A clearer shot of the roof (and the bulge for the electric traverse mechanism).

Comparison shot of the Marder III and the Rubicon Jagdpanzer 38(t).

I sprayed the breech assembly before adding the shields.

Note, add the nose to the hull tub before adding the tracks.

I have to decide what theatre and hence a colour scheme, and add some stowage.

Looking good  . How are the crew figures  ?  Good enough or do they need some replacement heads , arms , etc ?

On initial inspection they look okay. I will photograph them (they are still on the sprue) and post them on the blog.

I have not compared the head sizes with other plastics (If I do decide on DAK, I would like to add some caps rather than helmets)

My plan is to paint the Marder then add crew, drilling holes for pinning legs etc.

Of course I am easily distracted...

Thanks . They don't look too bad . Nice to have the option of using various arms from the parts box if you want to . Some plastic 1 piece figures are a PIA to do surgery on  ::)
