Guys,I think the reason it just doesn't fly is
because it's too smooth and fits like a glove.

If you can't make it look like it was ripped off
a chicken yard fence and rapped around the
barrel,it has to go.

Update...

So now that the turret is complete, at least for now until I decided about that controversial chicken wire, it's on to the hull..... As I said when I started this post, I did have a small head start. The zimmerit has already been applied so I'm starting on the details. I am beginning my work on the left side and have completed the front left hull details and the cleaning rod. This is my first experience with the early panther pe and those pin assemblies are a pain. On the G's I've built, I used hollowed out plastic rod instead of the brass so that I didn't have to bend the circles and deal with the joints. Not much choice with the flat pins on this one. I happen to have a punch in my punch kit that is almost perfect in size to bend around so it wasn't so bad. Just bend em and drop on a little ca, sand and it's good to go. The pins are still a pain but it's doable. Anyway, here's the result. I will be out of town for a few days so I'm going to take the trax with me and go ahead and deal with those. When I get back I'll finish up this side and go work on the other. Still not sure about the chicken wire but I'm putting off that discussion until I complete the build and then we can all take a look at the finished product and weigh in again with our thoughts...... By the by, I'm sure you've seen them, but there are two panthers in the ML galleries with this on the barrels. Both are G's but James Blackwell and Xavier Lena have done this if you want to see what it would look like in paint.

Update.....

That is a nice pic, I have a few with the wire in my pc collection. Always nice to see others. Ok, so I have been away for a while. Took my friuls with me and got that out of the way. I have since completed the left side hull fittings with the exception of the shurtzen mounts which I will tackle all at once. I have also completed the the front right side fittings as you can see in the pics. Going to tackle the rest of the right side next and then I'll flip a coin between the front and rear and get rolling on this. Question for you guys that have used the moskit exhausts.... I can't find any pics of these online and can't figure out for sure which one I would need for this tank. The kit part has a large cut out for the oversized kit support piece and I would prefer to fix this the easy way and just replace the whole thing pipes and all. Anyone know which one I need? Also, I will be needing a good pic or drawing of the driver's vision port in the open position if anyone has one handy.

Update

Well I got a little bit of work done today. The right side fittings are pretty much finished. I did go ahead and order the moskit exhaust so I'll probably move on to finish up the front or the top of the hull next. I also wanted to show you guys my new work table top. My wife bought a map of the german invasion fronts and had a piece of glass cut for my table top to cover it. Nice to have a wife that would do something like that! Anyway, it's pretty cool, helps get you in the mood to work. So anyway, here's where I stand on my Panther A at the moment. Comments always welcome.
