Fixing the gap between hull and final drive housing on the DML Panzer IV's

I made some quick videos to show how I did the fix with some plastic card where the join at A12 and the hull/B10,11 meet. Not the best quality and editing is sorrowfully needed but for the time available I hope these help in showing one option in fixing the problem without introducing messing putty or some other filler.
I'll expose the ones loaded so far and will update later tonight with the rest. Definitely watch part 9 before you attempt the fix as during the filming I got more exact in the technique with Part 9 being an addendum.

Part 1


Part 2


Part 3


Part 4

Here's a pic or two to show it closer up- sorry for the quality- pics taken with my more portable unit that takes the movies.
A rough estimation of the gap


and with the plastic glued on, this is the first one, before I figured out the better way of measuring where it should go. (See part 9)

this one is the best as it shows the way to measure the shim with no fuss.
