My latest iterations with the model have been mostly targeted at the rear of the tank. I've done what I can to make sure that the essentials are in their places so that the model can be painted comfily and with ease.

More cool details
As a slightly confusing speciality the Dragon people offered a couple of pieces to the engine department, that might never get to be seen anywhere. But the pieces were there so of course I used them! That'll cause a bit of head-scratching while painting but that's a small price if it looks good.
|Who the hell sees these through small holes and the grille?|
The engine room's air vents got a couple of photo-etch grilles available, and I dropped them on eagerly. These puppies didn't cause swearing or annoyance, very much unlike the p-e parts of the 20FlaK38, but then again, they were just dropped on. Nothing needed to be bent, twisted or fought with.
The tools I mentioned earlier play an important part with the fighting compartment's outer sides. As you can see in the picture below, I didn't attach more than the bare essentials on the side. See that round-ish thing between those two racks in the middle? That's for the cable to be wrapped around. It's going to look good unless I break it in anger at a later point...
