PANZERKAMPFWAGEN IV Ausf C TRISTAR 1/35 BOX PACKAGE I’ll try the German tank IV type C. This kit has a large number of parts.

PANZERKAMPFWAGEN IV Ausf C TRISTAR 1/35 MAKING I remember making the Panzer IV type D of the same TriStar long ago. I think there was still a making record in this blog. The memory that I was embarrassed because it was difficult to understand the small parts piece. They’ve split up here so finely. I admired.

PANZERKAMPFWAGEN IV Ausf C TRISTAR 1/35 MAKING Part of the road wheel and rubber parts were divided.

PANZERKAMPFWAGEN IV Ausf C TRISTAR 1/35 MAKINGI remembered somehow. There are various parts, such as chassis box assembly. Perhaps it doesn’t seem easy, but the assembly will be possible.

PANZERKAMPFWAGEN IV Ausf C TRISTAR 1/35 MAKING The assembly of the chassis is almost complete. Just in case, I used a lot of adhesive from the inside and reinforced it firmly.

PANZERKAMPFWAGEN IV Ausf C TRISTAR 1/35 MAKING I don’t know the condition of the top and bottom joints. There is some anxiety about assembling a large part. It is expected to use putty heavily.

PANZERKAMPFWAGEN IV Ausf C TRISTAR 1/35 MAKING The caterpillar of this Panzerkampfwagen IV is a snap-fit movable system. It was assembled without any problem when I built the IV type D before. This was a bad fitting; some parts were distorted and not good. The mold maintenance may not have been done, or it may deteriorate and be inaccurate.
I thought the fitting was too bad, and I thought I would throw it on the way. In the end, I cut off the parts to be fitted. It was assembled not as a movable caterpillar but as a connected ordinary caterpillar that pours in a standard adhesive. Repetitive work of parts with bad fitting is a pity, even though I’m used to making tanks.

PANZERKAMPFWAGEN IV Ausf C TRISTAR 1/35 MAKINGI managed to roll it on the chassis. In the worst case, we can use a separately sold caterpillar.

I just glued the upper and lower parts. I had some gaps in the front part. I filled the gap with a light-curing putty. It is a modeler’s habit to fill up with putty if there is a gap.

This kit reproduces the floor inside the turret. I can’t see the inside, but how about painting? It would be better to paint with black. There is a non-slip mold, and it’s quite realistic.

PANZERKAMPFWAGEN IV Ausf C TRISTAR 1/35 MAKING PANZERKAMPFWAGEN IV Ausf C TRISTAR 1/35 MAKING This kit, the limited edition, and the box said it’s the C type, and the instruction manual is the B type. Not included parts are specified, and there are difficult points to understand. Well, it’s good to be in shape! Even if I worry too much, I can not move forward.

PANZERKAMPFWAGEN IV Ausf C TRISTAR 1/35 MAKING PANZERKAMPFWAGEN IV Ausf C TRISTAR 1/35 MAKINGEven small parts are plastic with almost no photo-etched parts. There are a lot of parts, and it takes time to build. It was probably a trend at this time because Dragon Models were also relatively small parts kit. It can be said that it is easier to bond and assemble than photo-etched used kits.

PANZERKAMPFWAGEN IV Ausf C TRISTAR 1/35 PAINTING I changed the mood this time and tried to paint a little bluish-gray. It is Creos’s new color (although it was released about a year ago).

PANZERKAMPFWAGEN IV Ausf C TRISTAR 1/35 PAINTING Many types of decals are indicated in the building manual, but it is probably for B-type decals. It is different from the supplied decals. This time, I used the first armored division’s invasion of France. I added some decals and pasted them as I liked.

PANZERKAMPFWAGEN IV Ausf C TRISTAR 1/35 PAINTINGI am painting caterpillars, road wheels, and accessories. The rest is lightly weathering and complete.

Almost no photo-etched parts are used. However, the spirit of the manufacturer to reproduce in detail to the limit with plastic parts, the assembly was complicated. I wonder if the blue-ish German gray is also pretty good-looking.
