Sd. Kfz. 250/8 Neu, Dragon 1:35

Well, elsewhere progress on my Nashorn and Hummel has been described but actually along the way I got a little stuck with the two cousins.

And what else to do when stuck but open up another box... just to look and maybe see if some of the large items fit well....

So a number of weeks ago I looked over the 23 (TWENTY THREE) waiting kits (is it just me or have others collected kits after kits on sale, 'cause they are new, 'cause they are there...??).

I settled on this little nimble recce/support vehicle. It came with an Eduard PE set. PE was used for the top side armour but not the gun shield: thickness dictated thinner side armour and the Dragon sides were too thick, I think. Not easy to fit the PE side armour, though, and mighty troublesome to make weld seams (which I couldn't find any pictures of... so I hope they were there...).

Gun barrel is the Dragon plastic: it is quite cool with no seams to file away and barrel rifling.

Anyway: not many progress pictures. I've been building along and then got the primer out today...

Cheers
