Feel free to discuss anything and everything to do with tanking here!

Postby Rob'59 » Fri Aug 31, 2018 6:43 pm

For now I am done with my Panther-F.
Next will be my Ausf.G
On this one also some Schurzen will be added, and as I am making it a Panther Befehlswagen, a 2m antenna and a star antenna will be on it too.
This is my Panther G

In fact this is supposed to be Michael Wittman.
But I do not care much for that, just liked the way the figure is and he fits my Panther very well.
The figure is from Torro, €19.95 and bought it from Dom's site.

Two antennas and 1 fug8 star antenna are for my Ostfront Tiger 1 Befehlswagen.
The other parts are meant to become onto my Panther-G :D

Today I started with the Schürzen on the Ausf. G

Measured the length on the hull and made the Schürzen fit to that size with some overlapping

Bent some plate holders which have to be adjusted once attached to the Panther, with the Schürzen on it too

Like on my Ausf. F, I had to make some clearance between the Schürzen and the hull. The tracks have some play on the idler wheels, so when turning the tank they move a bit outwards and might throw off the rear Schürzen.
So I taped pieces of electricity wire onto the back of the Schurzen. They were just the right thickness to give the extra room between tracks and Schurzen.

I taped everything together while gluing it all to the hull.
After a few minutes it all could be taken off.

Next I have to align the Schürzen a bit by bending some of the holders or even drill out some holes slightly larger.
Tomorrow it is supposed to become 25°C here so if there is some spare time, I will spray the Schürzen in the red anti rust primer.....the damn things are aluminum anyway... :haha: :haha: :haha:

The holders have to be cut into an appropriate length too when everything fits and is aligned the way I had in mind.
Brackets and holders will be painted in the matching camo colours on the hull too.

Just looked at my decal set.
Have no clue where it all is supposed to be on the Panther. I did expect a drawing which would have pointed out the spots where to put the decals.
I know, the numbers 003 go onto the turret :D
Both small Balkenkreuzen go on each side of the hull in front of the tools.
Where comes the bigger Balkenkreuz, if I will use it anyway.
One decal must be for the fire extinguisher, I think the yellow one with the text written on it.
But that green leave thing with the red N and the white panther jumping through it, where must that one go on my Panzer?
Front hull, driver's side perhaps?
