Ive been Eying this sucker for months in my lhs so yesterday i finally got it for just €50 it was listed for €63 not worth that so i was happy to pay what i did.

Any how its been staring at me since i brought it home so i had to start it, i dint want to do a new build but meh im weak :)

Not much pics to go on the net except the only surviving one in Kubinka museum in Russia, im going to try put some cast texture on the fighting comp and hopefully i wont make a dogs dinner of that,

This should be a Quick enough build as there is only 16 steps, i will most likly use the winterkettern tracks i have for this one from an other build, so Yes another W/W from me ....there seems to be a theme here... :D will get some pics later so Hang tough

The instructions are full of errors. The fenders are wrong or numbered wrong in the instructions; not to mention one of my fenders was a terrible short shot. I hope you have better luck with it than I did.

The one I can remember, which is why I think the fenders might be wrong, is that it tells you to cement a piece to both sides of the rear hull, but the piece you cement is already a part of the fenders. And it was the left fender with a short shot.

Cool, Nice work Spud. I was wondering if it was possible to make a working suspension on these DML Panzer chassis', I guess the answer is yes. I did the first few steps on my Pz.Kpfw.III Ausf.N including the suspension work but I glued mine in a fixed position. I might try the working suspension on my StuG.III when I get to it.

Looks a menacing looking spud, I see what attracted you to it

Look forward to watching this come to life (if you don't get side tracked by other new builds of course!!!) I understand the temptation!
