Another long stalled shelf queen about to bite the dust.
Trumpeter's Pak43

I'm at the point where the weathering and
handling is starting to knock bits off the too fragile carriages already, so it's getting to be time to wrap this one up.

Still have to re-install the ammo case behind the gunshield and drive the groundstakes into a base, but at this point we're pretty much done.





A little detail painting behind the shield and a flat coat left as well.

If the carriage does not have tires, the wheel contact point with the ground should have the paint worn off.

thanks, forgot to mention that the kit has odd vinyl 'rim' tires that will go on last as well.
