There're some pretty amazing period photographs showing Wehrmacht soldiers with a large variety of different "Feldgrau" shades in their uniforms.

Thanks Johannes,

Here is the next installment ,spent a few hows today on the Aber rifle rack folders .All I have to do is finish off with the bolt heads at the base of the latch .

Still a little more work .

Just the 1 photo for now just to let you know I am still proceeding slowly with the beast.

Michael

Rifle racks are in, a little bit more touch up painting and weathering and it's back to the crew figures.

Hello again

Figure progress on the Famo crew.
The decals are to be applied on the collars and shoulder tabs .
Engine side covers have been detailed.

The drivers compartment in not glued to the chassis. In sub assembly stage the placement of the crew figures and further detailing will be needed before gluing into position.

Quick update.

Driver figure has hands glued into position for steering wheel. A lot more work to do.The cab looks a bit shabby with the crew figures.The figures are still to be flat cleared and detailed a little further.Overall happy with the result.Image shows where some of the crew will be seated.
2 more figures to have the hands glued in place , painted and then we're close to having them all ready to go.

Archer provide some excellent decals and great service.
