Olaf, thanks for your reply. So you're using a regular soldering iron, no soldering torch? Again, very nice and especially clean work.

I just downloaded Google Sketch Up and I'm already having a feeling that this program is going to be one of my favorites. Of course there're some difficulties upon first time using it, but I guess it will become easier. The biggest problem is my little laptop screen, though. The resolution is quite okay (1680x1050) but one can never have enough room for the tool bars in such programs

Peter, I'll check out the tutorial videos. Right now I'm searching for an easier way to create tubes and most importantly, how to bend them.


Oh and one more question on the Panther, Olaf: Do you plan to add texture on the armor plates?


Johannes

Panther

Peter: thank you for your kind words

Johannes: No torch ... just a regular soldering iron. But I cleaned up the soldered parts with my proxxon. Thatīs why it looks clean.

Sketchup can be addictive. I hope this does not cost too much of your precious time. I want to see color on your great Ferdinand
Making tubes is easy. See the tutorial to the "follow me"-tool

Yes, there will be some texture on hull and turret with brushed/spotted on plastic-glue. But I will try it on the turret first.

thanks and regards
Olaf

It's really giving me a run for my time - oughta be doing something verrrrry difficult. However, I'm really amazed by this software.

Check this out, here's a first sketch of the reworked Elefant driver's compartment wall (the measures aren't correct yet, as I've drawn it without having my references at the ready).



Alright, that's it - I don't want to hijack Olaf's build log.

Johannes

Tamiya Panther G late

... not much progress in the moment.

Managed to get the aerial stowage done.

Used some brass-tube from my local hobby-shop and ABER parts. I did not manage to solder the lid .... so I had to take the Tamiya-parts.

Furthermore, I removed the socket of the Bosch-light from the plastic fender, trimmed it and glued it to the etched fender.

here are the pics for today





More to come ....

Tamiya Panther G (late version) 1/35

Didnīt do much on this build in the last month but finally I'm ready to prime hull and turret (this will happen today)
Therefore I would like to share the build-progress (so far) with you.
I do not try to build a specific vehicle here but this tank could have fought in the Ruhrpocket in April 1945 (like the famous Krefeld-Panther).... I was born in this area 23 years after the battle ... thatīs why Iīm interested.
So ...pictures
*
I tried to add texture to turret and mantlet by adding some tamiya extra thin cement



*
did some welds and added the lifting bolts (??) on the mantlet





*
camouflage-loops (yes .... a feature that is debatable )





*
an some final views .... before priming





*
Thank you for your attention ... more progress to come
Olaf
