I ran into this thread through a linkback review and had to make an account to check this thread, and place out.

This paper model of an Vc Firefly is so cool, I'm almost speechless, but then I have to rave about how cool the paper A57 Multibank is!

I glad I ran into the thread before the tank was finished. This model is more detailed than most plastic kits!

Really awesome work @Igor

Another thanks to Mike, smithdr and Kevin.

Next step was commanders hatch. A tough nut...
Curved ring consisted only of petals, that later need to be cut into, for hinge axes.
Managed to assemble it somehow.





Pay attention to the order of four rings stripes. Two inner and two outer. Glued one on another with bottom base line.



Ring was curved and glued before putting it on power frame.
After i did it, then only i cut out openings for hinge axes and finally removed
white stripe.





Interesting solution with machine gun holder. For stiffness it has rolled paper inside. Such a awesome consideration in design.



Then i assembled doors and visors, added hatch lock and head cushions and put all parts together.
Ring with doors is moveable inside the hatch.

I am indeed! I was just looking over the site metrics and noticed a lot of linkbacks from this thread. I was FLOORED when I checked it out. Your paper A57 engine is a work of art all on its own!

The M4A4 is my favorite Sherman, because the engine is awesome!

Really amazing job so far! I can not wait for the finished model!

Thank you all for great feedback!

Next part is pistol port.
Interesting solution with handle.
It was manual handle and not a cylinder and locked in close or open position.
Sorry, I accidently erased picture with parts.

I want to point some mistake here - parts 334a and 334b must be glued on
1 mm cardboard (**) and not as marked on 0.5 mm (*).
I noticed it only when i tried to put skin on those.
Luckily, it was easy to correct the error.
Handle was glued only after i glued port door.
