Well that was a close call. This morning while waiting for some coffee I did more of the turret and one of the radars.

Now see that big gap on the roof?

Well it was bugging me. So I checked the instructions yet again and nothing showed there. I had some coffee surfed the web a bit and started this thread and then went to take more pics. Again checked the instructions. Then looked through the parts to see if there was some filler that hadn't shown up on the instructions. There was another roof and it looked slightly different. I looked through the instructions and low and behold the version I was doing had a different roof. I blame lack of coffee and not marking the steps to follow like usual for this mistake.

So applied glue to the seams and waited a few then pushed up from the bottom and safely removed the roof. I'm glad it didn't wait like that for a few days. Installed the new roof and it looked much better.

I almost forgot to mention the parts that needed filling. I used plastic slats and touched up with putty.

Got the top antenna almost done. And finished the BUK-1/SA-11 for work. Glad its off my shelf now. Used Master Club tracks and used brass pinning.

The Pantsir is coming along nicely. The BUK-1 has ben on a shelf for the past half year I think. I thought I had lost a drive housing and finally bought a new kit. I primed and painted it on Sunday and found I had the wrong one. Looked at the sprues from the old kit and there is was. So at least I can build another BUK sometime in the future.

Nice work so far James, but it’s not nearly beat up enough to be Syrian!!!!
