I'm back people!
After this battle with PE, I won't deny that my motivation has taken a hit! I had gone to get back to reassembling the panther but the amount of work to do to me demotivated ...
But I therefore left aside and continue leo stuff but not headaches. So I started studying the 3 instructions from Tamiya/Voyager/Real model to see what I was going over parts replaced by Tamiya. I found that some parts are unnecessary in some cases. For example, at least not implement the replacement tracks pads, replacement fixations of origin is not useful. We don't see them at all. It has other parts which, by their size and compared to where they are, contribute nothing or very little to the final result. For example, the padlock of side boxes will be stashed behind the slat. The reliefs found on the Tamiya kit are certainly crude but it will do. See for yourself ...
I then start to "clean" the surface of the hull of all the parties that I have to replace by PE.
What do you think?
I then did some research on colors that must have various lenses and optics. I had to collect 200 photos and most close-up. Anthony Seward had give me some nice pictures, thanks to him.
I do think periscops with clear green from Tamiya. From inside the leo, blocks are totally clear but not from outside. I think that's a reflect, the thickness and perhaps surface treatments that do that it seems green. Look at these pictures:
For the panoramic camera, it's a reflection of purple but I don't know how to do ...
In some cases, it's more blue as we can see on that Leclerc picture:
Have you an idea to do that??
I think smoking lightly armored glass in front of the hatch you see in the picture. I'm still waiting for the response from Anthony, but you have an idea of what clear color I should use to make optical lenses hidden armored doors? I would see it without particular color for their site but I have a doubt. I speak of those stashed in there:
Once again, thx to Anthony for his kindness and pictures
