Though there are many burr and parting lines, it is the tolerance level. The size of the axle doesn’t match an axial hole of a tracker roller. It is the impression that the part accuracy is a little insufficient on the whole.
This reminds me, I have to separate the parts other than a Magic Track. The center guides are another part this time, so it takes time. Since the part accuracy is good, there is no trouble in particular and the assembly of a caterpillar was completed.
I am assembling the body top surface. There are many big parts with slight deformation. I confirmed it one by one and assembled it. I attach the small parts by progress at the same time, but I think whether it is a consideration that attaching the small parts later because I needed the adjustment of the body in various ways.
The twisted upper body has a bad influence, a chassis is also twisted at the time of upper and chassis adhesion. When it’s put on the flat, it doesn’t become stable. I can go forward without amending that twisted body, it can’t help being corrected.
I put a top body in hot water, adjusting the form of a twist. I was quite worried about such a dynamic work after a careful assembly.
I struggled to correct the chassis distortion, the ordinary tank’s the remaining work is turret which is not so difficult. Tunguska is a long ahead from here to the goal. Assembly instructions are not yet progressed only up to one-third.
I completed the turret first because the missile launchers and anti-aircraft gun are too complicated. Never mind, there are manual errors and I proceeded with my own interpretation. Otherwise, it will not complete all the time.
For the adhesive strength, missile launcher was reinforced with epoxy putty from the bottom. I have a reinforcing metal wire embedded in both the sides of the missile. I wonder if someone successfully installed the missile and anti-aircraft machine gun only the included parts of this kit?
Many metallic parts are used, and when it’s made up, it’s a cool vehicle. The perseverance and resolution are needed to be here. It won’t be stopped on the way, and while the willpower continues, I recommend to put together quickly. It couldn’t be put together quickly in case of me.
Tunguska is the name derived from the River in Russia. There was a major event that a meteorite had exploded in the air about 100 years ago in the Tunguska area. This anti-aircraft tank was named related in an explosion in the air. The appearance seems strong.
This mark is one of the Guards Corps. Guard forces were an elite military unit in the army of the Eastern European countries (former Soviet side). There was no explanation in particular by instructions of the panda hobby, but a unit in which army district is it? I didn’t have a weathering on the missile launchers. Well, I think it was not made of aluminum.
A gun turret is toward the front, so there is an open space in the rear. Many panels and nets are arranged. I suppose there are an engine compartment, fuel tanks, storages of the missiles and bullets.
Roughly speaking, 80 percent of the connecting points don’t fit smoothly. I had troubles with an adjustment of big parts and a main connecting point really. I can laugh and through all problems, if it’s the 30 years before released kit, I think few modelers are convinced.
This Tunguska is a high-performance weapon, it seems that the high production cost prevents the widespread deployment in Russia in large quantities. The kit price is also quite high.
The assembly of the last part, I did my own judgment some process where I couldn’t understand with the manual. When it’s done up, it’s powerful.
I am interested in models of tanks, airplanes, ships, military figures, I build it little by little when I feel like it. I am also interested in the history of war. My starting is Tamiya’s Military Miniature series in the elementary school.
From elementary school through university students repeatedly suspend and restart my modeling, it’s about 25 years of this hobby’s history.
Born in February 1970, I live in Tokyo. From February 2007 I was quietly doing a site called “Miniature-Arcadia”. It is being transferred to this blog with the same name from December 2016. My update pace is uneven, but please come to see here occasionally.
