Fantastic model, I just went to print the wheels and realised there doesn't appear to be a mating connection for the hull and just a weird slice? Do i presume these are meant to just be glued onto the stubs on the hull and the slice is just an unintentional artefact?

Thanks for the quick response earlier. Any chance you can do the other variants of this? the one with the short 75 in particular?

Yea, I'd love to! Keep in mind this will take a little more time than a quick response. :)

Hello, where exactly does the "roof" go?

Thats armor plating that wasn't on every model of the 234/4. But after you assemble the whole hull and before you set the PAK 40 into the chassis the "roof" should fit right on top of the drivers compartment, in front of a part of the gun shield, if you still need some help just message me on here. :)

FYI, the Sdkfz 234/3 was known as the Puma, not the 234/4.

The 234 chassis is actually what we identify as the Puma. This model for example is identified as a "Pakwagen" with a 75mm PAK 40, while the 234/3 (as you say) was actually identified as the "Stummel" with a 75mm K51. You are referring to what civilians refer to as the "Puma" which is a post war name for the vehicle Sdkfz 234/2 with a 50mm gun mounted to the turret made for the Leopard Panzer. This turret on the 234/2 along with the whole of the 234/1 resembles other Aufklärungspanzer Sonderkraftfahrzeuge, during the war neither of these vehicles were called "The Puma". It is acceptable to call anything that uses the Sdk.Fz. 234 chassis system a "Puma".
FYI :)
