As always Ambjoern,

Great work. Those nuts on the Drive sprocket look REAL small.

Thanks for your comments guys, appreciate it

I added the bolts tonight and yes Larry those bastards are really small. I am going to get some bolts from Grandt line or Calibre to save some time for the next build. Are those any good?

Here is a pic together with my hobby knife so that you can estimate the size of those nuts:



And here is a closeup of the drive sprocket center with the nuts and bolts:



This one is finished now. But now I have to do another one. Geeez lucky it's weekend now...

Hi,
this was really something I've been looking for my small scale StuG III project.

Br,
Niko

Yeah, James I wanted to order that one first, but spending another $28 (with shipping) on this kit Besides that I would still have to add the center nut, bolt and washers...

thanks anyway

I've had a busy week in the office and I'm off to Skiing next week so I haven't got much further with this build.

I am doing the boring part at the moment anyway. Cleaning the track links

That's a lot of work with all these pin marks. While some of them are raised and easy to remove with the hobby knife, the others are recessed and requires filiing witt putty. And I really hate those F*@#* pin marks.

Here is a shot of a track link as it looks right off the sprue:



Here is another view so you can see the pin marks:



This is the cleaned track link with the opened up guide horn. It just needs a little brush up with a toothbrush and a wash with soapwater and then it's ready for use:
