General history 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/10.5_cm_leFH_16_Gesch%C3%BCtzwagen_Mk_VI_736_(e)

 

The myth of a modern motorized German army in 1940 is not entirely true.
Only elite panzer divisions had modern (tank) equipment ( some of which were actually just training vehicles). Their tactics were more daring and modern.

After the Blitzkrieg of 1940, Germany had a large amount of captured material at its disposal. All this went into the service of the German Whermacht.

 

A certain Alfred Becker had the idea of mounting his unit's howitzers on these light tanks. 
They served well on the Eastern Front and were the first fully self-propelled howitzer unit in the German Whermacht.


Alfred Becker's talents did not go unnoticed. Baucommando Becker (Build unit Becker) turned hopelessly outdated French vehicles and tanks into completely "new" German vehicles that made it quite difficult for the Allies in Normandy (1944)

Start building the two hulls. as always with short run kits a lot of flash and a lot of cleaning.

Isn't that similar to the chassis for a Universal or Bren Gun Carrier? It was also a light tank for the British? Interesting.

Neat : indeed     Armament  ammo tank  : none

No 

The main purpose of a carrier is to transport material (weapons) and people. In theory, people and equipment leave the carrier before entering combat
In a tank everyone remains "safe" inside the tank and takes part in the battle

seeing the post commenting that they look similar to a british tank made me recall an article I read.......I believe it was in the beginning of the KG 200 book.

   in the beginning of the war,  German armor was modified captured armor.......mostly British and Russian armor.  they didn't capture just aircraft ;)

Building the superstructure of both vehicles.

 

The ammo carrier (left) 

All parts fit  👍

20201121_170131.thumb.jpg.ec65a1f4a44ea0f3ad0d5b7c26d33742.jpg

Grrr ;)

20201121_185348.thumb.jpg.580ade605e0343a11b836ae579226849.jpg

Some cutting and sanding, and hairpins and glue 

20201121_194933.thumb.jpg.1878ac11b71af803bac0ac3ae81a74d5.jpg

The gun carrier : little space availeble for many things to place 

20201122_133925.thumb.jpg.e90f80bee445cf21c4a93dca06c1715f.jpg

 

Some extra parts for detail ( from Russian kv turret...)20201122_144747.thumb.jpg.bea38f1a73fdb048df3e9723ac4ecb01.jpg20201122_152453.thumb.jpg.5b74934d74e69e906e22fc295c9ec3b8.jpg

The instructions say to place the cannon first.
But I don't know if the parts of the superstructure will fit

20201122_140225.thumb.jpg.9fc420130ef3ce9b72087fed5cbf59f0.jpg20201122_152509.thumb.jpg.913955578bb38e1062567d971643f855.jpg

so i make the superstructure first and dry fit this on the chassis (Surprise, it fits from the first time )

20201122_154734.thumb.jpg.81b1dc17a2b304f8f2f33de67bc6cd45.jpg20201124_191211.thumb.jpg.592857a6f2fcc4802bff8838184e2f6b.jpg

And then the cannon doesn't go in anymore

20201124_195102.thumb.jpg.4d18ce436b5d78a8b2f015b0728da724.jpg

I will place the cannon first and then the superstructure. 

It's been a long time since I've built such a difficult kit like this one. But we'll get there.


Instruction riddles   :  Make part C and see where you put it an they sometimes forget to number part 5

Building the howitzer compartment.

 

Extra detail on the 4 seats

20201127_184501.thumb.jpg.3eb729caf13d9c49f7c68a21889369d3.jpg

New ammo (cleaning the ammo from the kit was more work) and some other extra's

20201130_151802.thumb.jpg.73e2a5b4a8beb22333a09c0856b85ac9.jpg

Drilling out the barrel 

I always do this with a knife like this. Just turn the blade until the correct diameter is reached. Ideal method in plastic
But, watch out for the fingers...

9 hours ago, popeye the sailor said:

Because this thing is so small, it is a lot of fitting, searching and measuring
That's why i build it this way :
First interior and the carriage of the howitzer
Then the structure
Then the barrel and the sight of the howitzer.
Then the extra armor around the barrel.
This will work (I hope ;))

Wheels and tracks.

 

After a few hours, all parts are cleaned and painted in the base color.

20201207_182632.thumb.jpg.a495b52a5e521642b3e6ae37bbe22ba6.jpg

Ready for assembling (the sprocket wheels have some of the teeth removed)

20201208_191112.thumb.jpg.c7a000b826c0ba912595a73c1034b0bd.jpg

Work in progress, this was very complicated and required a lot of cutting and trimming.

20201209_181547.thumb.jpg.61767d5ce10944c8c5c3054e8800623a.jpg

Wheels in place and tracks pre painted. 

In the meantime started work on the trailer.The origin of the modified trailer is French. It is normally pulled by a Renault UE and has 4 wheels and tracks. Why  there is now only 1 axle with 2 wheels underneath? who knows 

20201211_190438.thumb.jpg.cbf4793625e989f64c8d2433ace1d20a.jpg

350px-Renault-UE-Saumur.00048b3a.jpg   a Renault UE and trailer (wikipedia)

 

 

Track mounting. Started below, then around the sprocket wheel, then around the rear wheel. Cut to lenght en glue

all wheels and tracks in place, a time consuming work :Whew:.
From now on nothing can go wrong, I hope

really nice!  although the other one should be on it's tracks rather than on it's side :D  {I know....it's drying} ;)   catching up is fun with these little gems.

   your spare parts bin makes me think back to all the parts I had for cars,  when I was a kid at home.........I kept them in boxes under my bed.  Mom used to get mad because she couldn't clean  ;)

Smal update,  assemble the last parts before painting.

 

Building the trailer also had its own problems...

ready and tagged

The 2 vehicles are given an English number, so all vehicles of this chassis are together. The trailer has a French number, then I remember what the origin was

It has been a long time since I built such difficult models. If anyone ever buys a kit from Ace, don't start with these 2.
