Thanks Mzsoft, sorry for the late reply.

Head down and into trying to finish the tractor.

Been awhile since last posting and back again with a small update to the Sdkz9 Famo tractor. It's 95% done with the addition of adding the clearance markers on the fenders and the latch's on the tail gate. More detail work to be done around all of the Tractor.
The windscreen has been proved by far the hardest to get together in the whole build.I shaved off the windscreen wipers and used aber wipers with Edward latch's on the front windscreen.Way easier to work with than Abers's multiple hinge parts.

Back with a small update, in 2 minds to mount Famo on freestanding board or diorama base.
Had an urge to work on a Miniart building and found this baby a challenge.
Been working on the house for the last few weeks and the Famo has been on the back burner till I work out the
diorama layout. Something like 17 years since my last large diorama and have started with the base and building first. The famo may work but if not I will work on both at the 1 time and we will see how it goes.
Collated a few items for the base and dumped into a box to keep altogether. It's early days at present more items need to be ordered.

wow again...

I know I repeat myself, but: WOW
Those buildings with the figures show how big this setup is. Nice work but still looking for how the base will end up
cheers,
Zsolt

I would like to do something with my Tamiya Sd.Kfz. 9 and Trailer but just don't have the room. So I am waiting. I actually have some of the trailer done. Thought that I might just display that alone with a StuG or Pz. III on it. Good job.

Thanks Roy and Zsoft

I am leaning towards doing the tractor and trailer as a stand alone on a free stand base and build something totally different with the diorama.

My incentive at present is on the diorama base and sparodically go back to the famo in between.

The main part now is with the chaining of the panzer 3 to the trailer.Hit a roadblock and have lost incentive, but the mojo will come back and I'll keep moving forward with the diorama base.

Thanks
Michael

Thanks Abdin,

The end is near and incentive is lacking.

Will attempt to get back to doing some more work over the weekend and post some images on progress.
