Re: Early Panther Ausf G Idler Wheel

Hi. Thanks to both "Tims" above. Thanks Martin, but I think I'll pass; you won't have to worry about me "pushing you" too hard.

Re: Panther - Early A - Q&A

Hi: Based on the features I'm seeing in the only two pictures of the model shown here, I'd say a production run of Sept.43'(start of the "A") to middle of the following Nov., when the "Kugelblende" comes into use. Can't see any of the upper deck stuff. Here's some general FYI.for you within this pro...

Re: Early Panther Ausf G Idler Wheel

Hi Tim: I know this is late in the game here for this thread, but wondering if you still have a pair of those early "G" idlers for sale? Thanks.---Dave

Re: Markings

Hi. Here's my take on this, based on decades worth of research and building models. Here's some good rules of thumb, since I don't know any particulars about your Tiger. Early War vehicles tended to be meticulously hand-painted with stencils so that's as genuine as you can do it. This can still requ...

Re: deck details & whether to Zimmerit

Hi Iacopo. The translation is rather crude here, and I'm not quite sure about your point because of it. If you're suggesting that Ivano put alot of work into his product and should therefore be entitled to steal from someone else, I can't go along with that. Besides, how much work did he really do, ...

Re: deck details & whether to Zimmerit

Hey Ivano. How about doing a different engine? There's no shortage of other possibilities out there for that. What about something for, say, the Panzer-4 or 3 chassis? No one else is doing that as far as I know. There's a lot of different tanks that could use them, even just within Armortek's produc...

Re: deck details & whether to Zimmerit

Hi. All but early(and some Mid) production Tiger-1's had Zimmerit. Production on the Tiger-1 stopped in favor of the King Tiger, before zimmerit was discontinued. I say if you can do it, do it, simply for historical accuracy. Many different media out there for it; you can check those options out her...

Re: F/S King Tiger with Olaf Piekenbrink's scale tracks fitt

Absolutely one of the best paint jobs I've seen. Very accurate, sensitive rendering, right down to the minute details. Nice touch on the engine starter crank, exhaust pipes and spare turret treads in particular. Rust done to just the right amount and degree for a war-time tank. Dirt and grime, spot-...

Hi Denny. Maybe you could trade some of your "motley" collection for some of someone else's "motley" collection while there?

Re: Ask the experts - JagdPanther Periscope

Hi. Here's my educated guess on this. Yes, they certainly did have interior lights, all tanks did, but probably not red. The interior is dark, even in broad daylight, so it was necessary to have lighting. But, tanks of WW2 were never designed or intended to fight in night-time conditions, which is w...
