Hi everyone

Working on some of the remaining details today. Simple conversion to make a functional rear convoy light.

DETAILS

Hi Tim
I really like your attention to detail as I notice the rear mudguards and small silencer are modified as well as the angle iron across the back of the tank. They were not in the original drawn up plans.

Hi Graham

Thanks for the kind words. Many of the parts on my Panzer IV were designed and made by me but I did have a big head start as Dave says it is a Spearhead/Blitzkrieg Armour Panzer IV.

I'll be posting parts I have left in inventory for anyone interested. Here's a link to the Panzer IV parts pages of my web site that shows a few of them. I have not updated it in some time though.

Nick, sorry you had a hard time with the light.

All the best
Tim
