Inspired by some WWII photos in the internet, I decided to built Attack's Bergepanzer 38(t) in 1/72.

The model had been built mostly out of the box with some modifications: because of Attack's mediocre moulded tracks and running gear, I used the tracks, idler, sprocket wheel and return rollers of an UM kit. The original kit's road wheels looked fine, so I only narrowed them down on the bottom's backside to fit the UM track links.
I also replaced the Attack front MG with a more accurate one from UM, added some UM spare tracks on the fenders and a big metal tool box from CMK on the fender on the driver's side as seen on many Panzer 38(t), added a scratchbuilt horn and replaced the chunky Notek light with one from the spare box.
The figures are from the Preiser set "Panzerkommandanten 1939 - 1945".

Paint job has been done by brush using Revell enamels and Tamiya clear paint.
