Project ’46 1/35th SdKfz350/3 3cm M.K. 103 Zwilling FSV – 2

Made a start on the FSV/Hummel conversion tonight in anticipation of the tracks arriving early next week. Just a pretty straight forward assembly of the running gear. Left the drivers hatch open in anticapation of fitting the IR gear to it and having the open hatch provide an extemporised rain shield. Fitted a bulkhead inside to seal off the driving compartment and painted it black as a compromise as I’m not fitting a driver or r/op figure. The turret’s (obviously) just sat there for show and to make sure the Kugelblitz ball doesn’t foul the kits interior bulkhead in it’s approximate final location. Can’t wait for the tracks to get here, they’re metal Ostketten from Spade-Ace Models, a bit of a gamble as we couldn’t get Fruils ….
