The tracks arrived the other day and as I am off sick they where built in one day. Nice and easy plus they have much better detail than the kit supplied tracks. Once built they had a bath in blacken it then a good dose of MIG pigments applied wet. after a suitable drying time I dusted off the excess and using some rough sandpaper and a graphite stick added so shine to em.
The next step was to fit them to the model and then fit the gun cradle and carriage a very delicate operation calling for three pairs of hands. Here is the carriage before fitting into the hull.
And here is the finished model. well pleased with how it can out, just as I visualised at the start, a rare occurrence for me!
Now to finish the kettenkrad, paint some figures and do the diorama!
