7Past December/2010 I started my work with a panzer IV Ausf H, but I stopped it because I had problems with my health. In February/March i re-started this project. Here are the pics of the all the process.

The resin of verlinden not includes the accelerator and brake pedal, I made them using styrene. Adding a connection tothe lever of the transmission.

The compartment of driver and fighting is loose into of the chassis: I added Styrene in order to fix them. I added some " box of connection " (or transforming?) for the connections in the walls made with styrene and screws of PE. Added supports of PE for the frontal cables and others will be put after of the assembly. The radio will be put during the final assembly.

Here are more updates.

 

Turret protection:: I used the Schürzen of the kit because it it easier to move in order to show the interior (mount & dismount). I did not used the Photoetched because it would be impossible to mount & dismount to show the interior, the risk is to damage or bend the piece. I will use it in another Panzer IV i a fix form.

You should make this into a book; How to Superdetail the PzKpfw IV H!

 

At least an IPMS journal article (dare I say "Special Edition?):smiley20:

Rob,

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO....You are going to burn!!!!! Can you imagine a Journal filled with nothing but armor articles???........We would NEVER hear the end of it! It would turn into a "Where were you when the Journal published an all armor issue"? Bad Bad Man!!!!!! The mere thought of that should be worth 300 demerits!!!!!!!!

Detailing the ventilators, in the 1st. pic you can see that they have rivets, but the resin piece hasn't. In order to correct them, I added the rivets with PE and cable.

:D Hello friends!

 

I bought the publication " Panzerwrecks - 7" and I saw that the ventilator have a floodgate maintained by a chain with a hole in a side and a series of screws above to which I decided to detail my piece.

Before beginning to paint, I will give a shield of " Mr. Metal Primer" of Gunze Sangyo that is excellent for one better adhesion.

Everything looks great exept one Very big glaring mistake. You left out the kitchen sink. How is a good tanker going to go into battle without being able to wash his hands. I think you need to take everything apart and start over. I can't believe that you would allow this.
