    I've been building a 1/16 RC airsoft Jagdpanther from scratch. This is my first attempt at anything like this

    First I scaled up some plans from a 1/35 scale model and built a card mock-up

    assembled

    The BB gun mount

    The Tamiya Panther gearbox dropped right into place, so I know my measurements can't be too far out.

    How it looks so far

    This is my first attempt at anything like this and so far I'm pleased with the results.

    Your taste in soda leaves a lot to be desired. :wink: But your modelling skills are truly impressive. :eek:

    I look forward to seeing the finished result. :cool:
