Which parts did you add? Scratch or did you get them from somewhere?
How does the parts fit together? Easy as Tamiya or ?

Check the alignment of the road wheels before you add the tracks, nr 2 from the front on the left side looks as if it is trying to escape

It will be interesting to see the paint and finishing.

The wheels are movebale, so no Problem with the tracks (I hope so).

I added only the pe parts for the Tools and the box on the rear (from Paper Panzer Production).

why did the design not include a commander's cupola?

Is there any resin aftermarket Panzer III / IV cupola available? I would like to add a cupola.

Probably cost cutting measures.

PanzerArt/Armorscale make a resin copula.

Thank you. I will look for the resin cupola when I get my Amusing kit

I just noticed the Amusing kit's hull is different than the Kraut Kits conversion.

I hope Amusing will also bring out a "Sloped hull" Panzer IV as well in the future.
