Panzer IIIN with Winterketten

Getting close to finishing this kit off. I just completed the turret and will next add the winterketten themselves. I also completed a few other things on the hull such as adding the securing strap on the jack box and brass chain to the towing pins on the rear. The securing strap was made from lead foil and the buckles and hooks came from the Aber buckles set. I also added the electrical conduit between the Notek lamp and hull headlight. Here I used thin soldering wire. The securing bracket for the conduit was again made with lead foil. The coax MG is from RB model. The rear right mudguard was posed in the retracted position and the axe on the right side was left off in order to give it a bit of a "in the field" look. I still have to add the fire extinguisher on the rear left side as well as the spare road wheels but will do that last along with the stowage I am doing for it.

Be sure to check out the rest of the build over on track link.
