To keep the inside of the tank clean I made some covers.

I had to use bushes because the gear box axles where slightly oversize not permitting the use of ball bearings.

Well done Like seeing the builds with home made parts, stronger spring are a nice touch :thumbup: . The Panthers i have could do with the front being stiffer to raise the front a little.

Wow, you really did some great work on that tank, Walter. Just one suggestion I might make, You said you Had to lose the smoker to find a place for the mfu, Did you think about turning the mfu 90° and mounting it to the side wall? I found that was the only way to get an IBU2 into a stug 3, but it worked out very well.
