Tristar Marder III Ausf H - finished

Hi all, it's my first post here.

This is my 6th finished model, Tristar Marder III Ausf H.
Hope you all like it.









Basically out-of-box built except for Model Kasten track and rear basket.
Rear basket is made of brass wires.

Soldering all pieces was really a challange for me but after 2 hours struggle,it has finaly done

Some piece doesn't perfectly sit in place, but Im satisfied with result.



And I decided not to glue superstructures together.

Vehicle can be broken down into pieces.



I didn't pay enough attention while gluing 'bathtub',that negligence causes big gap



Take care this point when you make your own one.

There were lot of challange and fun while making this little vehicle

thanks!

Masanori Coda

I have a question about this kit
Where is the correct position to glue parts C8 and C9 @step14?
I couldn't find proper place for them,so I didn't use C8 and C9.

And suggestions/corrections would be appreciated, especially about interior color.

thanks

Masanori Coda

Hi Masanori,

Welcome to Planet Armor!

Excellent work on your Marder III, I was dying to see one of those finished. The cammo is well applied and the rust effect on the exhaust is very convincing.

I think the extra effort on soldering the rear basket was well worth it as it came out great.

The only thing I would add is some more weathering to the muzzle break. The paint at the end tends to rub off as the crew will constantly be cleaning the gun tube. This will give it the look of polished metal around the edges.

I will be looking forward to seen more of your excellent work here at the Planet.

Dave
