Report from the construction of Panzerwagen Ratte

The vehicle is available:

For construction, I used a photo cardboard 220g / m2, matte. Printed in ink.
I start the construction with the chassis. First caterpillars. First, I made, I glued together the layered elements. Routing folds.

The long bends are best at the edge of the mat.

I glue the rifle with glue stick and this thick element is pressed with a rubber roller.

Additional flaps is glued to the cut and formed tracks. The tracks are glued together.

Fenders are glued. I gently cut the outer edge to make it smooth.

Fendes glued to catepillars.

I glued the chassis box. Drying under load.

Then I put the chassis together.

I cut and glue the tower fastening.

Then I mold and glue the body.

After gluing together a few pics, I look: I forgot to cut a hole to fasten the tower in the body. But it was possible to cut the hole without damaging the body.

I glue the tower attachment. Dry under pressure. Then I glue the rest of the body.

I glued the body to the chassis.

Tower element and tower. Tower is glued PVA glue on stick.

Panzerwagen with prototypes.

Finally, a quick test of the vehicle.
