Work on Panzerwerfer 42

I have made a start on a pair of Panzerwerfer 42 and an ammunition resupply vehicle for them.  The kits are Rode.

Roden kits and their contents

Assembly has not been as easy as I would have hoped.  I am looking forward to being able to get back to a resin Milicast or metal SHQ or MMS kit after this experience.  Progress has got this far when I tried to join the tracks (which is proving difficult and then put them over the running gear only to discover that the axles and mountings are no where near strong enough.

So, had to cut the bogies off the one that had been made and fashion some mounting blocks from plastic card so that I can use brass rods for the axles to give them extra strength.

Hopefully good progress will not be made......
