Sd.Kfz.184 Ferdinand (1/72)
There are some pictures of the Sd.Kfz.184 that have fascinated me for a long time and it was time to implement them.
I actually wanted to make an Elefant and not a Ferdinand, because that would have been correct for the idea.
However, the kit did not allow this, so things turned out differently.
However, I think this setting suits many of the heavy tanks that like to burrow into soft ground.
To the kit(Dragon 7515):
This was partly in rather poor quality.
All parts that are necessary for the Elefant were simply unusable.
Luckily the set also included all the parts for the Ferdinand, so I decided to build it.
On the other hand, the engine deck is wrong.
At the time I wanted a quick build and left it that way.
The assembly was not without problems.
In my case not the best kit from Dragon.
I also used an aluminum barrel from Aber (72L-05) and cables from Eureka (ER-7209).
The miniatures are offered by CMK (72228) and Mantis (72002).
