After half an hours rest....it's time to start the next big project!
Since my first model from Draf was IMHO 100% perfectly designed, I just had to make the next model from Rafal as well!
This time the LeFh 18/40 (leichte Feldhaubitze 18/40) kal.105mm
I will start with the wheels.
Here is the drawing.
