Panzer 2 B-C

Hi Guys,
It's been awhile since I was here . so much happening etc.
I have started on a Panzer 2 C and converting the turret to the split hatch with the square hull.
I made the visor workable and the hatch more real looking.
Here some pictures, more on the tank soon

That looks pretty good! Good job putting in those small hinges on top of the MGs.

Re: Panzer 2 B-C

Thanks guys.
I will post more updates on the earlier tank build and this current one.
The next improvement will be a new split hatch with the rain guard. I will have to build two new hatches and add the workable small hatch and main locking bar on the commanders hatch.

Again thank you for your comments.

Re: Panzer 2 B-C

Well I was bored today so i build this frame that I see on the split hatch turret versions. No idea what it is, but I like it and I'll keep it on this one. I would appreciated if some can shed some light on it.

Re: Panzer 2 B-C

Hi Everyone.
Just a small update.
I have now added the rain guards around the commanders split hatch. I will soon add the rain guard around his hatch opening and the turret will be complete. I used 0.40 x 0.40 styrene to make the rain guard and will use the same on the turret roof around his opening.

I have also used real rubber for his head and arm pad rest and a picture of the handle mechanism used on the hatch. Note the picture is from a stug , but the setup is the same.

Re: Panzer 2 B-C

A few more pictures, really only posing the crew.
Once i paint the turret I will add the rubber bumper around his entrance. I will use rubber tube and super glue it to the inside.

I had to put this picture in . I love it, reminds me of my cat.

Re: Panzer 2 B-C

Hi Pangeae95
Thank for that. I has been a while for me too.
I have been following your build and love the detail to MG in the Panzer 2.

I have now painted the turret and it is fresh out of the factory
Added the rubber protectors for the commander.
On another subject , i may start making more KWK30 metal barrels should the need arise.

Re: Panzer 2 B-C

Cheers thanks for that.
I have been lying low at the moment so I have not done any extra.
Once the weather is warmer I will restart on the old panzer 2 , complete it and move on the new one and start its build.
Couple of extra pictures.

Re: Panzer 2 B-C

Thanks Hammer for the comments.
Long time between posts for me.
Upadate on the Panzer 2
Removed the turret add on plastic oversize bolts to the armor. Added my own steel bolts to the turret. Redesigned the front sprocket housing and redesigned the main wheels. I used a 10mm thread cutter on the inner axle and will super glue the nut. I had to remove part of both wheels to accommodate the large nut. It works well.. Simple. Like me!!
Just the usual mods after that. Welds cables etc etc.
Oh, I did alter the springs. added a steel pin and better main nut for the spring retention.
I'm building up a spare turret to look as the up armored style the DAK used in Africa on the manlet. Once I get the shape done and bolts made up the turret will get the upgrade.

Re: Panzer 2 B-C

Hi, thanks for thoughts , still moving forward.
Today I painted the tank in matt black and since the wheels are rubber it seemed best to stay with black for the lower hull and running gear.The top is black too, but will get the red primer later.

I reduced the size of the small return roller axles as they are over sized and it annoyed me. if for no other reason I like the look of the reduced size without the tracks on. Up grade the springs with steel pins and zerks for the man axle on each spring housing.
A few pictures
