lookin' good :)  I like the horizontal mufflers at the back (a very late-war thing applied to KingTigers & Panthers as well as the latest Leopard-2 ;) ).

The turret is now complete, the launcher attached and the housings for the rear stabiliser jacks are in place.  I still have to build the elevation rams and the stabiliser jacks themselves and complete the detailing on the launcher. Hence why the whole thing is currently sitting in its travel/zero elevation position. It will all look a lot better with a lick of paint - hopefully!

Thanks and welcome.  Yes, the first attempt only got as far as hole #7 before the drill decided to do its own thing!  :o

Just about all of the build is now done save for some 3D rivets and perhaps the hint of some missile nose-cones.

Painting next. I tend to use a light grey primer first as this is good for highlighting areas that might need a little bit of extra filling and sanding. Then the whole thing gets a pre-shade of matt black and that is then followed by whatever camo job I decide to go with. Decals, varnish and weathering all to follow and hopefully, I have one more to add to the collection.

 Looks mighty good. I like the re-orientation of the mufflers and the stabilizing jacks.

With the primer coat applied the whole thing is coming together nicely...
