Thank you, Sergio. I realized after I posted the thread that I had forgotten to mount the headlights. I added them this morning, and also touched up sloppy edge coloring on the machine gun mount, so here's one more photo.

Really good work on this Half-Track!

Actually, your recent D-Day models have inspired me to build some small-scale military vehicles too.

Thank you Derek and Kacper. To inspire another modeler is a complement of the highest order, and I look forward to seeing photos of your small scale armor builds. Your post reminded me that I never put up any photos of my final D-Day model for the recent USAHEC event: the iconic LCVP (landing craft, vehicle, personnel).

I chose this Paper Tiger Armaments kit because it had fewer pieces than the PTA Stuart tank, and I thought it would be an easier, quicker build. It turned out to be quite challenging. The instructions warn the builder several times to be very careful when assembling the kit to avoid warping the hull. I thought I was being very careful, but I wound up with a significant warp nonetheless. My solution was to glue the model to a foam core base, which disguised the defect pretty well, but the strain on the foam core caused IT to warp. Luckily, the models were displayed on black tablecloths, so the cast shadow from the twisted base was invisible, and the whole thing appeared straight as a string to the casual viewer.

I did a little Photoshop work on this kit as well, although it really didn't need much gussying up.
