sdkfz 164 Nashorn

Hello men
With the release of the Pak 43 from Armortek, I had an idea that should not get out of my head.
I have to have a rhinoceros in 1/6I bought a rhinoceros from FOA. This serves to measure. The rhino is a really great kit from FOA. but there will be some improvements, as the first I have built a new vehicle bucket from 2mm steel.the Pak 43 is also a very nice model of the company FOA. but I want to use the cannon as in real. That's why I decided to buy the PAK from Armortek. unfortunately the PAK is very poorly detailed I will resort to sharing on FOA.

Re: sdkfz 164 Nashorn

This will be a great project. The Nashorn is a great subject. The Armortek kit is lacking some finer details, but will make a great base for adding new features. Following with interest.

Re: sdkfz 164 Nashorn

Heiko you never cease to amaze me! Looking forward to your master build of the Nashorn in 1/6 scale. I will take the compliment that you will use parts of the resin FOA Pak43 to detail your Armortek gun!

FOA just finished the Hummel sFH-18 gun in 3D print. It is an amazing beast on that chassis as well

I know the sFH-18 gun I need from you too. when you have finished, please let me know. because the chassis of the sFH-18 is the same as the PAK 43. and I will assemble your sFH-18 with the chassis armortek. to own a heavy field howitzer 18 please let me know if it is available in your shop.

Re: sdkfz 164 Nashorn

Hi Männer

ich habe die Tage angefangen Deko Laufrollen und Laufrollen Gummis zu Gießen, bis ich alle zusammen habe wird es ein paar wochen Dauern.
die Gleitbleche unter den Laufwägen sind aus 3D druck nach Armortek maße gezeichnet

Re: sdkfz 164 Nashorn

it continues in small steps. where it was particularly difficult for me was the recording and storage and the associated suffering wheel.
but this problem is also solved. next, a stable tube support had to be built that the heavy Armortek gun can also withstand.

Hello men
I don't want to hide my progress from you either.
in the meantime i have all my running rubbers poured, now all i have to do is pour and use my star for the rollers, which i have poured from my armor IV armored car.
because the star pattern from Armortek would have been priceless.
I have already continued to work on the superstructures, the chassis will soon be finished. I have largely built the Leidrad chain tensioner based on the original.

Re: sdkfz 164 Nashorn

Hi men

Back to the construction report. The rhinoceros is now on its own chains. and runs flawlessly it is so powerful that you can ride it yourself.
the Fahrwek stands.
now it goes on to 10,000 small details that I have to recreate

Wow. The detailing on this. I think the Armortek kit is by far superior to the FOA version. Great job so far

Re: sdkfz 164 Nashorn

Hello Heiko,
Your Rhino is looking awesome, one of my favorite tank killers. You have made great improvement on Spearhead chassis. Great details so far.


I saw on Armortek forum you wish to trade PZ II Luch from Metalbox. Do you not like the Luch? I have one as well, I like it overall, although electronics are garbage. Just curious your thoughts on the model.


Best regards,
Bob

Awesome display of modeling skills. I enjoy very much seeing how this build has progressed. The seeing of how parts are built that add to the complete detailed build.
