Hello Chris,

unfortunately I don't have any photos, as I have to take a little building break because I have too many things to do at the moment

And yes, the IV G is my favourite version too I think the G version looks pretty cool.
Especially in a nice winter wash

Regards,

Notger

F2 or G LOL nevermind as its a very nice kit to build and gives a lot of fun. Anyway dream came through as DML realised the proper G just recently giving me a chance to go for 7 SPADE aus Afrika. Have to look if one can make middle G of it as well as early one or maybe some late with scrathbuild as well. Maybe DML will go for the one with Schutzen like they did in the past with Kursk version.

Will have to go for T-34 someday, for a mom I am "glued" to German armor.

Agree with you Notger, winterwash looks pretty cool.

I have completed turret bin and commanders cupola and here is trouble
I was so smart enough to glue armored open visor in cupola part F11 upside down. There are five such parts and I accidentaly made one the wrong way. I am normally using CA glue so would be not a problem with some help of Debonder I would tear cupola apart and make it right but in this case I thought I would give a try to Tamiya Extra Thin Cement for the first time in my life and when I realised that I mad a mistake was all to late. Glue was complety dry and cupola is like concrete now. Can not tear it apart without damage. arghhhhhhh... So now I have to find some replacement cupola.

These Murphy's Laws ...

Will be continued when woooossssaaaa ...

Chris

Good thing you didn't glue all 5 of them the wrong way.
Sadly do not have this kit so not sure about the parts layout but did you try push it out? As I think you are not the only one whom done thta kid of errors. Or use some strong blade to get it out

I don't know if you're still working on this, but as I was going through pics of F1s, F2s, and Gs, I noticed that the drive sprockets for this model are wrong. They include the drive sprockets for the F1 as the default, but the F2 used the same sprocket as the G, which has slightly thicker spokes. Of course, I only notice this a day after I glued them together.

Because this kit and DML's PzIV E both have paint and decals from the 22nd PzDiv, Reg 204, I thought I'd try and do a diorama from the Battle of Rostov (1942). There's a picture of the F2 Don region, so I'm fairly certain it was at Rostov. The 22nd got hit pretty hard at Rostov, so I don't know if the two tanks made it to Stalingrad, where they were likely disabled by communist mice. Of 104 tanks in the 22nd, 62 of them were disabled by mice before the Soviets counterattacked.

That might be more fun to do.
