I built the Revell ŕebox on Scalemates and it really holds up as a kit. I suppose you will expose the engine, I left it out because of the heavy louvres.Good luck!

Thank you Steven. Yes I am going to expose the engine. At least with the louvres that can be posed open. And yes, I am finding out this does hold up well as a kit very nicely. The Italeri mold makers did very nice work on this one.

One thing I decided to add to my model are 2 raingutters on the cupola.


But I think these are not on all versions.

Those rain gutters were more commonly seen on some of the different NATO army M47s. US M47s did not carry them. Probably because of their short timespan with the Regular Army.

Thank you Paul. I'm looking forward to getting past the engine compartment and then getting some momentum on this project again.

Thanks again all. My son pointed out I hadn't put a picture up with the engine panels open so here they are.

You took an old kit and made it shine with modern techniques. Unless one plans on doing quite a bit of serious correction work, you have probably done all that can be done with this beast. Bravo!
