1/15 scale L70

I was recently asked to biuld a model of a German L70 early version, the guy who wanted it already had the more usual later one and thought this would compliment it well. The chassis, wheels, track, axles, sprockets and idlers were obtained through a friend from a site on the internet. The lower hull was assembled more or less out of the box and at the final stage new front resin wheels were added and also new axle stops and return rollers, the rear plate was detailed and new upright exhausts from 5/16 and 1/4 tube, the engine deck was made from 30 th card and detailed with grills, hinges, bolts etc. The fighting compartment was from 60th card and the commanders hatch made to open, the large bulge behind the mantlet is from Das model clay and the manlet itself is a resin item, the barrel is the usual turned wood. The main skirt rail is from 1/8 tube and top brackets from 1/8 x 30 strip, the bottom ones are from 5/16 square tube fitted to 1/8 x 40 strip and the mesh from a gardening suppliers. The model was finished with a resin tool set added and painted in Humbrol sand with red/brown and green pattern
