Donald,

I don't see any difference in pic #308 vs #309.

I would start using that resolution. 640x480 I think it was.

Hopefully that'll help on loading the images. But then again, maybe I'm the only person having issues with your threads.

I hope you do try the lower res, because I really enjoy your work and it would make it available to me without crashing.

Cheers Donald,
Dustin

First off , I am going back to the way I have been doing this.
I have tried the smaller resolution and file size, it is too hard for me to work that way.

Now back to work.

I think that you will find the next series of 8 Pics. useful .

First off there is no way that I can see how the spare track bracket will fit over the track using the instructions.


I started like this.

I pushed the wing nut side into the notch in the track and other end as shown.

Then onto the edge of the track shoe.

Finally over the edge.


The bottom view, I think that it would be easier to install the assembly if the ends were joined with a small strip of plastic.

The parts tend to get bent out of shape when fitting them over the track.


Here they are installed, they just need a little touch up paint.

That's all for now.

These will be the last two of the construction Pics.

I added short retaining chains to the front tow bracket pins.



Now all I have left to do is some weathering and a little touch up.

You can't see much through the front hatches.

View through the commanders hatch.

It's hard to get the camera to focus here.

Through the right front hatch.

The Ammo behind the drivers seat.

The commanders seat.

Breech and basket as viewed through right side of turret.

The hooks for the the tow cable are rather flimsy they kept on breaking off, that is why I placed the tow cable on the right side hooking it to the front tow bracket.

Well It's finally finished, I hope that some of you will find this build useful in your own builds.
I am not an expert builder, I keep on forgetting things I mean I'm old. I'll be 69 in march and my hands don't work like they use to.

There are a few things that I have learned during this build.
#1 Buy the J model, no Zimmerit needed there.
#2 Build the interior first, then attach the fenders to the bottom, then add the upper hull.
#3 Don't bother with the engine and other parts in its compartment, you can't see hardly any of it anyway.
#4 Enjoy it.

Regards
Donald

Thanks for taking the extra time and effort to share your great build. I will use it as a guide when doing mine. It has been very insightful. Ok, what is your next build?
Thanks again Donald.

I am impressed that your going to do another Panzer 4 so soon and your Panzer 4 looks great

Some feedback on the pictures issue, I believe its down to you using MS One drive to host your images, and its hurting participation in your great thread.

I have superfast broadband and a expensive PC and it takes several minutes for me to download your images ! May I suggest you try Photobucket? It works very well for me

Hi Steven,
I tried Photo Bucket a before it doesn't work for me. They passed my e mail address around , now I get a lot of E mails for making your breasts bigger, making your schlong longer, Dating sites hey I'm going to be 69 in a month , and been married 40 years.
There like roaches, you can't get rid of them.

No, I'm sticking with Microsofts cloud & the resolution of the Pics. are staying the same.

Ok well its up to you !

Photobucket works well for me and I have never had those kinds of E-mails maybe because I am just 36

I will still follow your next thread
