Response to Elefant of 2.Pz.Jg.Kp.614 in Berlin May 45 - Progress Pics

 
Added a few missing touches over the weekend so calling the build on this one done now I think, unless someone spots any obvious misses?

I want to depict it as abandoned after firing off its last rounds and the crew then taking the MG and gun sight and legging it. The advancing Russian IS-2s have then either had some target practice or loosed off a few rounds to check if anyone was home as they got closer. Now after the dust has settled a few drunk Russians are souvenir hunting and getting some happy snaps taken.

So final tweaks added include the five 122mm penetrations done with a 1.5mm bit in a motor tool, a Eureka tow cable with Nordland resin eyes, 2 Nordland C-Hooks, the lifting handles on the engine grills bent up out of an old p-e frame, Fruili spare links on nose as well as an empty bracket next to it, and some small arms spall on the hull sides;
