Hi Neo,

he details you put into your builds are truly excellent. One thing I do like in particular is the very small chains can you explain how you make them.

Hi, Scottie! I try, but it rather hard to do things like this. I can do some kind of step by step instruction but only on Thursday. Tomorrow we will celebrate the greatest holiday in Russia. We have day off:cool:

Hi,Scottie! As I promiced. A little instruction.
1.Take two drills. You may vary drill diameter or quantity depending on what maesures of the chain link do you want. If you want longer - make 3 drills. Bigger one - take drills more diameter or more thick wire.

2.Hold drills togetrher.

3.Put wire under drills.

4. Bend the wire around drills in two directions.

5.Bend until it will be look like that.

6. Remove drills.

7. Cut at this side.

8.Now we have a chain link. We can put in together with anothet link and then bend open side by tweezers.

Hello Neo,
Many thanks for the tutorial on making your chains.
You asked about my piano hinges - it is all illusion - I have some strips of Eduard 00 099 Rivets (positive). I lay one strip the length I need, then next to that a length of copper wire that has been rolled gently under an old file to give an idea of the hinge, and then a second strip of rivets alonside the copper wire, prime paint and hey presto piano hinges.
Cheers,
MikeC.

Still working with sides. We need to separate all riveted plains.

Artyom this is fantastic work mate, incredible attention to detail and the skills to match, I'm loving your kit choices too, I hope one day a model manufacturer releases a kit that is good enough for you to make out of the box. :tongue-out3:
I'll be watching with great interest.

Hi,Evan! Thank you for your words! Usually I build something rare:smiling2: what nobody builds. I have stored some interesting boxes for the future. So one day I hope I will share my materials about A39 tortoise, Voroshilovets or Hungarian Toldi:rolling:

And I have T-60 from Miniart. Excellent kit, I think I will build in OTTB:thumb2: But I won't promise :smiling2:
