Excellent Stefan. Those first pics remind me of a blow up dummy tank!

The camo work is superb.



DITTO!

Hi everybody. The Wespe, slowly but surely, is coming along. Base dunkelgelb with preshading is down. I will add the green stripes after I complete the fighting compartment. The superstructure walls and howitzer are not glued in yet just posed for the pic. Having a bit of trouble with my airbrush (might just be me). Anyway, love the builds you all have going. Strong work.

Recently built both StuG B and PzIII G that were both Cyberhobby. But before that, I think they were miniart or something. Definitely not Dragon's best molds but still ice kits.

Raj,
Great idea! Love that photo, too!

SpeAking of Cyberhobby.... is that just another name for Dragon?

Gaz



Pretty much

Originally they produced a limited run series of kits based on Dragon kits just adding extra or special parts to make limited run vehicles - the SDKfz 234/1 with the alternate 'small turret', adding sprues for stadgas to other vehicle kits etc. They were/are referred to as 'White Label" kits.

Now they basically re-release older Dragon kits (some ex Gunze, etc) as 'Orange Label' kits with a few new bits and bobs thrown in to hook the punter - "new magic tracks" or 'DS tracks' to replace older style, add a figure kit, etc.

I must admit i got carried away building my kit. It was good fun, and i just kept building,



Sounds like a bad case of Builder-itis.

We have all been afflicted at one time or the other. Unfortunately there is no known cure. You just have to ride it out

Nice work Martin, Don. I must admit i got carried away building my kit. It was good fun, and i just kept building, thinking ill take pictures next evening. Well, only minor parts are left to attach now, major build is mostly complete.



Still got some decisions to make. As i plan to build this vehicle:
More pictures of it exists, including color one. First, it has some "one of the kind" spare track holders on the front. I havent seen such one any other marder, or i dont remember seeing them there are some more minor additions here and there. Next, cammo scheme seems to be airbrushed, but touched up later on with lighter tone dunkelgelb (which looks like light gray in color picture). Or it might be same tone, but as its brushed, plus applied later it gives such result. Thats going to be funkiest paint job i have done so far.
