This is a very basic kit that requires lots off additional work. 
such as:

- added missing wiring

- added missing return fuel lines

- added rivet detail on the commander cupola ring and exhaust shielding
- reworked all the storage container fasteners, fuel drum straps

- replacement of the light guards

- adding the mud guards/ fenders

- reworking the mantlet cover 

- adding bore sightings points on the crown of the gun, plus drain plug with few extra fasteners etc. 

- welding seams

-additional detail for NSV , Utyos machine gun

- adding locks on cupola hatches

- making antenna whip out of brass tubing and monofilament 

and

Mmmmany others.  :)

Did I enjoy it, yes. Would I do it again. Probably not.

There were no beads at all to start with. I messed them up on the fenders, having no time to fix it before the show, they look little odd. Honestly , there's so much more to add and correct and at this scale possibilities are endless.

Thank you Carl, I just started Andy's E-8 and it's a night and day difference. Absolute joy to build. And great canvas for some obsessive detailing. 

Aiming for this at the end.
