All,

A quick update on my Trumpeter Panzer IV Auf F. Munition Shulpper.

All Assembled and painted. Still have to weather her and do a few touch ups.



These vehicles were rarely used so the weathering will be light, most likely a few chips and light dust. After I finish the Karl Morse artillery piece I will mate this vehicle with it on a diorama.

Few more progress pictures until next time.

Mark

Thanks, Cristian.
The purpose of that job is keeping the track links in line, with adjustment the gaps. It was made from wooden bars of dental tools.
And about the inside pins, maybe it's difficult to see them when applying the weathering stuff. I think so.

Good to have you back, K!

Nice idea of a track assembly jig Home-made, I guess. Care to share a few words about it? Thanks!

Are those sinks marks on the inside of each track link or supposed to be there? Looks like an aweful lot of work to fill if those don't belong in-there.

OK fellas, calling this one done. there are a few things I'll tighten up when I get the chance, but I need to get to my Pacific Campaign build. Clock is ticking down on that one.








fun campaign, will be watching to see other builds move to completion.

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.

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.

Mark



Thanks for the positive comments
