RSO mit PAK40

I've started working on this vehicle today, using these kits and an Eduard etch set.



Pics will follow as soon as there is something to be seen

I haven't seen this kit for ages. Looking forward to see you build it.
Are you going to use the kit's tracks or replace with AM ones?

Rick, the detail is somewhat crude in places, especialy the chasismolds which are showing their age (lots of flash, and some misalignment). The etch is for both the RSO and the PAK, but i'm not sure if i can use the PAK parts on the DML PAK.

Lawrence, i was looking for this kit for ages, finaly got one second hand. The package came with (assembled and painted) WW2 tracks, so i'll be using them

Fletcher, i might be crazy, but i'm not insane
I have to admit i love the look of the Aber etch, but i would never be able to put it together

Hello Jan,

This one is high on my do do list also. But I am still in the process of gathering bits and pieces so I will follow your build with great intrest.
