This was my first model. I start building in the end of 2010 and its takes around 2 months. This is pure OOB.

The beginning:


First mistake:


I just but this tiny part upsidedown and noticed this only next day.

Intermediate stage:




Toughest part "only" 5 layers and it takes almost 30 minutes to complete.


Preshading and basecoat




And this is a complete model.




My model and prototype:


Waiting your comments

Strange... The left guy standing next to the turret looks like a hungarian soldier. Maybe it's just the lighting...

Mabe, mabe not, who knows this exactly. Polish guys are saying that this photo was taken in 1943 and there is a 16. Panzerdivision.

The figures and foliage look so real!

Nice work! I too must get me a Panther with zimm soon.
