The five models took me 10 days to do justice so I'm afraid I'm going to subject you all to a rather indulgent write-up!!
First thing, on opening the box, I was impressed to see how "busy" the sprues were. This is by far the most complex PSC kit I've built so far.
- 2 seated crew figures (Driver & Co-driver)
- 5 Crew figures (4 seated + One standing manning the MG42)
- 3 packs & a rolled tarpaulin
- Spare Tyre & Track section
- 4 Jerrycans
- 2 Kar98K Rifles & a Panzerschreck
- 2 separate MG42's (One with AA mount for the rear)
|The lower hull (top), hull floor (nearest camera) seats and storage hoppers & Driver/co-driver figure|
|Lower hull pieces assembled, painted and washed.|
|Lower hull assembly with the upper hull ready to attach. Both assemblies painted inside.|
|Upper & Lower hulls joined|
|The benches were painted brown to simulate wooden slats|
|Side lockers in place. The locating bars for the track units indicated "A".|
Now it's time to attach the track units. These are "sided" - the drive sprocket being towards the front of the vehicle when fitted.
|The track units are located using the moulded bars marked "A". Also note the front axle has been fitted|
They simply glue onto the hull sides and are locate over the moulded bars shown above.
