This is CMK's conversion for PzIV in 1/72 scale. Set consists resin and PE parts that are not too difficult to use. So all in all very easy and fast set. I used Revell's PzIV H which is good kit in itself so not much work needed there.
Most of time was used making a new better looking chains for crane. Those look quite nice, only problem is bent chains that don't look convincing. I have to try to straighten them somehow.
Bergepanzer alone is like fish on dry land so I will eventually build a dio with another Revell's PzIV and maint crew to make some engine maintenance. But it's a long way....




Hope you like it and have some comments, too

Niko

A small addition here thou the work done is not that small. I've been struggling with tracks and this is the result of last night:



Not that spectacular than with the masters but I'm quite happy with it. There is some twists but I won't correct that as parts are too small to rehandle them. Sag is quite big but it is on purpose

I managed to create a kind of technique to tackle with these and when time permits I can show my approach Basically it involves carving EVERY piece of track that are going to be used.

More of this later,

Niko
