  5. Thank you very much Mark....most kind! I didn't get as much time on this over the weekend as I would have liked but I managed to get some stuff done: First off I managed to clean up the seam lines, etc. during the week, on all the smaller parts I found and cut off the sprues (last photo above): Then I got them painted - Revell Anthracite for a base coat on anything with bare metallic areas (right) and Revell's Panzer Grey for the rest (Left): Then any areas that are going to be bare metal later were given a dry-brushing with Humbrol's Gunmetal: There's a lot more work needed on all these smaller parts but at least I'm not leaving them right to the end! This weekend I also decided to get the additional spaced armour that was mounted on the main gun mantlet added. This looked like this to start with: A test fit of the top and sides looked like this: From looking at the above it was obvious that the mantlet would still be visible inside the spaced armour so I decided to add a bit of weathering to the mantlet: It is very subtle but at least it adds some interest - again it looks more noticeable in real life: Upper, sides and lower sections glued in place: And then the front on: A quick test fitting on the upper hull section it will be mounted on: ....and of course on the lower hull: You can also see some of the base weathering I did on the upper hull sections (not the turret yet - that's next week). Finally this week I got the exhaust units fitted: plus I did a bit of weathering behind them. But of course all that work on the exhaust units disappears behind the deflector unit!: Ah well.......... More next weekend. Comments and suggestions welcome. Kind regards, Stix

    Excellent! - another one of your impressive larger builds to follow! Looking good so far. Kind regards, Stix
  10. As Badder pointed out - you are starting with an upgrade for a model many of us would have been really pleased with but we know what magic you'll be able to add to the existing Panther. Looking forward to seeing what you do. Kind regards, Stix
