This is a fairly simple scratch conversion that would be ideal as a first scratchbuilt project. The hull requires only detail changes apart from the drivers hatch, the turret has a simple slab sided shape and the tracks can be made from Academy's PzKwIV individual link set. This is not a step by step guide, it is up to the individual modeller to use the materials and techniques he is most comfortable with, and I do not feel qualified to tell people how they should do things. What I hope this article will do is to illustrate my budget approach to scratchbuilding using the cheapest and/or most easily obtained materials, simplest techniques and basic hand tools.
