Initial/Early Tiger E Engine Hatch/Plate Modification For Non-Feifel
Posted by Panzernoob on Friday, July 8, 2022 7:43 PM

I'm looking for some suggestions on how to modify the engine hatch/plate for 1/35 Initial/Early Tiger E kits (such as Tamiya, Acadmy, Zvezda, etc.) for variants that did not utilize the Feifel Air Filters so that they look correct without the ductwork. Most are molded to have a spot to attach the V-duct and do not have an air slit or plate to cover the slit in absence of the system.

I considered simply cutting off the "v" and leaving the rectangular attachment, but I don't really have any good photo references to know if this is a suitable solution.


If there is no reasonable solution, does anyone know of a good replacement part?
