Cool Tristar Pz.Kpfw Marder III Ausf H mit 7.5cm PaK40

Look what arrived from Hong Kong today!



First off, a big THANKS to Mr. Pat for sending this to me

Second, this is the coolest kit tristar has put out yet. Tons of detail and parts, everything looks excellent.

Tristar has beefed up their box for this one:



Opened:



And all the parts debagged. Lotsa styrene



I'm not going to do sprue shots as lawrence already has some excellent ones on his blog:

Armor. Sure a heck of a lot better than that crappy CH "update" set













A couple of pin marks to clean-up but shouldn't be too hard. They are in a nastly location though...

The jackblock. Phenomonal texture!



Ammo for the bins. full ammo is also provided:






PaK 40 parts: from AFV CLUB

extra bolts for the unused (and not included) regular PaK 40 armor:



Breach block:





Muzzle brake:



I might use a DML one as I hate it when they are split down the middle

I also like the DML ammo tubes better; they arn't split in two:



DML shell are holowed out:



I'll be pretty much dropping everything except the FlaK to build this.

Great stuff Fletcher. Have you considered using the Armorscale rounds?

Looking forward to follow your build.

Excellent choice there, young Fletch Are you going to spruce it up? I'm building mine totally 100% OOTB to show how good the kit is as stock standard.
