Panther Zim sets (Revell)

Response to Looks like the Stug sets will be first...

Hi Rob:
It might be good to include a bit of extra material in the Zim set for the Revell Panther G:
The mantle and mount seemed to be a bit narrow when I viewed them (after gluing it on!) and when I compared them to the DWGs in PT, The hull also needs correction: The roof of the fighting compartment, ahead of the engine deck, is too short, placing the glassic at too shallow an angle and therefore, making it too long. The fix (that effects the zim set)is to shorten the glassic and add short triangular pieces to extend the side plates. The glassic zim can easily be trimmed. The added triangular pieces and mantle are where the extra material comes into play.
All this , of course, assumes anyone else is as crazy as I am, and fixes the hull and the turret front!
(it probably would not pay to make a specific set for a "corrected" Revell kit).

Good luck: The Zim sets look really good so far!
