Marc Schnitzler Many thanks
I started in june with the Jagdpanther. I was scared to, because of the King Tiger i build from Takom years ago, and his many fitting issues
On this kit i got less trouble, although its a multi part Hull. Until now the only fitting issues i got where at the Engine Compartment but nothing really bad.
If you dry fit the parts before glueing it should be no Problem
Treehugger You can probably knock down some of the paint edges along the masked water line, very carefully with fine sanding paper, before adding a gloss coat, otherwise, maybe leave it, as sanding paint will require adding a gloss coat to look ok again. There is also a danger of sanding through the paint if you also sand the flat areas with thinner layer of paint, which is ofc undesirable.

Martin Oostrom Mmm. I've got this one as well, somewhere on my shelf of half finished. Perhaps I can find some inspiration here?

Marc Schnitzler Thats a good idea, i think i will give it a try
You think 1500er Sandpaper can do the Job?
I added my inspiration for my one in this Album

Treehugger I am not sure. Also, best add some masking tape around the hull, so you don't scratch the paint elsewhere. As I commented before, I am assuming that you will add a gloss coat, else, probably not a good idea, sanding plain paint tend to look, bad.

Marc Schnitzler Later i saw these Edges comes from the Hull Part, maybe the mark to cut the Hull for a waterline model.
