Well, time for another update…….
The front transmission cover and notek are installed…..


Next time for the rear intakes, assemble the intakes but before installing the covers you will like to install parts B4 and B3 to the hull first as this contains the outer sides of the intake covers and this way is easier to do the covers……….


The muffler and the intakes are installed but don’t put the covers yet….


Install these parts first……




Now the covers are easier to assemble…..


Next is time for the smoke candles rack……


It goes on top of the right intake cover……


Here are the interior ammo bins, very detailed and can be assembled closed or open to show the ammo……


Again I changed the steps on the instructions and glued the floor and firewall first Then I installed the ammo bins where the drawing pointed as there are no Pins or marks on the floor.




Here are the ammo bins ready to install


This is how it looks with all the parts in position……






That’s all for now, thanks for watching, will be back with more soon

I presume the floor slats were wood, looking at this one reminds me of the Sturer Emil interior.

Really is an oddball lower chasis, Pz IV with only six roadwheels. Looks like 90 % of the interior is the Ammo!

Nice job so far...

thanks serpico !! yes the floor is wood, as you said it is a rare tank, the interior is very crowded with all the ammo bins, there is not much room for the crew to move around, and it also used a smaller engine (maybach HL66) and I presume a smaller transmission also as the space on the front is smaller than a regular panzer IV

The Maybach HL66P was the engine of the Panzer II G, H, M and the L (Luchs) so I'm willing to bet that the transmission was also the same as a Panzer II. (By the way, the A,B,C, F and L models used a 6 forward 1 reverse transmission as the 165/1 did.)

Very cool, Abdin. It really starts rockin' with the inclusion of the ammo bins.

Hello!! Time again for a little update…
Its Time to do the fenders, here are the fenders and its parts


I didn’t like the kit fender springs so I replaced it with cooper wire, here are the originals and the ones made with wire.


I installed the front springs then removed the center of the spring and mounted the new ones using the original pins.




On the rear ones I glued two mounting pins from styrene to install the new springs


Here are the fenders already attached to the hull with the new springs






Next came the tools and other fender details…..






Last step on the fenders was replacing the front lights cables with wire…


Well that’s all for now, next step is the turret, it is very detailed in and out
Thanks for watching and stay tuned…..

Good job Din!

Those spring looked more like a shock absorber than a spring.
