Now, the thoma brackets on the hull!
Nothing is glue!





Brackets are difficult to build and to design them with correct dimensions and angles...
I made an wip thoma with aluminium sheet and mesh. I used cyano to paste them. I'm not satisfied about result so I'll resume later another one with brass .

As you can see, Friulmodel tracks are mount.

thx!!

yes, yes, don't worry!
They are mount on the panther tentatively to view if the height of the schurzen are good between the wheels and the ground. When I said that I've mount them, I mean different parts of each track.

Now the result, the brackets fixed to the hull.

As you cas see, I made mudgards along the hull. I haven't put the front mudgard to show that it' was destroy. I have build a rack for jerricans, don't forget that I want to place my panther in North Africa.
Because of that, I must put another devices to other places. Tracks supports, piece of wood etc...

Yes I know but my panther isn't a "what if 46". I place my panther in a paralell world... Yes, i'm crazy
In my world, the panther would served in North Africa with modern devices or spefifications.

3 small uggly pictures of one of the supports of IR devices. :-X

As you cas see, 5 tiny parts for a tiny result... Once again, I use the CAARS, very useful here. Must do not weld a place for it to be desoldered next ... With tin, it's very strong reported on the size to the parts. Given the size of parts, it is difficult to get a better finish.

Now, the schurzen!

I have not managed to produce the parts in which I hoped to achieve but I think not succeed to do better but here's the result. As usually, I take a sheet brass of 0.2mm. Different parts are soldering in the thickness. It is very fragile but the grating (not sure about the right word..) will consolidate it later. For the large bracket; I adapted and "invented" the system of real panzer 4. The small parts in U-shaped and small parts behind the Thoma. All parts are not very nice ... :|
To make nicer parts, I should use HM photo-etched but it's too expensive and too difficult to do.

pictures!!!!!!!!!

hello to all on Tuesday morning!


I bought a drilled mesh from Royal Brass Model to finish my Thoma. This is as thick as the classic PE and it is especially weldable.
In the photos, you can see the result of all the drilled mesh on the hull. I did not do it all of theme. On the right side, I have'nt put all thoma to show that the hull received a projectile. At the rear, I did not put to admire my rack jerry. Left flank side, I did not put the thoma eo show the tube.
