Well, well... latest news from the repair shop...

Having removed the incorrectly placed parts as kindly pointed out by Johannes, I spent some time mending the damage and putting in place wiring as well as in the Nashorn mounts for light machine guns and antenna socket on right hand side armour. Some of the wiring will be hidden behind ammunition storage containers and hence the abrupt end (as the speaker placed on the right hand side armour).

Pictures show the now mended fighting compartments of the Nashorn and the Hummel, the business ends of the 88 and the 150 mm guns respectively, another business end (MG 42 close defence MG) and the ammunition storage containers for both vehicles.

There are MANY ejector pin marks, particularly on the inside of the side armour plates, but many are hidden behind equipment or ammunition storage containers.

Now dark yellow paint for the fighting compartments coming up...

Many regards

Good job. Removing the jigs has paid off. Now go for the next assembly steps
You may want to fill the huge knock-out marks on the side armor plate (last picture). I'm not entirely sure whether they will be hidden behind the ammo cabinets.

Thanks Johannes.

And again: thanks for pointing out a very stupid mistake. I'm not a fanatic when it comes to realism, but there are things which just need to be in line with the real world...

The punch marks you refer to will be hidden behind the large ammunition containers...

Many regards

Well, well...

Nothing quite like a small break: I have been busy and had only little time for building stuff.

But as I dragged along the Nashorn, I let it have some company from an artillery brother, and they have reached a state of completion, at least as regards the interior.

They are just shy of being ready for the first coat of exterior primer.

So hopefully within the next few weeks an update...

Great to see it back on the bench, with the interior almost done, any thoughts on the camo scheme?

Thx guys...

Well, in terms of camo for the Nashorn, I've been looking at some pictures of an Italian campaign beast Well documented in Panzer Wrecks.

Don't know about the Hummel. It's an early dude so maybe Italy and dark yellow with spots...

But taking into account the pace so far, this is WAY down the line...

Well, well...

Finally came around to give the two cousins some Vallejo surface primer RAL 8012. It took some wrapping with tape and cushioning with cotton and it will be interesting to get it all off once the dunkelgelb + spots have been added.

They both have a horse shoe for added luck: the shoes came out of the Eduard PE set for the Hummel.

Was very much in doubt if the Hummel should have one or two headlights. Settled on two after checking with some references. Had a lot of fun fixing the wire for barrel travel lock release mechanism.

In the pictures it is kind of hard to see which is which with all the tape, but head lights and barrel travel locks say it all...

Best regards

Great to see they are still in the system Martin.
Looks like governments move slowly all over the world.
