W.I.P Tamiya Leopard 2 A6 - Part 3

Right.. time to update this .... 

Last time, I stopped after I put up the turret. Now, I start by putting some of those I need to put on top of the turret roof - 

Followed up some kind of a box inside the spacing between the turret and applique armour  ( I really have no idea what that is ) -
And two more boxes that goes on inside the Aplique armour itself -Right - 
Left - 
After that, I put on all the applique armour ( front and sides ). The side armours swivel open like so -
Next, I put on the Commander's sight -
And I moved onto the back of the turret. I had to removed some of the moulded on buckles and put on PE ones 

Followed up by what seems to be a fold-able rack -

Which goes on to front wall of the turret bustle like so along with some more stuffs on the floor -

Ok, the cable winder is quite crooked but I can't be bothered to fix it.... LOL
The same kind of rack was built for a second time and put on the outside of the turret bustle - 

And the entire rear turret wall was attached - 

Two side baskets for the rear turret was made from kit supplied parts and PE -

Which goes on the turret like so -

And I have to spend 2 pain-staking, eye-aching hours of putting those tiny chains on the smoke launchers caps -

Left side -

Right Side - 

After that comes the wheels -

And now, this kitty is about this complete -

Until next time and many thanks for all the supports as always. 

Oh, and I just remembered, one of a reader said that my old background was making things hard to read and that fonts are small so, I changed the background and will start typing in this bigger font. Hope that's ok with you guys.
