PZ V Panther - really small kitty

Somebody told me that to be a real planetarian I should post here my model of Pz V Panther tank. It is GHQ 1/285 scale painted using Vallejo acrylics. This kitties should be part od 2Tank Div, June 1944, Normandy but I’m not an specialist in German camo so any comments are well come.



You can see two painted models and one clean. Fender and Zim I have made by myself using milliput.






Yes this Panther is really so small.

Wow - do you have enough display space available :D

Wild - I take it these are intended for war gaming? LQ, I was reading last night that it would take about 107 (?) trains to move an entire Pzr Division with all of it's equipment and personnel.

Time to get started, Cz...

One comment - others can describe it better - but in such a small scale you should lighten all of the colours used for camoflage... your dunkelgelb should be pretty close to a yellow/white. I think that you will like the results a lot better, and be able to see your extra work in greater contrast.

Any ideas guys?

Oh - edit - somewhere around my hard drive I have a 2nd Pzr Div scan or two - they were a three color paint job - not very defined patterns, maybe a little "thinner" lines for the brown and green.

Scale effect? Basicaly, the school of thought goes, the greater the distance between the model on the viewer, the more atmosphere is in between them. Since air contains water, the colours will be lightened by atmospheric haze. Thus, in 1/35 scale, since a scale foot is a larger size, the distance between the viewer and the model is, say 100 ft. In 1/285 scale, since a scale foot is so tiny, the distance would be about 1000 ft. (not actual #, just BS ) So in smaller scales, since there is more atmospheric haze, the colours should be ajusted appropietly to account for this. There are various conversion tables for this but I won't get into that.

Nice work BTW

Thanks Fletch - it makes more sense that way

So what does a three pack of these go for?

I’m using this small kitties for Mein Panzer game. Until now I have collected two armies: III Reich and Russians having equipment to play in every part of the front line of the WW II where Germans and Russians were fighting.
In my collection, I have also Pumas, Pz III J, PzIV D, Flaks 88 with Famos, many variations about T 34s, IS 2s and both ISUs and many more.
If you want to see anything fell free to ask.
