaware of anybody who makes good matches for these colors in model-friendly paints. If I wanted to paint, say, a shed, it'd be easy to get a can in a UK hardware store, but getting this as an acrylic or an enamel in a couple of 17ml ti let's...

Changed the car kit - 2-door cabriolet was wrong for the figures. The Masterbox kit is rougher around the edges but can still be AMS-ed, has 4 doors and can be built with hood down and windows too. Looks to be basically the same as the Miniart Cabriolet A, but I plan to build that as a pre-war civilian vehicle. The North Star PE for the Tourenwagen looks good too, if expensive.

Alan, it was very interesting to read your report honestly mentioning every flaw you can see on this build. I guess you will do better next time. And: sometimes less is more ..........👍

I've some resin kits and I still didn't have the courage to start one. I agree that the green could be darker, but I think the weathering is good and the base also 👍
Looking forward to se your new T44😎

This was actually pretty straightforward as resin kits go - very low part count, good fit (after I nuked the upper hull to get it perfectly square) and an easy build. Where it went wrong was the weathering. If I'd kept the chipping to just high wear areas, I'd be OK with it, even if it's a little over-enthusiastic. The paint was WEM's 4BO Green which is good for pre-1941 or so (I'll be using my remaining stock on a T-35). I tried fixing the color with filters and washes, but they were too subtle.

The next one will be built as the same tank - the Miniart decals include 37179 - but with much lighter wear and probably trying for a summery base and dusty rather than muddy weathering. Still want to pick up Voyager's PE sets and the Aber barrels and DT magazines before I start that one.
