I didn't remake any of the seems just filled the gaps left between them and the adjacent hull part and put in some texture with the xacto blade. They are well done, just require a bit of attention to get them to actually weld the pieces together convincingly.

It's all good bro.
I do have to admit that those metal track do look good.

Nice build going on here.

Thanks

AWD

Another update... rear plate is essentially done. First of the Lion Roar update that I've used and it's pretty good stuff. Has something on it that my soldering iron doesn't like but a good sanding takes care of it. Stowage bin was the first order of business and was the biggest pain in this step. Went together ok but once I started to dent it I lost some soldering joints and had to keep fixing it as I was banging it up. Used some evergreen for the top just because it didn't make any sense to try to make the PE top and position it shut since it's basically the same thing and would have been more work. The fidly hinges and latches took a while as well but they are all on there finally. Put a few small arms holes in there just for kicks. Not going to put the other one on there.

I wanted to try something a little different for the exhaust since I wanted to bang them up a bit and didn't want the melted plastic look. I just rolled some really thin brass sheet around the kit part after I had sanded around it to try to make it a little thinner and cut away most all of the mid section to be sure I had room for whatever dents I wanted to make it in. Soldered the wrap together and filled around the top edge with CA glue and sanded smooth. I suppose it's now fractionally too large in diameter (sanded down kit part plus the brass sheet is slightly larger than the original parts) but after it's painted I don't believe it will be perceivable. I misted them with paint to have a look and they look the part to me so I windexed it off and kept going. May replace the punched bolts that I put on there, they seem a bit too large. Lost my smallest hole punch and find myself needing it more and more....

Anyway, without further delay, here are the pics....






As always, love to hear any comments or suggestions.

Exclamation

If I may say, don't use too much for referencing off of this G for an A Panther.

They are not the same animal!


Nice work with the PE!

Well I was looking at it largely for major details that my Tamiya is lacking, that I'm sure are the same from each Ausf. Bolt placements where I know there should be some, mainly around the transmission housing which is very poorly done on my kit, etc. It's so hard to research, because the referrence I have (Osprey book on modeling the Panther) says that the Panther versions are all basically the same externally, that most of the revisions in the line dealt with internal changes and equipment additions, yet when I look at the 2 versions I can see some obvious differences on the outside. But I'll take a look at your A too Chad...thanks!
