Vehicles - APC/IFV's

Thanks for the compliment, I found the courage to add the front doors this weekend. Now it's only the roof and then I can start the gun build.
Time for the PAK. The barrel is fun, but they totally botched the pre-bent splintershields. They were both a bit deformed and easily corrected, but one is completely plied to the wrong side. So I will have to flatten it again and then "counterbend" the bends. And it has to be perfect to get the spacers into the locator holes. We'll find out next time if I had to buy a new shield or not.
It's worked out with the kit shield and both plates are now positioned with the AFV spacer set. I even have enough bolts to do a Scheunentor afterward, so that goes on the wishlist. The torsion bars are staggered, something that is arranged correctly in the kit but is not visible in the build step aspect. Therefore, checking with your Nuts&Bolts reference is really helpful. One locator block had to be removed to correctly place the extreme parts of the torsion legs.
The wheels are now added, with some minor changes to the trailer arms. Attention is needed to only remove mold lines and not the weld beads visible in the reference pictures. It's ready to be painted now.
Keep up mate! Bravo
