Back from one trip, heading out on another one. But did get the tools installed. Need to get the tracks painted next.

Thanks for all the positive comments.

I managed to get the tracks primed and painted. Will start on some simple weathering when I get back.

Looks good, Mark! Is that black-brown with metallic highlights?

Welcome to the campaign, Tom! Looking forward to more of that kit!

I used AK's Track Primer then used TS-42, light gun metal. Still needs some weathering

Back from my latest trip and finished principle assembly. I will probably do some simple weathering, but not a lot.

Finally got the Dicker Max started. Step 1 and 2 done. All the wheels and the movable boggies took quite some time....
Nice detail, but some ejectionmarks and seams on the leaf springs but I didn't care to fix it as it will never be seen behind the wheels

Thanks everyone for the comments.

The build is now complete. I did a little weathering, which I usually don't do. Overall, I'm happy with the build.









Looking forward to seeing everyone else's builds completed.

Mark,

Very nice finish with your build. This has always been one of my favorite AFV. Nice to see another one built and not overly weathered.

Atle,

Very nice work on the tow-point. The first one for my Panzer IV took me longer to assemble then the second one. The fun part was aligning those bolt heads correctly. Again nice work.
