Dan (YHR) pointed me toward the mato 2.0 gearboxes. They need a little work to get them to fit but so worth it

They're the Stug/pzr3 boxes.

The mounting plate needs narrowing and new mounts need fabricating, but its quite a straight-forward job

Perfect thanks for all your help, I will get a build thread going once I have a few more bits together. I am building an A4 so a little different, 3 piece nose, different engine deck, technically 6 or so inches longer (1:1 scale) but not worth extending at this scale.

Close more like this one, post '43. It will generally represent my dad's tank, 1st Hussars CDN, after D-day.
