This is another stalled project that I'm tidying up before re-commencing work on it. The base kit is the Revell 1 A5 (new mould) with the turret replaced by a Peddinghaus 1 A1A1 turret. I'm going to take the B&V armour from the 1 A5, add it to a spare Revell 1 A1 that I have and make a 1 A1A4. The PZB will a Meng one from the spares box.
I like the detail of the Peddinghaus turret. It looks like it was made to replace the turret on the old model Revell/Italleri cast turret. So it corrects the inaccurate commanders cupola which has insufficient episcopes around the hatch. So lots of fun in the near future...
