Hi All,

I've just finished up my 1/72 scale Panther. This one was a nice quick build and good to practice a few of the basic skills that I find get rusty if i dont use them!

I havent done a 'forest' theme in a long time, so wanted to do it again and it was lots of fun.

Kit was garbage with fit issues, poor details, poor link and length tracks that didn't fit with no guide horns (though i scratch built some for the spare tracks on the sides).


















Thanks for looking!

I think it looks very good.

Although you'll get shot on here for suggesting any late war Panther survived long enough to get weathered to that degree....

Wow, looks great! My first thought was that it's in 1/35 so had to check the topic name to make sure.
Love the camo and the general atmosphere of the scene.

Looks great. Like the paint scheme and the details like the gun mount, track link rack. The finish and the base give it a really soggy and smashed look.

Yeah, what are people like?

Like Biggles, interested to know what figure it is, looks very detailed.
