With the apparent full penetration shot forward as the reason for Sgt Chatenay's demise?

Yes, the PaK was extremely close, it was an urban combat situation. The picture nevertheless shows that the armor was of sufficient quality not to break up in slabs after 3 well grouped ATK rounds at close range.

Just purchased the Hobby Boss Vickers Medium Mkll**. No internals, but there is a upgrade for it.
Well, I just purchased a 1:1 scale set of ALICE webbing in black......some assembly required :)

The point what I didn’t make very well, I also got a Hobby Boss kit it’s got zilch inside. While the R35 comes with full interior, I’ve got to buy an upgrade kit.:censored:
I know how you feel, I had to buy some pouches to upgrade the ALICE belt and suspender set :)
 
anyway, back to the model in Question, the engine is complex and made of many tiny parts, the instructions are a bit basic in showing where these parts actually connect.

the suspension has to be built to be believed, the bogies are each made up from12 parts, yes 12 !, and four of those are pe parts that have to be bent precisely to the right dimensions to fit inside the bogie halves.

fiddley is the word here, taking regular breaks to make a cup of tea. Constantly adjusting until the top plates go on, and then there are four points of accurate contact that need to meet before the glue sets.

I made a mess of the first, but by the time I got to number four bogie I had perfected a routine order of assembly.
