Super update. Question, you said in one of your earlier posts that you were waiting on the cut pieces of the hull. Did you receive them and if so, can you post photos?

Also, you are in the midst of painting your turret... What scheme were you thinking of painting it? Early PZ gray or later Africa Tan as a AK recon tank?

Hello Steve,

As its going to be a C model unmodified it will have to be Grey 1939 early 1940. I have a period picture, that fits the type and time scale, so I will copy that.

Yes I have received all the main body sections both lower, upper chassis and all the blanks for the suspension radius arms. I am currently spending my evenings drawing the machined items needed for the suspension and wheels so that I can order the materials ready to machine up. Welding all the components together is the easy part but before that, there is some machining required on the lower chassis side plates for the suspension components and before I can do that I need to get the parts drawn.

I will take some pics of the chassis components and post them.

Last two. It works fine without the lenses but this is the view with the lenses in.

Here you go Steve, a flat pack PZ2. Obviously at this stage it needs a bit of imagination but not too much. The lower chassis components are packed away so I am not going open them, you will have to wait to see those. There are 2 suspension arm blanks per wheel station, they need spacing to the correct width and then all the relevant fabrication work to make an arm. The period picture is the scheme that I intend to paint the turret, which, has just been sprayed in under coat grey, Panzer grey tomorrow.

More pics.

I should have mentioned that the period picture is taken from David Doyles book German Panzer 2. Its got some great photos and if you are like me there is a great amount of detail.
