Here's my finished Tamiya SU-85 tank destroyer. Built pretty much out the box, though I had to pinch the spider web wheels out of a Tamiya T-34 because one set of road wheels were badly miscast. Also replaced the horrid kit barrel with a aluminum replacement from Eduard.

Is actually really nicely done..

could you possibly try to take a couple of pics in better light and not on such a yellow ground? I think it probably looks even nicer in reality and would love to see it!

Nice work indeed. I agree, we need better shots.

Nice job, looks good.
I must try using a metal barrel one day, saves all the filling and seam sanding.
