I love these 30'ies suspensions. So much more fun than the unified later and modern look...

And so many pieces to glue together!
2. March 2019, 18:47
That's part off the fun

So far, everything fits reasonably well together. Just some sanding involved and I had to cut off a badly aligned piece in the back.

There are two types of plastic - the wheels were very well made, but now I'm adding parts in the inside and those look old and have lots of imperfections.

The lil´fellow will need some putty and gentle sanding
The off-center hole in the drive wheel does not look too authentic and the interior may require some attention too... Unless you want to point out the Achilles heel of open vehicles and make a post-grenade encounter treatment on the inside
If everything goes wrong => this: [img1]

Which off-center hole do you mean? As for interior - sure, that is going to be somewhat of a challenge. The tarp might indeed be a good solution for this particular piece. I think most of what is visible right now will be completely hidden in the end, but let's see (pun intended).

Well observed Slavo

Lol, right. That one will do.

Sprocket hub fixed, first photo etched parts added. Tried Vallejo liquid putty, but it seems to shrink a bit as it dries. Will retry tomorrow.

More photo etched pieces added, though seemingly no progress made. Shame a lot will be hidden in the interior from view. We'll *I* know it's all there and was a lot of effort.

Someone say we men only care about the flat visible "outside"... It´s the inside values, hidden from plain sight we are truly aiming for... Also, in my experience actual progress on a kit is just a secondary goal, mainly utilized for justifying further purchases

I'm probably too stupid for the photo etched parts - half of the steps in the PE manual reference pieces that don't exist in the kit's manual. Sometimes I can guess where they go by the shape, but there are some where I just don't have any clue.

Maybe they refference the other manufacturer on an Italeri/Zvezda kit... Watching Girls & Panzers for refference may help too, they have pretty accurate gear...

Lol. Definitely not the Panzerjager I, though.

Great to see the shopping-kart elements and both main armament pieces find their way to the model!

This is what happens when early 30'ies armor design meets Minecraft...
Looking good with all the bits & pieces on now!

Added diorama experiment photos. Still need to finish weathering.
31. May 2019, 12:19
Fully weathered photos added. Need to give it a layer of varnish and it's done. Thanks for encouragement and comments, everyone!

Thank you, Holger, Tim and Bill! This model was on a shelf for 20 years, feels great to finally get it done. Now just to learn how to take representative pictures and off to the next! A Tamiya BT-7 awaits.

I agree with Chris. More photos?
8. June 2019, 22:24
Added a few more photos in its final state. Comments welcome!

I always admired these German vehicles which combine the Pz I chassis with fighting compartments hastily designed in Minecraft... You paid this idea a more than adequate tribute by wrestling this deep-'70ies rooted kit into its current shape & putting a rather decent paint- & weathering job on it - Good work!

Nice weathering, it looks great, but I whould give it a fine desert dust cover? Just My two cent HO
14. June 2019, 19:54
Rui - agree, I tried experimenting with pigments, but it's not fine enough. Maybe I should try one more time.

Normally more accumulated, in the lower hull and horizontal surfaces
