Sd.Kfz.184 Ferdinand, Russia 1943 (1/72)

A "Ferdinand" in Russia- Eastern Front 1943.
The idea is based on two original pictures which gave me the inspiration.
I used the kit of ().
The actual idea was to represent the "", but this kit has some strong quality problems (in my case) and had to replace all elephant parts with those of the "Ferdinand".
Fortunately, all the necessary parts were included, but although the "Ferdinand" parts had their problems.
For better detailing, a gun barrel from () and a cable set from Eureka () were used.

This one is also one of my early works in 1/72 scale and after a corruption I decided to give him a small update.

Based on the original pictures I used a accessories set from () and changed the crew┬┤s arrangement a bit.
The figures are from CMK (, ).

The painting on the vehicle has also been refined and the tankers have been given a completely new coat of paint.
