Project: 1/35 T-64B Progress II
I finally got the Miniarm turret today, well packed from Historica Hobbies. It was an expensive turret, but it also is chocked full of parts, including a 2 piece turned aluminum cannon!
Of particular note is the delicate casting of the NSVT machine gun, and some of the interior parts that can be seen through the turret hatches! Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be a cannon breach, but for what is there, and the size of the actual hatches, simply placing a figure in the hatches should obscure any further detail anyway.
I'm probably going to start laying into this conversion tonight. The nice thing about the turret is that it is modular, so I don't need to wait for tracks or a detail set before I can slap it together, paint it, and call it finished.
