About Adam Mann (Mannloon)

I am a professional video game artist specializing in hard surface modeling and PBR texturing. I started making armor models a few years ago and have been trying since to translate my digital skills to paint and plastic, which isn't always easy. My specialty is German Armor in 1/35.

The rear deck has the same problems as the MiniArt kits. And my kit was missing the cupola.

I have been promised that part with the next shipment Bill.

What was the issue with the rear deck again?
MAY 29, 2016 - 05:50 AM
I think the assumption is that there was an engine deck overhang as on the later marks. This photo shows that was not the case. The overhang hides vents underneath it.

The hull deck is composed of 3 parts IIRC: a front part, the turret ring and the rear deck. All three should be flush, but there is a noticeable 1mm "lip" between the turret ring portion and the rear deck.

My Bronco A is part finished, I was batch building it and Miniart's B and C but the latter two broke my spirit. Have to take your word.

Wow! Sorry to hear that, Bill! Did you send away to BRONCO for the missing parts? Guess I got lucky- My kit was complete. I wonder if THE NEW TMD will make an Ausf.A "corrections" set like they did for The MINIART Ausf.B, C, and D kits..? Also, to reiterate what I've said in numerous past posts on this site: There is NO SUCH THING as a "PERFECT" kit...
