Don't forget the one that was captured with the Sturer Emil in Southern Russia late 42/early 43. It had white-wash cammo in the photo with the Emil.

Life's so very funny, you just need to remember to laugh [note to the clowns].

Why would the clowns not let people into the tent? What's the point of the show if they don't? .

Thanks for your input guys, here the next update

Just a small thing i noticed. Maybe I made a mistake, but I need to remove the raised detail on the inner side of the visors to get a proper fit:


James suggested to add the inside edge of the fenders and here we go I also added extra details to the visor, some old Aber parts from my spare box. The distance between the back rests are to narrow in the Dragon kit, some putty and repositioning fixed this issue:


Here you can see Dragons so far biggest flaw, the position of the support beam is too high. I can live with this issue...



I added the grab handles for the driver, and deleted the right visor with a steel plate made of plastic



Here the interior parts, only missing the instrument pannel.



Fantastic kit so far, I enjoy every minute.
And now, time for some paint. I will dust off my airbrush at the weekend, lets see if I can still handle it.....


Cheers
Manuel

No update, just a question before I will start working on the paintjob :
Are there any authentic reference images ( all I have are from restored vehicles) of the interior colors of pz. I tanks? I assume overall Elfenbein, but what color was the transmission, or the floor?

Cheers
Manuel

Short update,

finally manged to put some color on this baby. I will go for the africa version, so I add a ton of sand to the interior. So far I'm not really happy with the outcome. Does anyone have interior shots from open top desert vehicles?


Still some tweaks to do,

Cheers Manuel

What a great job, Manuel. The extra interior work is just wonderful. I think that the interior colors/weathering are looking just fine. Maybe a little pin wash in certain areas to bring a little more detail...but it is already looking fine to me.

Rick

I can't see in your pics if you has glued pieces A9- A12, A10. Be aware, instructions are wrong Pieces D5 & D6 seems to be wrong too

Cheers
