Staying in the Tristar mode -I finally got this Late version of of the sports car of Panzers
I hope to get the Aber sets for this to do all up- I did do do one of the earlys with the Tristar resin interior set and some older Pz.1 Aber sets.

I also got the Panzer 1A late from Tristar & the Aber's interior set. I plan to complete the AFV's 88 Flak Gun first... then go with the Panzer 1A project.

I am under researching the info on the Panzer 1 tank...I have saw your Panzer 1 early build logs on TL's...Great job :lol:

What book you recommended for this build? I had the Panzer Track No.1-1 reference book only.

I got a carpenter at work to whip up a little storage box for my Aber Interior Set. The plastic/cardboard box arrangement that it came in just didn't do it for me. I gave it a coat of 1 Hour Varnish.

Jerzy,

Did you use any of the new Panzer Tracts books? Panzer Tracts 1-1 lists the shortened M.G.13k as being introduced in late 1935/ early 1936.

If you meant that one gun was mounted further in the turret than the other (making one length of the exposed barrel longer than the other), this is correct regardless if the guns were the original M.G.13 or the shortened M.G.13k. The books have super accurate 'as-built' plans in them so I highly recommend their purchase.

Regards,
Saúl
