Tamiya 1/48th Pershing, Hobby Boss 1/35 Super Pershing ….
Work begins on the 1/48th Super Pershing conversion beginning with the lower hull. Like all 1/48th Tamiya kits (those that I’ve built anyway) assembly is very straight forward. The only slight hassle involves the fitting of the plastic out hull parts to the metal hull monocoque. Super glue is required here and is unforgiving due to it’s rapid set time. Superglue gel should really be used here … or better yet lets hope all new Tamiya kits have plastic hulls.
Anyway fit of parts is good so far and with no issues. The Link and Length tracks fit well although this is the step where most care is required ….

Managed to get in a little work on the Tamiya kits bigger brother. Not much progress yet but so far the fit of parts is good with no issues.
