Keep up the good work

Some nice work Michal, that's my favorite area of an AFV keep it coming. What did you use for the rivet/screw/bolt detail on the jack body? Regards Phil.

Hi Michal,

I enjoy your build and there is someting about a red oxide Panther thats for a fact :)

One tiny, tiny observation on the jack....
The bottom plate shape on 20t short was square lowered not square ribbed.
Can be seen here at the Panzer Basics site:

https://www.panzerbasics.com/index_file ... t/jack.htm

And then it is that far to big crown....but no one has yet got it right... :D

Keep up the good work Panther friend!

Kind regards
Kent

Hello guys,

thank you for the comment about my jack. I will try to rebuild it. I like real details and this part I dind´t note.

I used a special aluminium glue for the casting of heads of rivets and screw. I cast it to the silicon mold.


Have a nice day

Michal

I started to work on the front plate. I rebuild the hinges of the drivers doors and the system of the fixxing the front plate because there is a different system as the A model. I finished the doors. I used some parts from ARMOPAX and others parts I made myself.

Hello everybody
I made new inside frames on the front drivers doors with the rubber gasket. Finally I finished the barrel holder from the bras plate. I made the chain from stainless steel. I am starting to work on the new periscops.

Amazing parts! Beautiful work! Hopefully you didn't cut the links of chain on the travel lock by hand! Very nice detail parts.
