The decals for the engine came from the horrid decals used on the tank. They are very thick so work really well with the plates I placed on the engine. They are small enough for you to notice that they should in fact be installed on a fire extinguisher :whistle:

More shots, some in situ.











And a really horrid one of the MG mount in place



I'm now ready to work on the Tiger IIs, but I will take some more shots of this with the BergePanther by it's side to give the full effect of what I was after. Then I'll have to make a 1:16 Frys (however you spell it), Gantry to lift the turret off.

I should note that the top shot down on the carburetors clearly shows that they're not meant to be seen without the air filters on. No holes anywhere isn't quite right heehee.
