WOW, you was busy all weekend
I need for this a month, to build it.

Is it all scratchbuild or Resin?

Heh-heh, Hilbert I've been working on this thing close to a year now, but it was set aside for some other projects. Basically I finished up the turret over the week and weekend. No way I could do the whole thing on one weekend - not at my speed . It is a resin conversion from Maple Leaf Models, some Eduard bits, Elephant tool clamps (late WW2 German, no less).
Yep, Tom, Italeri 1A2 sprocket, the vehicle I am doing didn't have the ring which rides beside the guide tooth, so I just built up the Italeri sprocket to throw on (without the ring) - same with the MLM chunked wheels, used the Italeri halves, since I had assembled the R-G ones already.

Cheers,
Jim

That's a great level of detail.

Where did you get the resin FCS box? Did you use the new Eduard set that includes the grill under the screen on the engine deck?

Thanks for the comments, Guys. Paul, I just made my own mold of the 1A5 kit 'doghouse' (I sent the original away with the master bits to MLM), also then I'd have extras for the A1A1-A4 kits if I wanted to convert them. I used the Eduard set for the 1A2, so it didn't have the lower grille bit, have to get a couple of those newer sets still.

Cheers,
Jim

I sure wish Revell would have had better placement guidance for the turret side armor. If the front is in the right positiion then hole for the smoke launchers looks too far back. Any advice?

I'm wondering if I should attempt to correct using the Peddinghaus turret as a guide.
