Another small panzer, the backbone of the Wehrmacht in the 1930's.

Gentle persuasion on the hull sides to get them to fit correctly.

You seem to be enjoying the tank era for models - when you have made them ALL what will be the next thing ???????

Who knows?
Once we get our new garage, maybe a model railway?

I deal with the individual links by sticking batches of 10 together and then applying them to the tank.
I do the putting together of the links on the non-sticky side of double sided Sellotape - they don't stick to it.
The picture should help.

These tracks look like hard work to me.

They went together surprisingly quickly.

Undercoated.
No, I haven't spent all day and night modelling.
Walked from Flamborough to Danes Dyke and back this afternoon.
In preparation for a new garage we took a load of rubbish to the tip this morning.
I have probably done about 3 hours modelling today.

Painted in Panzer Grey - one of my favourite colours.
Pin washes applied to rivets and raised detail, I now need to wait for the oil paint to cure.
Patience, what a virtue, overrated maybe.

I decided to add a few extras, spare track, wheel, towing cable and  a commander.

I like the figure - very natural pose and puts the tank into  scale.

Tamiya figure actually supplied with a 38t, but reused here.
