Looking great Simon. I like the mods you did to the road wheels. One of my favorite Armortek vehicles.

Best regards,
Bob

Thanks Dave but i cannot claim any credit for it's construction, The Waltham Abbey Wizard came to the Rescue. Here's a couple of picture's of the rear section made by Michael Matata, another wizard of model building.

Thanks Fabian, hope all is well with you. i have started adding detail to the side panels, there were different rivet patterns on the sdkfz 7 depending on who made it , where and in what year, i chose the 1937 Krauss Maffei version from the jentz and doyle book, this version has all the goodies on, extra lights!. I think to do all this detail is best with the sides off, including the tricky side bead, rubbing strip, regards simon.

Looking good Simon, using push on track lock taps on the handles is a great idea...
