Sd. Kfz. 164 Nashorn - 1:35 Dragon

Hi all

latest project ever so slowly gathering pace. Has had good consultations regarding references on among others this new beast and techniques in general with a couple of you guys - thanks a lot...

Well, not much to say as of yet: Dragon (the "older" kit) with an Aber barrel, Eduard PE, and AFV Club suspension and wheel set. Maybe a set of Modelkasten tracks will come off an old Tamiya Jagdpanzer IV which unfortunately turned out rather ghastly...

I also included a picture of a Nashorn seized by Polish troops in Italy: the picture gives a good impression of the size of the propellant charge for this 88 mm variant. No wonder the AT shell had a virtually flat trajectory out till 1,000 m.

So far I have spent a LOT of time cleaning up bit and pieces - primarily the gun parts as well as the suspension but also making the hull ready. The pics show all the little and now cleaned pieces... and a long time it took...

Assembly should start shortly...
