John and I are doing this build but if anyone else wants to hop on board, please feel free to do so. Just one rule: It must be a German Panzer up to and including but not beyond the Panzer IV.

This is what I will be building:



I'll try to get some sprue shots posted later.

Looks interesting Paul. I don't know anything about MK kits, so it will be interesting to see how it goes together.

I will be doing the Panzer IV.  This has been in my stash ever since I found my way to the dark side.  Let's see how it turns out.



I'll be getting started later today. SWMBO SAYS I HAVE OTHER THINGS THAT TAKE PRIORITY.

Sprue shots for the Panzer II.





I've done some assembly work on the turret and hull so far.

The chassis and lower hull.






The upper hull.



There is a very poor fit of the upper hull to the lower.  Note the white filler that has been placed.  It was made from 1/4 round.



Hopefully the construction will be finished in the next day or so and I can get the first coat of paint on the model.

The Panzer IV is ready for the primer coat.  It will be finished as an Afrika Corp tank and placed on a small desert base.





Still quite a bit to do so best get going.

Well, that didn't take long!!!!

Apart from adding the ancillaries (tools etc) construction is now finished:



The box art has the commander facing forward but his arms look artificial that way to me:



..... so I'm thinking of this position instead. He's no longer looking forward but maybe talking to the guy hanging out of the turret.



What do you guys think?

Finally, I'm going to have a go at ambush camo. Something like this:

I've never been successful in getting rubber tracks to join using the prescribed method of melting the little blobs and even the best glue I could find is still somewhat iffy!!!

So whilst in the smallest room of the house, a light went on in my old brain cell. BINGO!! try securing them with a mini staple!



Hey presto!!! it works and they can't be seen. It's at the top in the middle!!
