This conversion is based on the only known photo of a one-of-a-kind field modification. I also used other reference pictures from the book "Panzerkampfwagen 38(t)", by David V. Nielsen, published by Zimmerit Press, 1999 to help guide me with a mounting system and wiring for natural gas tanks (as mounted on a Marder 38(t) Ausf M) on page 33.
The cabin, natural gas tanks (mounts and wiring) and administrative numbers plates are all scratch-built.

A one-off photo circulating on the net of this one-off German training panzer from circa: NOV 1943.
