Trumpeter 1/35th Scale German Sd Kfz8 db10 Gepanzerte 12t

Construction Steps 5-7

In step 5, it was the assembly of the front axle and suspension,this went together nicely. 

In Step 6 the front suspension assembly was installed to the chassis.I had to sand the ends down a little so it would fit nice and snug. Next was the gearbox and steering assembly,which was no problem.

Step 7 involves the construction of the the rear chassis plate which has the large inside tow hitch housing as well as the outer standard half-track tow hitch. I found it much easier to put parts A12 and A13 in after the plate and housing was on. Next was the road wheels,idler wheels and outer front drive sprocket. There is a lot of play with the idler wheels on the torsion bar suspension. Otherwise these steps were pretty straightforward. However there are a lot of small,thin,fragile parts that can be damaged when installing these subassemblies
