PANTHER 'D' DRUM CUPOLA & FIGURE

Is there anything in particular that you want? Ask for it here and see if anybody has what you're looking for.

Lads, doing an early Panther & need a drum style cupola. Was looking to make one, but if someone has another idea, I'd love to hear it !
Also, a 16th scale civilian figure......................prefer sitting, but anything will make do. Must be in civilian dress-not military if possible.Oh, and as much as possible not identifiable nationally so I can use him as a plain ole German towns person.
Cheers

This is the only one I know about, unfortunately. I've been looking to get a couple bits and pieces from Asiatam anyway, so I could grab it for you to save on postage.

Probably not what you are looking for, but I found these http://maplestreet.co.uk/lundby-scale-figures-pets-c-155_380_384.html It is a UK outlet, but it does give you a manufacturer.

That’s mighty nice of you Mr Ram.
My record with AT is terrible. Happy to have you get hold of it and combine postage,
Let me know how much your total is.
No hurry for it, which is lucky because it’s AT!!

Thanks Mr Surfer, a bit modern but good link. I will send them a message to see if there is anything hiding !
I guess it’s a reach to hope for a 40’s style European civilian but I have to try.

I actually found some German civilians who would have been perfect apart from the fact they were 1/35 scale.

I never thought to look there. I thought he only did military figures. If you want to see some of his work, my Nashorn crew is from the same source.

Not exactly a word of warning, but being shapeways, if they are anything like mine, they have a grainy finish. I treated mine to a thin coat of Vallejo plastic putty (the one that comes in the paint type bottles) to smooth out some of the more visible areas.

Wise advice Mr Surfer.................I'm a while off needing them, but best to be forewarned.
One will do what I need when the time comes.

I guess at some stage soon I will need to reveal what the project is.

Where the hell did he learn maths? In METH class?
Metric scale size :haha: :haha: :haha:

3/4" to the foot is 1:16th scale, not 16th and a bit, not 16th minus a bit, 16th in metric is still 16th, but a 1/16th is a fraction, and a part of an inch, therefore in metric it is 1.5875mm, gosh, our tanks are 1.5875 scale. . . .

Yeah, I noticed that, too, but then I saw 3/4 inch to the foot and know that's 1/16th scale. How did I know that? You can find a lot of good stuff by searching 3/4 scale dollhouse accessories. 8)

I've always found the hunt for good figures to be a lot of fun, and when I heard Imex carries "Trailer Trash Tina" I naturally had to have one. @) @)

The thing that worried me is that it says it's made of nylon. In my experience, pretty much nothing sticks well to nylon. I turned some fuel tanks for a ZTZ 99A from nylon and couldn't get any of my paints or primers to stick to them!

To be honest, that's what bothers me. You can mix glue in with paint of similar thinner composition, but still not something to handle much.

For a primer coat that is.

I wonder if a glue and primer or paint mix would be good for smoothing 3D printed parts? I still haven't tried the polyurethane technique but it's on the list.
