Sorry to join so late Alex. Please note that the RB Barrel is designed for the MiniArt Su-76M & ZiS-3 guns while the one in the CMK kit is heavily based on the Italeri ZiS-3 (re-released in Eastern Europe through Zvezda and modified into the 57mm ZiS). You may find that the Italeri gun details are finer than CMK's.

Nuts & Bolts also has/had a book on the Pz.Kpfw. 35 (t) while Charles Kliment has a book on Czech AFVs and Spielberger has one on the 35 (t) and 38 (t). Each has its own merits. The Tacam vehicles are covered in the book "Third Axis, Fourth Ally" by Mark Axworthy.

Removing parts from Eastern European kits is what caused them (Eastern Europeans) to laser cut saw teeth into a double sided razor blade. I bought mine in the Czech Republic in the 1980s for less that $0.50 each while now they are expensive but still available from JLC. The razor saw cuts through the gates easily and was safer than my previous method of a hot knife (X-Acto #11 blade wired to my soldering iron).

Your suspension units look far better than the kit. ?Is this yours or from Royal Models?

I uploaded some very old photographs. Never completed scanning them due to a scanner incompatibility with Windows Vista. Sad
