New DML Ostwind First Look

Here are a few photos of the new DML Ostwind kit which will be unveiled at the hobby show in Shizuoka. The design is based on the information in the new Panzer Tracts 12-1 and assumes that the vehicles assembled by Stahlindustrie were standard late production Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.J chassis.









I just received the photo etch mesh for the spent shell basket and haven't had a chance to install them yet.

All comments are welcome.

Regards,

Tom

great news, Tom.
Did you drill flash suppressor or was it molded with holes?

I have a question, the part to cover the transmision is your election? because the J model came with a different part. Look this image and compare with your model:


cheers.

Roman,

I have added a photo of the flash suppressor. It is moulded with the holes in it but since it is moulded from three sides, the holes are slightly oblique to the surface and so I tweaked them with a drill bit, but they are moulded all the way through.

Regards,

Tom

Zeke,

The chassis used to produce the Ostwind were delivered in late 1944 and early 1945 before the grab handles were added to the Pz.Kpfw.IV hatches.

How about a nice Russian BT-5? How about a British Valentine, etc?

I spend several months on doing smth close to images from lousy trumpeter kit.

Now I am glad to see Dragon releasing up-to-date quality kit with production turret. And it is not just "another PzIII(IV) variant".
