This is an AFV that I have been wanting to do for some time now. I've had it stored away, and for various reasons haven't gotten to it. I actually have two G's, an early A, and a late A both DML, and a D, which is also DML. The second G is also DML. I was going to use the Dml for this project, but I thought that I'd do better converting the Dml to an earlier G than to use the Tamiya.

Voyager pe stowage boxes for the rear, which I may only use one as the other will be a scratch built IR box. Just purchased this one at the recent Orangecon here in Southern Cal.

Comparison shot of late idler with Tamiya's idler. A bit of a difference in the outside diameter.

The Tamiya idler and a small section of track assembled. I may have to switch to Friuls for tracks as the MK's guide teeth are too close together to go around the Friul idler. oh well I like Friuls best anyway as they are metal, and are much easier to assemble than any others.

Model Kasten tracks for the panther. These make the Sherman tracks look like a cake walk. Each tooth has to be glued in as well as the two tiny pins in the sides. That means you got to make sure each one is exactly the same angle and width!

Well, s'all for tonight. I might start this one soon!
