Klaus built the kit from Meng, with the following modifications: Exhaust grilles, main gun, mantlet plugs and chains and smoke launchers chains from Leopard Workshop, Antennas from Orange Hobby, Crew from Valkyrie Miniatures, Small sports bag on basket from Black Dog, and lights in colored photoetch from Voyager Klaus also made his own tow cables and Hoffmann device cable, replaced all handles and rear view mirror support with wire, added a Green Stuff tarp and a stowed camo net made from gauze. For paint he used K4 acrylics for NATO colors, AK Interactive and Vallejo acrylics for details. Weathering was accomplished with artists oils, AK Interactive enamel products, K4 and Ammo of Mig pigments.
