A question

Why did you choose the DML wheels over Tamiya's?

Hey Guys,
thanks a lot!

Aleksandr,
this will take some more time. It seems like the Wespe isn´t as finished as I thought.
I spoke with Niels Henkemann (who did the research for Echelon) and he told me some things I still need to consider, such as the brackets for the spare wheels. After looking in the WWP-book about the Wespe, I saw some more stuff I need to do, so there´s still some work.
I will keep you updated.

Mark,
the Details on the DML-wheels are much better than on the Tamiya-wheels.
And as I like the Wespe more than the Marder II (this is where the wheels come from), I chose to use them here. I can still use the Tamiya ones on the Marder and muddy them up .

Thanks a lot James!
While I have the WWP-Book about the Wespe, which covers the same vehicle from Munster, your pics showed some better details and some spots I need to work on.
Isn´t it a cute vehicle when standing next to it? I have seen it in Koblenz a couple of years ago and fell in love with it right away .

Glad you like em. I think I do take good pics - I should be putting out photo books, if I had the time.
I have some old style, (negative film) pics of this one at Koblenz too from a previous visit- I may remember to dig them out some time.

James,
you really do take excellent pics, something you show with each and every build and walkaround.
I would buy every book you bring out without even looking in it (as long as there is at least one pic with a rose in it ).

Peter,
thanks a lot my friend!
As there is some stuff I need to do on this build and work is a pain in the butt at the moment, it may take some time till the first paint hits this build .

This is a very nice build, Markus. I like the Wespe too, very much, and always have. I've always liked open-topped SPGs, although like halftracks they are so much work to build well. This looks like a nice kit to start from.

Carry on.
