Those tracks are wild. Like longer, bitty Minenraumer feet! Don Barry as a young Wehrmacht crewman?

Thanks for the feedback, guys! I acquired a couple more of these kits and decided to build a second, just for the halibut. :woohoo:

I also bought a couple Voyager Model PE sets, some badly needed parts come with this set.

The detailing of the engine deck and mesh is weak on the kit, so the grilles are a must have. There is also a mesh cover for the muffler, suitable for mashing up.

OK, so the jury is still out on the PE fenders. The kit parts are nicely detailed, but if you want to damage them, PE helps. Bottom line, I spent a couple hours building and soldering one PE unit that winds up looking like a fender. :idonno

I discovered these parts are copper, with a thin layer of brass plating. Between the flux and heat, the brass disappears. :blink: :hmmm

There's more fun to come, the second unit will be a close support vehicle for infantry. What could we do to it???Stay tuned and find out. Thanks for coming by!
