My first modelling project back after approx 25-26 yrs...

The kit:

Started with a Dragon cyber hobby kit and I have added lots of additional details, some through resin kits and some I made myself with green stuff or with spare photo etched "sprue".

Everything is pained by hand with brushes since i have not yet invested in an air brush.

The build:

Found the kit to be abundant in parts -- and the fit was sometimes scetchy. Perhaps because i interpreted the instruktions wrong... either way, had some frustrating moments during the build. Tracks are out of the Box but were assembled one link at a time (2 parts per link)- that will test your patience for sure.

Some work left on this vehicle - like painting the Jerry can holder and replacing two of the nozzles on the cans in the back that fell off- and final weathering and Dusting on the coming diorama (el alamein).
The diorama will feature some figures and an old Verlinden pillbox that I found in my Basement (prob 25 yrs old). I have, however, some customized additions to the pillblx as well.

Thank you for your time and feedback.

Looks good. You've captured the right appearance for the Western Desert, (worn and tired).
Nice to see a model build of a subject I'm interested in. Personally I'm building a DAK Panzer IV D at present.
