Gosh, the internal stowage detail really is quite remarkable, and provides something of a contrast to plastic kits of this and similar subjects which are normally so inauthentically empty.

Assembly has started. One of the neatest sub-assembly is the 3-piece P/E front suspension:


Hopefully it'll be complete by the end of the day.

Progress is glacial and yet progress it is. Painted in my favorite late 1942-early '43 scheme of Dunkelgelb over the pea green and Panzer Grau. Ran out of "panzer yellow" so I mixed my own.

Airbrushing 1/87 is tricky. I have some spider-runs to clean up.

I didn't see a front bumper included in my kit. You list it in your review, but I don't see it in any of your pictures either. Am I missing something?

What? No indy link tracks?

Seriously, I can't imagine how you guys work on stuff that small! I'd go blind!

No, my mistake. I will ask Artitec if the bumper is intended to be included, or if we are to use our ingenuity.
