Here's the comparison of the two upper hulls.

Standard Ausf D. The front fender is missing the tread plate separation line. There should be a small tread plate section behind the smooth front fender section.

Tauchpanzer. The front treadplate has been corrected and is now a smaller piece.

Between the hatches
Standard Ausf D

Tauchpanzer. The turret rim is thinner and the screws are better defined.

Rear deck

Standard Ausf D

Tauchpanzer. Rivet and screw details have been improved.

The standard Ausf D has engine cooling vent cover latches while the Tauchpanzer doesn't

Re-tooled parts
The turret floor now has tread plate pattern

The shell catcher bag has better texture


Adrian Cronauer [imitating Walter Cronkite]: I just want to begin by saying to Roosevelt E. Roosevelt, what it is, what it shall be, what it was. The weather out there today is hot and shitty with continued hot and shitty in the afternoon. Tomorrow a chance of continued crappy with a pissy weather front coming down from the north. Basically, it's hotter than a snake's ass in a wagon rut.
