Ersatz M10 progress . . .
Managed recently to make a little progress on the 1/72nd Dragon/Overby Ersatz M10. It’s now been primed and waiting on a decision as to which colour green to paint it. While it’s often reported they were painted with stocks of captured US Olive Drab personally I think that was a little unlikely as the captured vehicles required by Panzer Brigade 150 couldn’t be forwarded or made ready in time it’s unlikely the supply of paint would get much priority.
Anyway I’ve added a little detail to the front drives and radio operator hatches and fitted the deck screens in place (using the Excellent Voyager set). I have a little more research to do on the locking mechanism for the inside of the open TC hatches yet and will definitely add some sort of gizmology. In time (after most of the painting is completed) it’ll get the bow MG added, front headlight and cable, aerials, tow cable and a suitable German/US command figure.
