You guessed right Bish, Dragon. It is an "initial production" version so I'm doing my research to make sure I use the correct option for drive/idler sprockets and transmission covers. I'm excited as it's my first Hummel.

DML famously led many modelers astray with their Hummel and Nashorn kits by poor directions regarding the placement of a jig-template on the lower sides of the fighting compartment. DML meant for the builder to use the temporary jig only for correct placement of the internal gun travel lock. Instead many people glued the pieces in. (Many magazine articles at that time had the error too!). Make sure you’re aware of the possible instructions error. Their newest kits have corrected the error.

 

DONT GLUE THOSE PIECES!

Great heads up T26E4, I will pay close attention to that point. I can't guarantee I won't make a mistake however knowing is half the battle. Gonna try to have more WIP pics this weekend. I try to maximize the subassemblies construction while I'm away from home and show work when I get home. Thanks again.
