Basic work on the Lower Hull

1. Removed the legal mark on the inside of Lower Hull...
2. Filled the ten recess ribs on the sides of Lower Hull...

OH OH there is the first sign of trouble...

Not sure why you want to take the time and effort to fit Dragon's interior into another manufacturers kit- Particularly because you really won't be able to see any of the interior anyways..I hope for your sake it fits and you don't have to waste to much "modelling energy" on the task.

BTW here is a shot of my Tamiya Panzer II with a coat of cammo.

Hi James,

The reasons are:-

1. I have both DML's PzII Ausf C & F...I don't like to duplicated the sameas interior onto the DML's PzII C and I like the early Tamyia version.

2. I'm not agreed with you...at least you can see this from the opened large Turret Hatches...and paint the floor in light Off White color instead of Panzer Grey.



3. There required a few work to fit the DML's interior into the Tamiya...actually it fits quite well

Worked on the Suspension Units

Tamyia made the Suspension and the Roller in one piece molding. For easy to clean up the part lines, I cutted off the Roller and detailed up with some Brass Plate, Rod and Styrene Hex Rod...



Also re-made the Roller by Styrene Rods and glue it in position...



Filled and sanded the two inner side panels by putty...



Here are the completed shots...

Super job- can I ask the size of the plastic tube/rod that was used for the cylindrical spring bumper?
