Updating the rear: the belly plate finally protrudes as it should. The towing eyes, previously as thick as the hull side, are now of the right thickness.

The central towing eye was smack in the middle of the plate, a mistake that could have been avoided by the makers of this kit. The correct position is at two thirds the height, like this:

I like especially your research on this difficult subject and your ability to correct an old kit to your findings, that is the modeling I like.
Thanks for charing

Eddy

This is more or less the final version of the bulkhead between the driver's and the engine compartment. I wasn't satisfied with the first version, as it had the access hatch too large and centered instead of slightly offset to the left when viewed from rear to front - I wrongfully interpreted the picture of the incomplete hull taken from somewhere high up in the Krupp factory building. For this new version I used close-up photos taken inside the Kubinka V1+V2 hybrid.

The next step was to put together the driver's compartment with the partitions for the fuel tanks

The asymmetrical configuration is obvious from this view

Florin, I really like what you are doing! I think you slightly misinterpreted the outermost partition walls behind the fuel tanks. From the cross section drawings they seem to align with the inner plates which are parallel. The step you see in some pictures is an additional beam infront of the point where the plates are connected. See my 3D Maus. But I could be wrong, too, so don't hesitate to veto! Thorsten
