So let's begin with Step 1. & 2.



Here all the parts needed all clipped from the tree and cleaned up.




the hull side


and bottom


the first part to go in place are the pieces Number E8 & E9 which get glued into the final drive mounting areaa on the hull part Y.




The fit and engineering here intimates a very pleasurable experience is in the offing. The plastic has a very perfect feeling in regards to its hardness and composition as well.

Let's take a look at some of the other parts needed in Steps 1. and 2.

The Idler wheels


the Drive sprockets


the Return rollers



the Road wheels

Here we see the front plate parts that include the towing bracket pieces




I'm not sure if I will but I may paint the inside of all the road/return wheels with the primer red color and paint the tires on the inside before I glue them all together.
As an aside here is a pic of me standing infront of the Pz. IV/G at Munster roughly a year ago. I got many pictures there on this vehicle.

Well Guys, thanks for the enthusiastic encouragement! This will just be a F2 outa the box.
Here is the progress of today;

So continuing with the drive wheels here we can see that the joinery is pretty much mapped out- there is one tab that is thicker than the others which is intended to fit into its corresponding slot.




all glued together



next to the Idler wheel assemblies.
