I hope to get some more done tomorrow. I have the trailer almost done. Finding lots of things that are taking the shine off of this kit. The instructions for the trailer are very bad with wrong sprues but there is an addendum. Thats no problem except I'm finding part numbers are totally wrong. I thought I was missing stuff so I looked even deeper for info on the kit and I am not losing it. Whole assemblies just appear on the trailer without build instructions or parts. Its pretty easy though so not hard to figure out. I have been reading a couple of posts and the wheels are total fantasy so you are better off getting AM wheels for this kit. I am going to have to do some scratch building it seems as no ladders at the back of the truck bed are in the kit. Shouldn't be to hard I hope. Also the tow pintle is fantasy. I can either rob one from a half track kit or try and scratch one. We'll see where that goes. Its annoying that some detail is just glossed over. There is a handle on the tow bracket which should have been in 2 or 3 pieces so it would look better. I wont try fixing it. There are other issues but I am either too far along to fix or don't feel confident in fixing. Pics to come.

The more I build this kit the more disappointed I get. The trailer instructions have the wrong sprue labels but they give an addendum with corrections. No probs. But half the assembly sequence is missing. You turn a page and poof there is a drawing with parts you never saw . Really not cool.
Anyways as I step off my soap box I did some more on the trailer today. I found a board that this should fit on and taped the road pieces I have to it. Need another road kit.
So pics of so far.

Not a lot of time to work this past week because life.
Wheels ready to be weathered. The trailer and truck had a bit more work. Annoyed with the kit instructions, or rather lack of instructions. Did some more of the Pz II Ds. Developing a dislike of Bronco with the itsy bitsy parts and the way they use 10 small parts to make what other companies would do with 2 or 3. But its coming so pleased that there is progress.

My figures arrived today along with some Aber barrels so hopefully can get the turrets started this week.
Gary, these will be fairly pristine tanks as they are just going to the battle. So it will be lite weathering if I can pull that off.
