It is is a very cool kit to build. It’s detail is very good and has good potential for interior detail. Iit also comes with 88mm rack’s. I used photo etched parts from Eduard and a Jordi Rubio gun barrel. The Zimmerit is from Cavalier and fit’s very good.

 

I also used Andrea Minatures machine gun rounds. These add a nice touch to any model,

 

The tow cables were scratch built frome small wire. Tracks are Friulmodel (these guys have to make the best tracks on the market).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

l used Tamiya XF-60 & XF-64 for the camouflage. I air brushed “132” on back of the turret.

 

Weathering was done with enamels & pastels and the mud was made from Tamiya flat earth, Tamiya putty, and static grass.
