Marco,

If you can/want to - add valve stems on the wheels.

Marco,

That's looking so cool. I can't wait to get moved so I can get back on the bench!.

I took these photos while in Spain and you may find them useful.

These are 2 cm German AA Flak shells


This displays shows 2 cm German Anti-Tank shells. There are three groups and from left to right - Czech, German and Italian


The display descriptions were not that detailed and I am not sure if these are the same shells that are used by the 234/1.

Marco,
The 234/1 looks great. Sanding on all those tires and rims was big fun eh? After looking at your last post I AM going to order that Armorscale barrel. It looks to nice not to use. Not to mention it is more correct dimensionally then the Schatton one? Great work once again, I look forward to watching your progress everyday.
Paul

Hi Paul,

I decided to make it in early version...and the paint scheme as per DML provided...




It would be a pity if such a nicely built model would show an incorrect paint scheme...Please consider that these is the late (End 44-early 45 ) factory scheme and that , AFAIK, it was only applied to "late" (Two bin in fenders) 234/1.
By the way, looks like Dragon has changed the scheme from their original drawings in his 234/4...

Hi FJ,

Thanks for your head up...that means if I go with the early version...I should use the 4 bins Fender instead of 2...and the scheme should follows the box art

Thanks again...

You could also do something like this...Looks like faded whitewash on a "standard cammo " late. A real challenge for any painter From the Frontline Ilustration "Konigsberg 45" title .Cheers.
