Hello everybody,

here are some pictures of the finished P-40 "Longtrack"-radar ("Bronja") in scale 1:35.

The mode is based on the AT-T ofTrumpeter, in combination with the conversion set of Panzershop for the P-40 including resin and a huge quantity of photo etched parts.

Additionally used the engine cooler set of Panzershop, photo etched parts of Voyager, brass pipes (Antenna), new engine of MiniArt, Antenna bases of Panzerart and metal tracks of Friul.

Further pipe works, handles and more was made of wire, different other details added scratch.

The finished model was published in magazine "Scale Military Model International" and"Model Military International"




















Cheers

Really excellent work sir. I'm currently working on a 1/25 paper and resin version of this that has the radar cabin interior and very complex antenna.

Then the smallest details at the Longtrack follow ...

That radar screen must of taken a bunch of hair pulling.
A wow build on this what appears to be a monster of a conversion.

@Gabor:
The area behind the window is only primed, not painted in the final color.
Adding the covers ot all the open hatches already now would be a bad idea ... damaging during the work.... not being able to paint under it.... ==> All these are mounted later of course.
Which pile rods do you mean?

Hello! The two circular windows on the cargo / muffler roof are not black, opaque, grayish white. In all ventilation openings, when left open, there must be a protective cover. All five of the pile rods /trakc/ are missing. Regards, Gábor.

Have eyed this kit since it's announcement. (Even considered trying to scratch build it before that!)

Wow! Well done! Will follow with great interest.
