Bart Goesaert That cockpit is nice... the idea for presenting it too...

Holger Kranich This Looks really good! I heard rumors about some gaps who appear whilst building. Can you confirm it? Must be the upper side and can be comouflaged with kit parts.

Stephen G @Holger - Yes, unfortunately... I've been test-fitting the 2 fuselage halves around the cabin as I progress and let's just say... I am not looking forward to joining them. There are large gaps both on the bottom and top, and I don't think there's anything you can do to prevent it happening. Theoretically you can close the bottom one, resulting in a larger gap at the top which can be covered by the engine housing. But.... the engine housing then doesn't fit properly on top either. I'll try to get a photo of the problem on here!

It is the only difficult gap issue I've encountered though, and weighed against the detail quality of the kit, it's probably still worth it :)

Holger Kranich Good to know that. And i still wanna have the kit. Am i a bit Masochistic? ;)
5. July at 12:15:27
Stephen G Maybe a bit! I've put a few photos on to show the extent of the gap you may or may not encounter.

Konrad Limmer Very nice Stephen !
Your progress looks fantastic and don't worry about the gap. Perfect Plastic Putty and the gaps are gone ;)!

Stephen G Thanks guys! I was really happy with this one :)

Slavo Hazucha Good stuff! Love the mascot on the left front light-guard :) Also a solid custom job on the turret armor structure - actually I think it´s a pity you covered it up with the rolled-up canvas in the finale...

James C A fantastic result. The assorted stowage items and crew figure really bring it to life. Very cool.

Is there any news on this? Certain websites had it marked down for a 2018 release... Hopefully it will appear this year to coincide with the Tornado's RAF retiral.

Chris Greathouse That tank is a lot of fun to look at :D Well done!

Slavo Hazucha That´s a seriously cozy place inside that Panther :) Looking good, received a healthy portion of love & care, I like the chipping in the Turret interior, right place, right amount

Did they really had the torsion bars open & visible, or is this a kit feature to show more good stuff?
5. July at 07:41:28
Stephen G Thanks! I'm not sure I'd do such a complicated model again until I have more experience, though! Haha.
The torsion bars are only really visible when the turret is removed, I think. But the model, I have to say is almost entirely accurate to the real thing. I was building it while following along to a couple of very detailed books on the Panther interior and was constantly surprised at how many little details RFM got right.

Holger Kranich Nice weathering, inside and outside!

A great kit! (Probably not for beginners, as I found out...) The cut-away idea is something I hope to see repeated with other kits in 1/35.
