Next - I masked everything and put as much as I can parts together, to avoid color difference on different parts.

Then I covered decals with mix of hairspray and some water color as masking solution. I put water color in hairspray to see better if everything is covered.

Progress update. Wheels came a week ago, they look really good. I did some surgery and cut inner part of kit wheel end glued it inside resin one.

Now it will not only look good, it will be easy to fix on the model.

Very nice indeed Richard. Nice to see all 8 wheels on the ground too.

What plans do you have for the final painting? standard 3 tone Camo or 'desert camo'?

I have used Panzer Art resin before. Casting flaws on one set of SdKfz 254 wheels, but the other 2 sets I used were excellent. Hope yours are a good set.

Uff, Peter, that is a real problem. I have all my data backed up on tree computers. And on a flash drive... Hope you will salvage your data.
I ordered Panzer art wheels. Hope they are ok.

Very Nice Bogicevic. Which wheel set did you decide on?

Got my PC back, lasted 4 hours and then same issue. Keeps losing the Bios settings and shuts down by itself. Now it wants to repair the drive and when it does, it will not restart as the BIOS settings tell it to boot from the wrong drive. Been to 2 places to have it looked over and both have the same answer - buy a new one.....

I hope I did not lose the data on the drive....

Coming along very nicely Franck. I love the Staghound, such a large, chunky vehicle. I did the AA version a few years back and picked up this version after that - still in the stash.

I am working on painting the interior and all the internal stowage for the Otter at the moment. MY PC has issues and is in the shop for repairs, so all my references are inaccessible at the moment and I can't complete it until I check a few things.

Should get it back today or tomorrow, so my son can have his lap top back and then I may have something to post here in a few days.

Thank you Peter. Somehow, I got mixed up while watching walk around pictures and painted steering wheel wrongly. It's fixed now.

Just glad to have you on board Bogicevic. It is always interesting to see other people's take on building the same vehicle.

We have had a few Panhards built by different modellers for this build too. It is not about building something different, it is about having fun, and I hope you do have fun joining in

Thank's Peter. I know that my 222 will be one to many but I don't have anything else that will fit this campaign. And the end is approaching fast...
