First bit of detailing of the Waffentrager's breech assembly.

I loosely fitted the breech guard before gluing the spent round buffer (it probably has a proper name) to the breech. I then glued both ends of the guard and cut off the tag end flush(ish) with the bottom of the buffer.

I need to assemble the pivot into the turret before I try adding the sights etc.

Sorry, but looking at this again confirms why I don't want to work with resin kits.  No offence to Rubicon, whose resin casting is clearly above average.

There are not many kits that you can dry fit, resin or otherwise.


I have not started gluing anything else together yet.

I have added rods for some soft stowage on the rear plate and a jerry can.

The hull needs disassembly before painting and I still need to detail the turret.

The extra details look great  :D what else are you planning to add to the turret?

I was inspired by Ballardian's rain cover (I had seen models with hand rails but thought that was too much "chrome" for a last ditch piece of kit).

Interior will be in two stages, one is the addition of a radio, two boxes of something, two gas mask cases and the tube for the sight.

The second will be the crew, as that will require possible scratch building and I would like to have the model painted soon. I will leave the turret unglued to allow access.

Oh, and formal apology to Ripley, my excuse was I had not seen the instructions and thought the gun mount parts were on the outside and that the  socket for the locating piece was the sight opening (I did wonder why the loader had a widget above the  turret top, at least I did not claim it was a machine gun mount ^__^).
