Panzer IV 267/268

Hi guys
This is my story off a two years
build on a R/C Blitzkrieg Armor Panzer IV.

It will never reach Tim Bowman amazing Panzer IV !!
wich I have followed with great interest those
last years. Tim´s great build inspired my so much
that I just had to buy one off the last IV´s just
before BKA closed down.

So bevare it will be a long and bumpy ride.

Yippe it arrived in early June 2010



After a good deal off unpacking all the stuff, Tim did a exellent review off that , my mechanics long for
some action. They will for sure have there hands full off it,but at this stage they don´t know it.


Here at work with all the hatches



And here I´m at work also


Some playing around just couldn´t help it :-)


A lot off space ! Well that would come to change . My power plant


Ok so much for today see you

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

PzIV one of my favourites, I though was going to buy one but the timing wasn’t right and I never bought one, but then I have a few other projects in line.
Keep the pictures coming.

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Some month before I actualy lay my order
for the BKA IV I made sure that I could get
all the super details from Mike Stannard.

And it arrived some short time before the IV itself




I also wanted some special parts for my mechanics.


Smoker Unit from Richie Wignall a super bloke to deal with and
a great little smoker


With out guys like Mike/Tim/Steve "Panzerwerk"/Steve Winstone/ Dave at Armorpax sorry if I forgot some one no offence I hope. It would not be the same hobby thats for sure thank you for pushing the limits for what is possible in 1/6 scale.

Some Nuts and bolts could also came handy as I took a early
decision that everything would be glued/and bolted on the vehicle
just to be sure it could handle some rough crosscountry rides.

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Some off the early problems I encounter was
that the track teeth didn´t match the roadwheels.


And that the rubber was so large it interfere with each other.


By coincidense I bumped in to a old freind off mine that had a
minilathe and I could borrow that for the entire project.

So I had to put the boys in work and they really got to it.



Some days later they where so proud off their work and they should. Only the rubber left to deal with.

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

So back from the Swedish Capital where we
went to see Rain the tribute to the Beatles and the 60´s
that was a great show they put together.

Well back to some more off the early work
done on the IV.

This is a lot off bolt on performance ;-)

Changing from three (J) to four (H) returnrollers,followed Tims exellent
description


Original molded bolts



My version with brass bolts









Every bolt that dosen´t have a locknut is secured with locking compund so they wont come off going through ruff terrain.


Until next time keep you´r good work
coming all off you

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

I like what you have done so far, adding bolts and removing the cast nut/bolt heads is always a good move, the PzIV is one of my favourites and I will follow this build

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Some job I did on the Commander Cupola

Casting errors


End result with Stannards locking tabs


Something I couldn´t resist just had to do was getting on with
Stannards beautiful AA-MG mount it was a pleasure to do!


Only thing I added was the gurtsack holder bolted on with some
00-90 bolts




Some more off Hans and Fritz busy replace some more
bolts on the rear deck.

What is wroong Hans ?

Not sure must be a odd thread never saw anything
like that Fritz.

Stop complain Hans get back to work we had to finish this up before the
Hauptsharführer gets back,hurry up! Or we be on the next transfer to
Russia!



Enjoy until next time

I believe there were square openings in the front of the bin to access the lift hooks. The mounting straps go under the hooks.

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Awesome project. Looking great!

I like the two mechanics who are building this panzer.

I also had the help from two Germans when I was building my Tiger I:
Battletanksbelgie.be • Toon onderwerp - Bouwstrip: Mid Tiger I (Armortek 1/6)

Because I'm living in Belgium they spoke Dutch.


Keep up the good work!!

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Hi again Bjorn

There are no holes in the bin. The straps are mounted as Jeff says, under the hook, but this is simply done prior to bolting on the bin.

you can see it here in the first photo
Panzer IV Walk Around Page 4

keep up the excellent work

best regards
Tim

Quite right Tim. It seems to be my habit of late to comment too quickly. I was thinking of later marks of PzIII and the way the bins attached. Didn't mean to mislead anyone.

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Some more old news on the IV build.

Some off the early thing I had to make a try
at was a bar to carry some extra tracklinks


Another problem area was at the rear there was some uggly "to say the least" casting errors on the upper hull.


If you read this Peter I´m so sorry but I didn´t dear to do it you´r way .

I had to try to fool the eye by doing some new air-intake,and solder a
squre beam on to the rear L-bracket where the fake bolting is anyway.

There also some glimpse off Stannard and Bowman equipment ,but more
off those a little later.

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Here I´m busy mounting all those Stannard tools,
every bracket got some soldering in all joints.
And then drilled/glued/bolted on to the fenders.







Spare wheel holder was modify so that it will not protrude outside
the fenders,after that solderd it together again adding key holes
not sure what they do?


With som more details

Thank you David I´m aming for a late H.
Rebuild to a Pz.Bef.Wg.IV April/May 1944.

I am slowly adopting to the thoughts that
it will be static 90% off the time and 10% RC
so I will try to make some small interior things.

All about the details I have great inspiration from Tim Bowman.

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Great mods there. It's always nice to having working wing nuts. It's so much easier taking tools on/off for painting etc and looks more realistic. Your PZ IV is going to be a beauty. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

A couple off more reply and you´r up to date.

Some more tooling stuff.

One thing that gave some more headache was
how to mount this great Stannard cleaning rod set.

I´m not so pleased by just glue it on, as you probably
know by now ;-)

So after a long time I got one idéa how to be able to bolt it on.






So glued/and bolted will change the wooden thing for a proper brush
You can also see the first version off the armor rear antenna mount, more off that later.

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Thank you all for you´r feedback.

The Stern Antenna armor mount was another little thing
that gave me some head ache until one night
it just came to me how to solve that.

This is the result "I like to work with brass as you sure can tell"




Test mounted on the upper hull




Just couldn´t resist to try on the whole thing on those picture its
leaning a bit forward have solved with some spacers.


So that was the story off the Armor Stern Antenna mount.

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

When laying out the tracks they had
a very bad sweep.



After some tear down and cleaning and redrilling the track jigsaw,
was on its track so to speak.

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Some more on the IV building story

Here I just unpacked Tim´s great items
can´t say how much I appriciate this guy
even though I never meet him in person
always very helpful and a great guy.



Another great item from Tim


Some off the details done on the rear hull,I moved the pre-heated water intake a little


Fritz and Hans just got back from the workshop school and they
just had to have a go at it.

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Next thing to my very long "to do list"
was to fix the angle on the front upperhull
so that it points up and not down. At this point
its been filled also.



I also started to take up the hole for the Kugelblende and Drivers
vision port.



Hans just had to play around

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Kugelblende and its small mods

Made a simple distance with some brass bolts
so that I can fine adjust the tension so that the
Kugel can flow freely.


Mounted inside






Just couldn´t resist to have a try with the MG

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Time for a little update on my work on the IV,some photo
off the work done.Tim´s exellent bogie detail caps.


Some detailing on the hull



Had to get a little help from a "minipanzer" friend with
some off the work with fitting ballbearings and some other
machine work, my skills and machinery wasn´t up to it.

Now all the road wheels and return rollers done

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Thanks Sixth Vanguard.

Some more photo´s off my work on the drive spocket
asd I just don´t want to glue things on the model but
try to figure out what maintenance work could be needed in the future.

I went for a working center bolt on the drive spocket



My friend Hans did the machine work on the axle drill and tapped 3mm
in center.




Sorry for the bad light in some off the pictures

I also drilled two holes just inside the rubber on the road wheels
So that I can take away the rubber, and then through the hole push
out the center cover on the road wheels.

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Some more pictures from my work on the IV.

Now the drivers vision port are in place so
are the radio/mg and drivers hatch also.
Started on the steering brake hatch hinges
as usual it got the brass bolts treatmeant ;-)
Vent covers also got in place.

Left to do is the center bolts.


Working on the front gave me the curage to try to get real working
spare tracks holders.Something that has been in my mind for a long time. This is the result.


How to get them in place?? Well it became the old solder some bolts to it :-)




With the spare tracks in place,left to do here is some "Welding around all the holders"

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Some exceptional work you are doing and shows just how much time goes into building a 1/6 model on one hand it’s a shame it take so much time to build but on the other once completed you feel empty with nothing to do, keep up the work it’s exemplary

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Thanks for those nice words, and yes I completly agree with you
rivetcounter.

Some more off my picture diary

Another thing I´v been thinking off was how to get a
real working antenna for the RC system,first I thought
about the easy way as we did in Pro 10 RC car racing
inboard antenna. But as I said that was to easy right? :-)

I do like to work in brass,so it was off to the solderingstation
and get some work done. Copy the white metall antenna base
and added some 2/56 bolts to it to get a firm assembly.



After that I took one off my Stannard antenna rubbers a part and solder
the reciever cable to the top part, and then carefully refitting it.



In place

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Hi Falckner,

That 's a great update.

Just be carefull with that receiver cable you soldered to that antenna holder.
When you gonna put a real brass antenna in that holder you will now change the lenght of that cable and that may affect your receiver.

Every channel has his own specific lenght of receiver cabel. Changing that can result in a bad connection between the transmitter and receiver.

Better still use 2.4 even inside a metal tank this poses no problems I have used 2.4 in my Tiger without any problems

I might change for 2,4 ghz in the future at the moment I use
a cheap MC 12 Graupner 40 mhz.
And go for inboard antenna also ;-) good to hear that this
is working perfectly.

So some more brass work done

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Hi
Today was a good 1/6 tank working day
started off with the side "shürtzen".


All the mounting brackets got their molded fastening things removed, and was drilled out to be able to mount them with flat head 0-80 brass bolts.

Looks like this from inside the bolts will have locking compound and then shortened .

After that I took on those two handles on the rear upperhull got the usual
treatment off with casting bolts and on with 00-90 bolts with washer and nut on the inside and som glue off course. Overkill??? you bet ;-)

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

So I´m back in the IV saddle again
after a long time where I´v finished
this two off from my project list.

The single one is built for Loke666

To do some work in wood was real fun
and I can see new projects in that material
in the future thats for sure.

I like the look of those trailers! Very sharp looking and they appear to have been made from very workable materials.

I got the same in whermacht grey, and they are hollow.
2 rubber bands are around it and 2 rubber caps (on top and on the side)
Can be removed to fill them with water, sand or something to make them heavier.

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Hi
Try to answer all at once.

First yes they are metall ones Dragon brand and as Leown says.

The guys will sure have a good drafted beer ;-).

Well they are not stand alone units, but could be used in
the back to fill up the picture in a supply dio.

So I´m back at the Photo etc for the turret schurtzen
and a lot off hinges in white metal. They will have to go
and I will make my own there.



The first one made !! only 14 more yes !

Fisrt four ready and testing the whole thing seems ok.

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Well Björn

I was just checkking on your PZ IV - and I see you couldn't resist posting pics of the fueldrumtrailers!!??
Now the pressure is on me - as I'll have the task of painting them - before someone copies them and post his first!!?

OK to finish fast - yours will be pink!

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Well Henrik

Just some picture to show what I´v been
up to lately, people could think I was on a vacation. ;-)

Didn´t have time/effort on another building story.

And frankly all are welcome too copy/improve them, I´m not the
first one too build wagons like those Stannard did some
prototype´s 5-6 years ago.

"Pink should be for the Panther" :-) Mr Clouseau

I´ll go for plain dark yellow and a lot off panzer grey showing
through.I think that will make the "story" off those wagons
more accurate.

So enough off those wagons.
Preparing some off the Tim Bowman option parts



Hans working on those photo etc parts " seems too be a bit puzzeld"
And I can just agree with him.

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Well
Patience is vital when you got a BKA model at
hands that is something I learned the hard way!

And those who awaits something good never mind
the await as the old proverb tells us.

So the extra manpower got those schurtzen in place and the doors adjust
left to do is some more soldering and some small adjustment.

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Your mechanics have it right.
If it doesn't fit, hit it with a BFH (big f**king hammer).

Your tank is looking great.

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

LOL you´r rigth Hammer´s some small persuasion
with the "BFH" and most things will fit. ;-)

Been busy with all those turret details lately.

First job was on the Commander Hatch drilled out
the hinges for a 1,5mm Brass rod then the usual
mods get rid off those "casted bolts" etc

In place



Next object that has been a real pain to come up with a
solution on how to fix. Was the "periscope" that comes with the
267/268 versions. Looking through my ever "expanding scratch boxes"
I found something that could be the thing.

One 15/20 year old wheel adapter from Tamiya I think it was.
With some 0-80 bolts this might do the trick.


In place and quick test too see where we´r heading

Just had to play around a bit yesterday,
so another "dry test" too see where we´r heading.

One off the panzer guys sneaked out off my wardrobe
to join the picture. Its a "lfg" when you try to take a
picture with limited space ;-)

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Thank you guys.

This weeks work has been mainly
painting all that brass work with
a echting primer.

But I eventually got some guts to remove
those pilzen mounts on the turret roof.


And Fritz and Hans got yet another project too keep them busy
for awhile.

The result was this antenna box . Got the inspiration from one off my books showing it on a Befels IV .

Reading all those books and looking at all the pictures sure adds a lot of work but sure shows up in the final build. Great looking build.

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Thank you Bill and David.
Yes Bill you collect quite a bunch off things you
like to do when you read all those books.

On and off David I have thought about some interior
but as it is my first RC Tank I´m uncertain how much
maintanance work there will be. And how much that will
interfere with a interior build.

So most off the thing is now primed and
during the time I await some more TS3 paint.

I did one thing I had in mind for a long time.
Think it turned out real ok,
My little option work on Mike Stannards fine
Cleaning Rod set I glued some fabric to the wooden
end thing to make a more realistic looking cleaning
brush. Not that I have seen any picture off the real thing
so its a bit off a wild guess.

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

I ran across this not too long ago, you have reminded me.

http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru....php?p=5193117

Text descriptions I have read are that three was another screw on end with a slot in it for use with rags, much like a rifle ram rod. Have no idea of the validity of that.

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

For others.. here is the picture that I found regarding the PAK40 cleaning brush. I will assume that this was probably standard for all 75mm sized gun tubes.

Reese reminded me from his post that we (US Army) too that we also had a screw on option that had a ring (eyebolt) in the top that we used to pull/push rags through the gun tube.. I am not sure if the Germans had this as well, but to some degree this makes sense.

I think your new design looks KILLER!!! Excellent job!

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

I agree.. Green/grey one as well. Remember that the barrel oil and/or cleaning solution is going to leak through the bag. You try to get the stuff off the brushes, but you never do. We would wrap a towel around end brushes before putting them in a bag similar to the one you created. Great job!!

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Thank you for the feed back and info
David and Joe.

The muzzle break is Tim Bowmans production
and I think it will go for a Pak 40 also.

Look at Tims homepage the panzertrap.

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Some small update on the IV project.

Looking at a bunch off war time picture to get
a decent zimmerit lay out, and not copy Bowmans
all over. I kind off mixed a couple off vehicles and made my
own version off it.

It was my first zimmerit and no easy task even though I used Mike Stannards Zimmerit tool.






Turret slowly getting there

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Thanks David! You wish ;-)

Some small update in this weeks spare time
I have re-mounted the turret schurtzen. Was
a bit tricky to get it done. Await another batch off
TS3 paint hopefully it will arrive this week coming.




Also got the interior painted in the upperhull so that I could
mount the bow mg and inner driver visor details. Will get some
more detail paint given time.

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

looks really good Björn

What did you use for zimm - Aves or the stuff I had found?
....just to annoy you - I think I have seen quiet many pics with zimm on the turret schürtzen - how about that?

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Thank you all !

Been busy lately with a lot off work on
the IV . To be able to participate on a
model weekend at one off the largest
panzer museum in Sweden. Seems as
it will be the largest get together off
1/6 rc tanks up in North. A 1300 km trip
over the weekend.


So I will participate with the IV as a
rolling project.And will set up a little very simple
scenario with my other vehicle´s.

Kampgruppe Southern ready for transit


And the IV


Thanks for looking !

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Hi
Sorry for the delay on some pictures but
I was so slow and tired last week.

Here´s some my small and simple set only missing
my Schwimmwagen there was not enough space to
bring it with me :-(


Playing around with some off the big cats off Sweden and one from Norway. Sorry to say there was no one from Denmark ;-) .


A very cool softskin was this superb SAS Jeep with engine sound Mg etc
and fully 4wd and the figures head was moving with the steering wheel left/right never seen that before.Brought there by Hans my travelmate.


And for all you Zimm lovers out there this is one side off Fredriks King Tiger. Enjoy !

Re: Panzer IV 267/268

Falckner, can I ask you a favor and if you get the time, could you post some pictures of the Radio Kubelwagon?? I'm working on one and would love to see your version of it. Thank you.
