Hey, thanks, everyone.

 

Still a few last things before I could call the lower hull interior done.

 

On the cooling fan casings there were some plastic "things" where there should have been lifting rings. So I cut these off and repalced 

with some 0.3mm wire rings. From some reference photos I also noticed a thin pipe connecting two radiators, so I reproduced this as well.

Here's the rear wall just before gluing it on. I really have no idea why I took the photo, but here it is.

Radiators and cooling ducts were painted and then had the same treatment as all the rest of the interior

After that these were glued between the engine and fuel tank with no issues to speak of.

 

So the lower hull interior is finally completed. And since most of the interior will be closed eventually,

I thought it'd be a great idea to take some better photos of it.

Just beautiful work Kristjan, the detail on this is just outstanding, wonderful work...👍

 

A quick question, when assembling the engine I noticed that you had used a blue substance, was this a kind of pva based glue? interesting to know...

Excellent work! Weathering is very well done. I too have these Panthers waiting and yours will be a very useful reference.

Hey, thanks, man.

 

The blue substance is a liquid mask (Ammo-Mig product, but apart of the color it's basically the same thing, as Maskol).

Engine consisted of many parts that I wanted to paint separately, so to see how it all falls together I used liquid mask as a temporary glue.

Interesting, I’ll give that a go, thanks Kristjan

Jaw dropped, what an amazing work, all the things I "thought" of doing to my Panther, you actually did to yours, HA!  Following your build as I am several steps behind and eager to incorporate all the improvement you did into my model!
