Keep at it Artyom. I know that desire to see a model finished as well, but you are doing such magnificent work it would be a pity to rush it finished (or not finish at all!).

Hi,Peter! Don't worry. It will e finished. Since Cromwell I have a rule that every started model has to finished. And no more parallel projects. So I hope soon I will be able to show more details.

It certainly looks difficult but you are doing precise and excellent work as usual. You nearly have 30,000 views now, congratulations & keep going – I really want to see how you handle that turret

Hi Tim! Thank you! I need more time to work with hull. Many thing are waiting for assemble. Headlight,additional lights, holders,dozens of nuts,siren, mudguards and so on. Hopefully I have chosen early variant without additional armor on turret.

Past few days I was working with lights on fenders. I suppose my variant is better that the kit's one. Unfortunately they are too small so I need to fill the gaps which I may only see on photos. And I need to "switch them on" with cables and make some bracing on lights rear.

Some little update. I have almost finished headlight box,added more bolts on a front. Those fire extinguishers are really headache. I've made only one yet.

Magnificent work Artyom & I completely missed your previous (September 30) update. I think if I had your talent, it would be very difficult to paint over it all! Keep going, keep safe and I hope you will transfer this project to the new website soon.

I just had to check "Pyrene" - it was a carbon tetrachloride foam which may have injured more users of the extinguisher than victims of fire. Heat from the fire could convert CTC into phosgene gas, the chemical weapon used by Germany and Britain in World War 1. Perhaps by placing the extinguisher on the front of the tank British engineers were having what in gambling parlance would be called an each-way bet

Thank you! I am very pleased!
I am ensure that the model consists of small details. And when you pay attention to each you may have a great overall result.

Hello Tim! Thank you. I am keep going but the temp is very low unfortunately.
I see a new bookmark with Forum but I don't know how to deal with it and even more so how to transfer this topic.

Thank you for interesting information about extinguishers. It is really amazing. Many thing amused me in this tank and this is one of them of course.

Tom states they can't transfer topics across, so a new thread will be needed. You also need to sign up again, as the new Forum will not recognise you from here.

Thank you! I see. I won't do new thread with A13. Too much material and information.

Greeting,friends! I have a little progress with my work. Second extinguisher, headlight box , wiring to the headlights and lower armor plate. All this thing were very hard to produce. Some thing are left to be done with hull. But not much. I have already researched turret. What can I say. Overall the turrets is very poor. One big mistake.

Thank you friend! I am very pleased and happy that you also like the result. Your words support me to do further works.

Little update. Now tank has a mirror. I am very happy with an opportunity to work with details. I like this work. One regret the outline of the mirror is not very smooth.

A little update. Now I have some photos with some damages on A13. I've decided to make a little compilation of such damages to show some interesting constructive features of A13. It's a horn and front fenders. There is no horn in a kit I've made my variant. Much work ahead as always.

Greetings,friends! Unfortunately I was ill and didn't work with model. But I have gathered some material about stowage. I hope next week I will be able to show some progress.
