Hi not questioning your modelling ability,but im disappointed about this build review,thought the idea was to compare this with the tamiya offering,just can't understand why you built this kit this way,have read the full text,just don't have a clue why you chose the way you built it,rather bizzare.
kindest regards Allan

Hi, Allan. Thank for questioning.
Here a few answers. The color scheme is common for both period and vehicle: panzergrau. The interior is painted according to instructions. The lack of rockets is explained in text; besides, the most of the period pictures show the empty frames rather than fully equiped vehicle. I found only two with the rockets being actually fired.
I choose to let the doors open to emphasize the interior detail and with my future diorama in mind.
All the options are suggested by manufacturer.
Better than that I'm affraid I can't explain.
Of course you can question my modeling abilities - I am far from perfection.
Thanks for posting,
Gabriel.
