Tamiya 1/35th Jagdpanzer IV Lang L/70 Hungary 1945
It was the summer of 1978 the last time I built a tracked vehicle. At the time it was the new Italeri Sherman tank. Don’t recall the version, but the type with the bathtub style upper hull. While perusing Ebay one day looking for a particular model I stumbled on this kit for 5.00 that was already started, so I took a chance and won the bid for as it looked like no one else was interested in it. All of my armor builds since that time have been wheeled soft skin vehicles. Like jeeps, armored cars and transport vehicles. Once getting the kit it went to the stash. I did get an Eduards PE set for it just to add some more detail to it. Like the fenders, come of the tools and the rear side plates over the engine deck. The tank is painted with Polly S Dark Yellow, Tamiya Dk Green and Gunze Red Brown. The markings are for an SS panzer unit in Hungary in early Spring 1945. Yellow 923 which is unique being that normally, black, red or white unit numbers were more common. Started this project off and on since 2012. Just tinkered with it as a change of pace from planes. But finally finished it. Still need to get the weathering down though. Still fun to build German armor.
