The turrets parts were carefully removed from their casting. The pieces were cut using a Dremel tool, Exacto knives, Exacto saw, and sandpiper. I had to proceed carefully to avoid damaging the parts. The circular disk is the turret ring adapter provided for the Trumpeter kit. The turret base was particularly difficult because of the amount of casting that had to be cut away. It all worked out.
The tracks have received a second layer of colouring. This time using Vallejo Panzer Aces 304 track primer. Again the air-brush was used. There are more layers to come. It does not show well in the pictures but the tracks have been sprayed to allow the black in the crevises to remain.
