The first plastic on stick:





Idler wheels, a transformation of surplus wheels Panzer I, are the diameter of the Vickers ...



The key pieces, I'll have to copy in order to achieve the suspension arm ...



The town is taking shape, bonding the first rivets and armed grid







For now come up here ...

Good Job.

I am doing the same project but I am using a lazy approach. I will build it base on the Vickers Amphibious Tank. The turret is there. The wheels and tracks are there. I only need to build the hull.

Thanks for the feedback
Cams saw model, one model brings the same type of turret this model, but care that not all sold turrets of this model were the same, like the suspension, had an elastic system and other springs. If you use the amphibious model, this has to be the European colonial, the Chinese version is similar but different.
There are new developments in the turret ...

More advances in the model, some complications with the suspension hopefully resolve soon. For now the tractor and idler wheels were placed, I hope you like.

Ah, Modelkasten, thought so.

Ta, much!

Can I Ask why you didn't use the Universal Carrier wheels for the rear idler? Were the idlers that much different than the UC road wheels? When I scratchbuilt a Mk II Light Tank years ago the drawings I had seemed to show the idler was the same as a normal road wheel. Was it different for this vehicle? (Of course, I could have been wrong those years ago as well.)

Hi Paul

The reality is that I had two more wheels panzer I, so I used those instead of copying the Bren Carrier, there is no scientific explanation , ha ha ...

Hi
The last step, to end assembly, I put all accessories, I use any different materials, like plastic, some rest of photo etch, resin copy, and copper wire and iron wire...
