So finally progress!

The turret details are in place, as well as the tools and some details on the main gun shield.

The exhaust pipes are ordered and paid for, but it will still take a few weeks for the parts to arrive from Germany, since I've also ordered two plastic modelling kits as well.

It is much cheaper in Germany. For example the 1/32 scale Revell Bf 109G-6 only costs 21,5 Euros there compared to about 43 Euros here in Sweden! This price difference alone means that the freight, which has cost me 22 Euros, practically was for free.

The upper side of the turret has received three chemical warfare indicator plates and a twelve o'clock marker for the tank commander. The right side of the main gun shield has received two IR lamp brackets.

I've also painted 19 kill markings in black on the main gun barrel.

When the exhaust pipes are in place I'm going to take a drive to the forest and take some final pictures of my Panther tank there.

At the moment I'm not sure if I'm going to buy any tow lines at all. It is not necessary as far as I see it.

More pictures to come in a months time or so!
