I've finished the Gun and added the Camoflage black over the main white base colour.Although it's a fictitious scheme to me it's ok.As you can see the snow camo doesn't work too well on grass but it is what it is.

All in all the gun goes together quite well,the only issues with it are down to my laziness and the desire to get it finished.Once I get more time I might look into doing a little fettling but for now I am happy with it.

I've got some other work to do but the Tiger will be my next project in a couple of weeks.I will do a build thread to run along side Vince and Brian's build although somewhat behind their builds.Mine will be from the perspective of a complete novice.I just hope my skills and patience can do the Tiger justice.I will be going for a more conventional paint scheme than the gun....Not quite sure yet but it will be Normandy based.
Hope you like it....I do.

It looks great Glen! I’m inspired to get working on mine. Guess I’ll wrap up the Tiger first. Funny we have the same kits working on them in the opposite order!

I suspect you may find the Pak "light duties",after building the Tiger Brian.I need to tidy up my other jobs first so I can concentrate on doing a good job on the Tiger. The gun has got it's own parking area in my shed,it doesn't conflict with heavy motorbikes being moved about.
The print on the shed wall is Wittmanns Tiger in Normandy.I got the print from a shop in Ste Mere Eglise in Normandy and managed to get it home on the bike without damage.The shop did offer to post me one out from a shop in the UK but that's not the same.
