Kettenwagen- Hood.

Work started on the hood.
Even though the hood will be folded i didnt like the look of the kit part at all.
I decided on making the hood frame workable.
It is really tricky part of the build. I use the stretched sprue to connect the bits, and then blob the ends with hot knife.

In addition to Aber PE two frames need to be scratch built to complete the roof. Unfortunately Aber doesnt give any dimentions of missing frames, so it is down to model builder to design the frames himself. After 2 days of trial and error i have scratched the missing frames, and to my surprise the roof works.
