Brückenleger IV B

Hello. I'm new in here, but have been in modelling for five years now. Here is what I have on my workbench right now - german early war bridgelayer.


I have used Dragon's Panzer IV Ausf.D as base model and Trumpeter's Brückenleger kit as bridge as Trumpeters panzer IV chassis are poor compared to Dragons. Also there have been lot of problems with Trumpeter's kit bridge laying mechanism, as it isn't partly even similar as seen on the photos. So I have been using lot of Evergreen styrene to make it scratch. However the bridge itself seems to be quite accurate.

Other aftermarket kits I have been using, are Aber's fenders and Archer's rivets. Orange Hobby's extinguisher and Modelkasten tracks will also be used.





























So far by now,
Thanks for looking
Kristjan

Beautiful work there! My Bridgelayer has a similar approach but is being used as an SPG with the 5cm gun.

I definitely want to see more!

Regards,

This is very fine workmanship and fine research. I have been trying to make an RC conversion of the bridge layer Panzer IV; but were stumped by the bridge-laying mechanism included in Trumpeter's kit. It seems Trumpeter only included the mechanism for withdrawing the bridge; but left out the mechanism for bridge extension. And the front-support lowering mechanism seems to be missing. So my project has been on hold for months.

This is very interesting; it is the most detailed bridge-layer build I have seen anywhere to date on the internet. Please keep up the great work! I will follow this build with great interest.
