Tristar Panzerkampfwagen 38(t)

Well finally found some tiem and space to build something. Thought I would give this new kit from Tristar a try


It went together pretty good. There are a few issues that I will point out in the Step by Step to come.
Hard to believe that from this


you can get this.



This is still a work in progress so keep that in mind
I'll post more in progress shots when I can find the time...

The instruction sheet. BTW- this new set that Gordy has installed seems to resize images - if you want to see the full size images you need to click on them.




Steps 1 and 2

What's the Tanks & Armor book like? Does it have photos of the interior?

The MBI and the Russian title have more photos of the interior with the Russian one having a couple more than the MBI. They all seem to be from the same series of pics. I'd say unless you speak Russian-best value for money is the MBI book.

Be interesting to watch your progress James. I'm about 80% done with mine. Some aspects of the kit were great, but I found others to be troublesome.
