Latest off my workbench is this Tamiya Wespe. It is the 1996 boxing which I added some improved parts from the 2018 re-release to the fighting compartment, in addition to may own scratch-built part. The driver's compartment was basically empty in the original kit. I used parts from Dragon Panzer II, including a gear box and transmission and floor, to form the basis on which I added my own scratch-built parts. The recent Nuts & Bolts volume on Wespe is my main reference. Nanond
This was a enjoyable build. I used oils for the first time on this, for the whitewash streaks, and for the wooden box/tools (And some grime streaks), and I found them to be useful, so will most likely purchase a few more shades to use on my next model. As for the weathering, I am not 100% on it, however, I doubt I will ever be 100% on any model I make. The figures provided by Tamiya, were, in my opinion, quite good, with facial detail that lended itself well to my novice figure-painting skills.
