Sdkfz 234/4 Italeri 234/3+TamiyaPak40

I had an old Italeri box still in lire…


and I decided to follow the older project: convert in /4 with Tamiya Pak 40

There’s some very clever work here. Love the opened louvres!

We can see that the concentration of scratches are effective points where most model builders would focus their attention.
I should learn your one with respectful!

found the correct position of side ammo box is really critical (probably I spent 6 or 7 nights to find the final position.)



I prepare the artillery

Amazing work, indeed. The way you have done the louvres is wonderful, they are perfectly aligned and evenly spaced. Interior is equally impressive, congratulations.

I used the Pak 40 in a diorama.
looks interesting- I can’t wait to see where this is headed!
Cheers!

Very nice tight improvement work there.

As a few others have mentioned, the whole effort looks very very nicely done but those louvres really show some thought out detailing. Nice plan and cleverly done :+1:




I testing my moulded wheels before painting… the third is my master

Very nice detail work!

Cool! Nice touch with the tires. I read they had a lot of problems with tires going flat often on these things.

I’m with you, not sure about the paint job. It’s well done but a bit dark for my taste. However, judging by your previous work you no doubt pull this off and it will be a winner before all is said and done.





final cut

I think it turned out pretty nice. The camo could be weathered a bit if your intentions are to tone it down some. Are you depicting a vehicle from a specific theatre ( Russian, Italy etc)?
Will this go into a diorama or vignette?

Cheers,

the photos are not the best
however I preferred to keep vivid colors because these vehicles were used to defend Germany and had a short operational time. My idea was to present armor assembled and commissioned quickly
for the same reason I have not fitted the spare wheel.
for the MG81Z anti-aircraft weapon I had to do a great research but this is also a sign that the allied air action was unchallenged

as usual I will put the model on a simple wooden base
