The rubber was glued on the wheel…

I could make a pic of destroyed SdKfz rubber… if I had time.

I have started from the beginning so at the moment most of it will be old pictures.

Thanks Schlang, I am. The project is quite advanced now, I am just re-engineering some springs for the suspension and hopefully early next week I will get the steering box in. To see the progress up to date visit:

I am sorry that I don't post directly on here but you all know the problems. youtube is a long way behind but I am trying to catch up, episode 4 was uploaded last night.

Regards,

Jon

Morning All,

This project is moving along slowly, the springs have all been made and the chassis is on 4 wheels, although they have not yet had their tyres moulded on. Lately I have been concentrating on the engine bay and cooling system. Yesterday the engine at last burst into life but to my mind the exhaust note sounds too quite, although saying that I have never heard a Panzer II engine running. I have found some final drives that should work but I need to connect to the steering box, which is my next job.

loads of pictures to be found here:

Thanks Lou. I would like to post updates directly on here but I don't believe in rewarding children for bad behaviour and I am damn sure that I am not going to reward the owner of this site.
