Thank you Shawn.
Here are more pictures, first of the glacis with additional details and then of the early steps of the turret assembly.
I created the chamfer at the base of the turret as well as the air/gaz vent.

Yes Philipp the fit is quite good.

Today I only managed to glue some parts as I had to tidy the garage which I hadn't done since my last move late July.

Today the turret has got a lot of items so it does not look naked anymore :lol:

Blast instructions are a bit vague concerning the right location of most of the parts. You'd better use a comprehensive walkaround to understand how some parts are fixed to the turret. Fortunately I found two very useful ones even if they show the same tank in Latrun.

Still have a good amount of parts to glue before I can start painting.

A French modeler told me I should make the mudguard/fenders locks at the front. So I managed to make the both of them according to my reference pictures. With no measurements at hand I do not guarantee they are fully accurate.

Looks the business Oliver

with or without measurements.

Certainly getting the multi media look to the SLA.

Paint will unify but also hide all the work you have done

Great work Olivier

Being away from home I haven't made much progress lately. Fortunately I managed to get the roadwheels fixed and partly damaged. This took me a couple of nights to remove the grooves on the sides of the roadwheels. When I'm back home the coming week end I should be able to give my Tiran the base coat of paint. If real life does not come across the plan. ;)
