    Thanks Kroko. Good to know

    Managed to pick up a 1/24 Kenworth and a 1/48 Bandai Panther. Time to learn about moulding I think!

    nope .. for some reason Airfix at some point rebranded all their OO Scale (1/76) to 1/72 ...... but it's the same set
    Revell did the same for some of their old Matchbox re-releases. 1/76 originally, now boxed as 1/72..

    I was pulling parts from my kits to get this going and I ran into a snag. I can't find this part that is circled below. I believe it's the muffler baffle but I don't see it in the Tamiya kit. Is it only present in the Bandai kit? Are there alternatives, or am I just missing it?

    It's from the Bandai Panther, can't help as to the Tamiya yes/no.

    sry to say I'm not likely to see my molds for a few days (I'm dumping my donor kits and will find them mixed in with) but I will assume that anyone who has built the remote may have access to this mold and resin... perhaps saving you having to find the Fuman/Bandai (though I'd really recommend it)

    Yeah, I've been trying to get my hands on a Bandai but I keep getting out bid.

    ah, yes that'll do it, the scourge of the hobby. Well, hopefully someone will be able to step up soon. Fortunately, you can 'complete' the remote without them; the drawback being that as you weather it, you won't have the pieces in place to interact with any wash or splatter, and so will want to hold off or re-work those areas to unify your surface details and main form.

    If you're in a "scratching" mood this is what I get for the measurements:

    Yeah, that would be great. I'm planning on making a gang mold of parts so I'd only need one.

    Crap, I don't need them now. I just won an ebay auction for the kit, I just got on here to post about it. Thank you so much for doing that still.

    The Panther kit came in and I can confirm that the part is not in the Tamiya kit. Tamiya molded the muffler as one piece so you don't have to assemble it unlike the Bandai.



    This is what the Tamiya muffler looks like.


    Here is the assembly instructions and muffler baffle in the Bandai kit.

    Not really, there is BrundleFly’s instructions which have some measurements, it’s pretty handy. But no blue print that I know of. One thing that I’ve noticed reading through a couple build threads is that your measurement are slightly different if you vac-form your parts VS cut them out of flat styrene.

    Here is the link for the domes. This is the link for them in acrylic, but moving to the base hemisphere dome page on their site you can search for specific materials and there is also ABS available. That would be a softer material that is easier to scribe, but won't be see-through.
