Hello everyone,

I have almost finished work on my engine bay which has involved quite a bit of head scratching. The model depicts the full cold weather heat exchange system which appears to be common to many of the Panzer IVs. None of the parts are fixed yet so that they can be broken down for paint and it only remains to add the fuel system to an on the engine and the belt drive system for the fans. Only the radiator boxes have been retained from the kit parts.

Well David, your work is really in a league of its own.
Not only that but you're a master of all modelling disciplines.

How are those gate valve handles made?

Amazing detail, even the crews chewing gum on the firewall and fender.

plethora of nuts and washers and nary a glue mark or smudge ! I just can't seem to get that to happen. The small attention to detail is always nice to see,like the braided ground wie between the radiators. I am still in awe of the valve wheels as well. Man o man.

When will you add the v-belts in this build, right at the end or during construction?

Great work
