The components for the kit are cut by a laser into the card and MDF. To keep the parts on the card there are some small tabs that you will need to cut.

When you want to remove a piece from the card, cut through the remaining lines to release the part.

The MDF pieces only need to be pushed out of the frame. Some of them are quite thin so be careful with these pieces.

I use superglue for construction as it bonds fairly quickly (within 3 seconds) but feel free to use whatever glue you are comfortable with. White wood glue also works well.



Start by removing the main turret piece

Pre fold all the bends and then hold the edges indicated by the (1) and the red arrow together and glue them.

Then fold the base of the turret round and glue the edges of it to the side of the turret (2)


Now fold down the other edges and glue them to the base.



Fold the ammo box as shown and glue it in place

What is NOT shown is to glue the two hinges on to this connecting the ammo box to the main turret



Remove the top turret plate from the frame and glue it in place

Fold down the edges and glue them in place too.



Glue the hatches, periscope glasses and front plate in place



Assemble the turret hinge as shown.

The best way to assemble this is to pop the hinge into the vehicle and then glue the turret on to that.

This way you know that the hinge is centred on the turret



Assemble the barrel and glue it in place

Cut a short piece of the thin tube for the aerial housing and then glue in a short piece of the very thin rod for the aerial

CONGRATULATIONS! You are done.
