Sd.Kfz.124 "Wespe" - Tamiya 1/35

Hey Guys,
my M113 is almost ready, so I went on and finished a kit which was sitting on the "shelf of shame" for quite a while. It´s Tamiya´s Wespe, one of my alltime favorite kits.

I used:
Sd.Kfz. 124 "Wespe" - Tamiya
PE - Eduard with ABER-tool clamps
Driver´s compartment - CMK,
Boschlight and Jerry can - Tasca
Tracks - Friul,
Barrel - ABER
Wheels - Dragon (from their Pz.II),
Some parts from the spares box (the grey ones on the pics) - Dragon,
Ammunition and boxes - AFV,
Wing nuts - Bronco,
some scratched parts from Plasticprofiles, wire and brass tubes,
Figure - Alpine with a head from another Alpine figure
I will use Echelon´s Set for a Wespe in Normandy (Division "Das Reich")

In the driver´s compartment, there are still some parts missing and some parts just sitting there for the pics. I will install them properly when I finished the painting in there.















And two full-sized pics:
Bild 1

Bild 2

I hope you like it so far .
As soon as I start painting, I will keep you updated.

Hi Markus,

Great build so far but I think this Wespe deserve PE hooks for side-walls.
Are you sure that, this figur is suitable for a SP gun?

Özgür

As I mentioned on other forum,
it is rare and refreshing to see a well-converted
figure. It doesn't take a lot of putty to
convert a figure effectively as you demonstrated
here. I think you nailed the appearance of a SPG
crew from Kursk or Normandy.

Good job!!!

Hey Guys,
thanks a bunch for the kind words!

Özgür,
the tie-downs will definitely be changed, but this has to wait until after painting and weathering the fighting-compartment. Otherwise I would break them off during the handling (I know me ).
The figure is good to go. You see the men of these SPs with almost all kinds of clothes, even camo-smocks. I considered a figure with camo-smock as well, but as soon as I received this figure a while ago, I HAD to use him. The stance is just too cool .

Marco,
thanks a lot!

Vicente,
I defintely will keep posting updates, but as my speed slows down at the moment (too much work), it may take a while.

Taesung,
thanks a lot!
This is why I really like this figure, you can do almost everything with it . First I considered the guy with binoculars from set 35044, but then he arrived .
One question as I´m not absolutely sure on it. As I added a flap on the watch pocket, I should be able to paint the trousers in the pea pattern, right?

Luiz,
thanks a lot!

You can paint the pants in pea pattern. But if you want to
be more accurate, I would get rid of the flap on the front
watch pocket and make a "sawn-on" watch pocket instead.

Hey Guys!

Mbronen,
thanks a lot!

Taesung,
thanks for the clarification. You are right of course. I guess I was seeing things when I was working on the pants .
I will change that asap.

Alrighty, I got a question for you guys here:
I was looking on a pic of "307" again and I´ve seen the spare wheel that is carried on the right, front, side of the fighting-compartment:


Question is:
Did "307" carry only one of these or another one on the other side of the compartment as well?
