I just improve the commander’s turret for my Italeri’s -Revell 03019 Pz.Kpfw V Panther Ausf. A 1:35 which I have from long time in my collection
Unfortunately there is no periscope visors for the driver's and commander’s turret in the box, and this is so bad. Model needs 11 units 7 for the commander’s turret, and 3 for the driver and radio operator sector + 1 for the gun loader.
It is interesting that copy of the tamiya’s periscope visors fits perfectly in the revell’s commander’s turret without any adjustment.
But they need some sawing for the Tamiya’s turret.
My Tamiya Ausf G 35176 has in the set only 4 of this periscope visors for the driver and radio operator and 1 for the gun loader, but no one for the commander’s turret!?! So I saw and adjust the periscope visors so I can fix them in the Tamiya’s turret
I made copy of the Tamiya’s commander’s turret for my Italeri’s model years ago.
But just these days I equip the turret with the copies of this tamiya’s periscope visors, and now it is looking so much better
After all my old Revell’s model looking decent with its New turret
If someone shows interest to improve the situation with his models which have no enough periscope visors I can offer for swap some of mine sets you know from here for something I need! For example I am looking for Tamiya 35171 1/35 Panther Type G Separate Track Links Model Kit
Thanks for looking
