  1. Thanks... Red stuff is coke can.. so thin aluminium
  2. Not much bench time at the moment... But interior fittings finished...
  3. Once I have the part I will take a photo of it ....
  4. IBG have confirmed they can supply the missing part... dont think I will be around building for a while tho, still hoping to get this done by the end of the GB
  5. Cheers George, missing part A19
  6. This PE isnt too bad actually, fairly simple bends Thanks .. Ok so RHS wall underway. Just need the Boyes AT rifle bracket along the bottom then it's stalled until I confirm if missing part is coming. Will paint interior while I wait cos I think lining up the front is going to be a pain ...
  7. On to the turret, roof, gunners seat and interior. I have a nice schematic of the LHS wall showing MG an AT rifle fixtures so going to do a touch of scratch building (you should all know me by now, can't resist if the evidence is available). Will leave both doors open so should be able to see about of what I have done)...
  8. Chassis and axles done ... Need missing part before I can glue axles to chassis so moving on to next steps....
  9. Chassis coming together nicely...
  10. Argh... Just found a part missing (looking at sprue it seems to never have been cast which is very odd). IBG contacted, on to next steps...
  11. And now finished..... Found a few small additions to the interior (storage for the MG from the turret) and want to see if I can see how the AT rifle was stored when not in use, and then I can open the bonnet....
  12. Skipped to step 8 (first 7 are wheels and then PE bending (will leave that until the PE is needed)9... Engine starting to take shape. Nothing will be visible but I like making and painting an engine (May see if one of the engine covers can be left open)
  13. So all set up to start today.
  14. I think so. Think the plastic is the same but where MM use resin IBG reached with plastic....
  15. hahaha yes... full interior - engine is about 30 parts I think.... looking forward to it
  16. Photos when I am next at home but I will build the IBG 1/35 Otter. Will be out the box, have a few references but none show them really heavily laden so going to hold off stowage (unless I find could images)
  17. due to personal reasons I do not know if I will get to start this build on time, however, I am confident I can get some work done on the Otter and join in, even if I don't get finished.... i will lurk anyway to watch the great builds unfold
  18. thanks Sttix... and thanks for letting me build with such illustrious company.... great builds all.... votes cast
  19. Hurry up July 1st.... Need this GB to start so I can break out the Otter
  20. looking forward to 2023 the year of the engineer vehicle 1) BergePanther 2) BergePanzer (Hezter) from Thunder Model 3) M60 Engineer tank from AFV Club Myshould be fun own mini GB
  21. Naughty day for me ... takom 1/35 Bergepanther Ausf D and thunder models 1/35 BeegePanzer Heater early..... Both full interiors... Think next year might be the year of 5he engineer vehicles as I also got the AFV M60 engineering tank ...
  22. Yep it is the Takom version.. biggest differences are no rear shovel and just a round cover over the winch without the large wooden box (apart from being a Panther D chassis not an A)
  23. stunning work... only just stumbled across this as I was looking for build reviews before I plunged in for the ausf D version.... (which I got at a very good price). I know it is not exactly the same kit but gives me an idea on what can be achieved.... any thoughts on whether the Ausf D would have zim?
