Here's where the low hull stands as of now-



Close up view of the underside of the kit. Some really nice detail in here, check out the screw heads on the sponsons and the weld seams on the hull.

Test fit of the upper hull to the lower. Some parts, such as the MG, hatch things, and one of the grilles have been glued in already. The one tow shackle is just dry fitted. I've got the Aber set on order, I'm considering removing the fenders and replacing them with PE.

Hi Evan,

This should build up into a nice one quite easily. I think you should go for the fenders, they are not that hard to do.

At the risk of heresy here on Planet Panther.. how many Panthers do you really need? LOL :-)

But seriously.. this kit is just the business, if ever I build a Panther (in German markings that is) this will be the kit.

Good work so far.
