Most impressive! I wonder how one could get that to sit properly with some weight in the nose. She does seem a mite tail heavy.

Nice to see progress on this seldomly modelled bird. How are you going to display it?

Looks like you'll have to hang it from the ceiling! I'm looking forward to more pics.

Find a white metal Panzerjager Marder to put in there...

That is looking more and more impressive! Nice work on that. Carlos, good idea with a white metal Marder. However; if I were ever to build this, I'd most likely build it with the nose closed so I'd add a second floor on the bottom to cover whatever weights I added to the front of this. Still, I doubt mine would turn out this good. Looking forward to seeing more.
