Mounting the MG was a challenge - I had lost some key parts for mounting it, so I improvised with some spare pieces I had lying around. They looked like little mechanical mountings - once they are green with the rest of the tank, they look fine.
|Radio antennas were easy to add by using floral wire|
|I used grey for the lenses for the Shtora jammers, instead of the evil red I used on the T-90s|
I lost a couple of the components for the Shtora system - a couple of receivers (or something) that were mounted toward the rear of the turret. But they are pretty minor pieces, so I don't think it matters too much.

This T-80UK will ride along to battle with the other recent arrivals to the Chemical Commie motor pool.
