Hello I am a 50 something Orthodontist. I have been building models since age 6, but took a 10 year break from 1992 through part of 2003. I have a loving wife and two kids. My other interest besides my family and models are; computers, cooking, snowshoeing and hiking.

Thanks Guys! The build is a kit bash of the New Connections VK36.01 Bergschlepper and the Panzerkampwagen VI mit 7.5cm Ausf B, with scratch built extras. A full build article will be available in issue 39 of Military Minatures in Review, as they supplied me with the kits. I Have updated the Feature page to include some interior shots. Sorry I should have added these at the start.

Excellent work on a very imortant vehicle. Without the Henschel VK3601, there would not have been the infamous Tiger I Ausf E we all know. Great job, John, and its really a breath of fresh air over all the everyday armor kits. Thanks for posting this Cheers !! Alpen

Excellent John. Good build up of dirt on the running gear, yet the detail is not completely hidden. Not easy to do at this scale. Where did Mr. Speer go? Was there not a figure with a long coat and an old tankers helmet posed beside this one?

Thanks Frank. Yes there are pic of the man infront of his ride, but I felt they detracted from the vehicle, so I didn't use those pics. There are some in my gallery if your interested.
