I am building working healight unit. Bulb is from maglite solitaire. I wanted realistic beam and led light is too blue and bright. If there is battery compartment might as well use it. Headlight is attached with small screw if i need to replace a bulb. The wire from healight is too thick and off scale because i wanted to use connector.

Man, I really want to build one these 1/16 kits at some point. With my luck, I'd find out how many things it was missing, or got wrong, and spend the next year building 3D models and printing them all and never finish the actual kit. Seems to be all I do these days, is find more stuff to make.... 😁

I noticed that some of casted parts does not have appropriate texture. I wanted to recreate soviet armor real crude casting.

Before processing.

After processing. I used tamiya limonene to soften surface and then used wirebrush to create small inperfections. I think this looks far better.

Good to see some old style calipers in use. 
At some stage, I thought it would be a smart (and modern) idea to use digital calipers. It was a good idea, until I found out that the battery was always OOS when I needed to use the calipers 😤.
I have reverted to the old-style manual calipers. Now the only potentially OOS item is my eyesight 🤓

I use digital calipers at work, but i rather use analogue when possible 👍
