Death Seeker "Panther G"

Hey Guys,

its been a while..

Moving to a new place, planning a marriage a new job and just find out that my girlfriend is pregnant made me quiet busy

Well in the maintime i just had to build something quik.

It is the Tamiya Panther with no historical story to it, just paint and try some new techniques

The barrel is from Armorscale and there some resintracks from Skp on it. The Cleaning Rod and Spare Aerial Stowage is made out of thin leadfoil. I am using some PE parts out of the spareboxl and the grilles set from Armorscale.

I started with adding texture on the thick armor plates with dilluted tamiya extra thin cement,after that i worked the area with a old stiff brush. After this is dry i sand it light with waterproof sandingpaper

Some stuff such as the rainshield, skirt and fenders made a little bit thinner and i lowered the back of the beast.
