Sd.Kfz 7/1 (early) with Flakvierling

Work on the seats.

Trumpeter screwed the pooch when it came to doing the front seats of this vehicle.

Here's what they look like. Ugly as shit.

And what they are suppose to look like.

My Fixes: Copious amounts of filler, plastic card and epoxy putty.

The front seats had a sheet of wood underneath them.. I added this to the area and scratched my own battery box which I believe is suppose to be part of the actual vehicle. You can see the edge of it in the Maquette walk around of the 7/1 photo above. The kit parts are 2 exposed batteries. Don't think they would leave these open to the elements. Can you imagine a crew accidentally stepping on them in the pouring rain?

And the seats attached and the cab attached to the vehicle. I still have to add the hinges on the driver left side and middle of the seat.
