Mini Groupbuild: Neubaufahrzeug (Rheinmetall)

A few mates and I decided to do a little groupbuild here, we all wanted to show non mass-produced variants, prototypes and preproduction vehicles.
I for myself choose the Trumpeter Neubaufahrzeug, the first of 5 produced prototypes for a German pre-war heavy tank. It was (as No.2) made of normal steel, but it?s the only one wich ceept the Reinmetall turret and is also the only one which never saw action.

Did just a cuick calculation... each sprue holds 10 bolts for the right and 10 for the lift side.... there a seven sprues in a bag... and 4 of those were in the box....which gives in total....a hell of work :O
30. November 2013, 23:26
Wow,there it is....just about 3 weeks until I get mine.
30. November 2013, 23:27
Fabian D.
oh and just forgot... every tracklink has 5 joins wich i have to remove...
30. November 2013, 23:29

30. November 2013, 23:33
Hunter Cummins
Well fabian you are in formquite the treat :P and id rather have those damn DS tracks then those ;)
30. November 2013, 23:54
Fabian D.
could be worse.. i´ve rationalized the whole process, so i saved some time.... according to the empty sprues I´ve got 30 done... makes 100 to go... to complete one side...
as you should see in the pic, they stay at least workable ;)

1. December 2013, 01:12
Hunter Cummins

Nice, I always like watching your projects, excelent models!
I'm wondering when Trumpy will bring a Leichttraktor on the market, that's still missing in their series of paper tanks and prototypes. *ooops, guess I'm playing too much WoT...* :)
