Sd Kfz 164 Nashorn Hybrid kit

Sd Kfz 164 Nashorn : Hybrid kit .  



Majority of kit is AFV Club AF35164  , which in it self is a great kit of this long distance tank killer. Refinement was the added utilizing the Model Kasten sprockets and tracks , and 2 Voyager add- on kits . Dragon parts were cannibalized from their kit 6314 such as the periscope assembly , radios , and other small parts that had more detail.
