You scratchbuilt the whole vehicle? Amazing!  :o

The stering wheel and the headligths are from the Rubicon's M3/M3A1 kit. The gun is from Great Scspe Games. The rest is from scratch.

I'm with the others - a nice bit of scratch building.

This is one impressive scratch build. And amazing that you went the long way. I am currently thinking about the Diana as well, but most likely going to use the Sd.Kfz. 7 kit as a starting point und just scratch build the cabin.

My initial plan was making the cabin and wait until the Sdkfz 6 being available from  Blitzkrieg Miniatures (or another company). But a friend told me "you can do all by yoursellf'.

Done. Tomorrow with more light I'll post better photos.

When the isolation finished (or the shops can ships postal orders), I will add a Perry's crew.

Stunning scratch building. I'm honestly surprised you consider the wheels to be beyond you when you've done just a bang up job on the rest of the build.

Straight lines are easy to do in styrene with a sharp knife and a metalic ruler. But circles are more complicated. And finally I bought a punch tools kit to do small circles. The rest is only patience.
