Light Tank FIAT L6 / 40 Carro Armato - Z - Art - 1:25

Light Tank FIAT L6 / 40 Carro Armato - Z - Art - 1:25
Hello everybody

After my construction report of the castle Celadna ind the final phase,.
I start here and now a new construction report.
After a long time I build again a tank, namely the small Fiat L6 / 40 Carro Armato
On four bows are about 900 parts, where there are some micro parts to obstruct.
The construction manual is in Czech and English, as well as several sketch sketches.
The print is clean with slight signs of aging.
Before I start a small overview of the arc

Yours sincerely
Kurt

Hi fans welcome on board ,

Here we go ,

Part 1 has it in itself, there's a lot to scratch and cut ... the reinforcements are already outlined
Edges dyed and folded, thus creating the tub in which there is no frame scaffold ... after gluing the reinforcing parts, the carcasse is assembled step by step.

Yours sincerely
Kurt

After attaching various attachments are now the 1.5 mm rivets glued ... about 380 rivets are placed
The spring elements consist of two parts ... various small parts are installed at the rear, the pickaxe is not yet glued

Lots of questions.

1. The reinforcing inside - your own idea?

2. The rivets - they come printed in the kit? If yes what did you use to punch them out?

3. The rivets - are they glued to extra card?

Very nice clean build.

I also like these small tanks - I think they are great subjects..........
