Panther G late "421" - 11. Panzer Division

Hello Guys!

I would like to present you my last model of panther tank. This is a very well-known vehicle "421" from 11. Panzer Division. I painted the right side of the vehicle based on historical images. Left side it is my imagination. A long time I thought about the color of the camouflage. I decided to green and sand yellow. I think that is a good choice. I added some aber photoetched, towing eureka xxl and friul trakcs. From the beginning, I decided that weathering will be subtle.

A workshop you can find here : http://www.pancernyklin.pl/watek-Panthe ... erdivision

It is Dragon's kit which is much better detailed than the Tamiya kit, but there are still a few areas that need improvement.

Accurate Armour have released an update set.

Yes, you have right but in my opinion tamiya kit is still good. If you want to strongly modify a kit I recommend tamiya product.

Yes, I agree that the Tamiya kit is still a good kit and it is cheaper too. Overall it matches up well with the Panzer Tracts plans, but there a quite a few areas that need improving to get an accurate model.

With the Dragon kit it is much easier to build an accurate model straight from the box.

Absolutely impressive. Looks perfect in every way. Weathering have just the right touch - noting too much, and nothing is missing. I just stared my screen and thought - this is so freakin' awesome.

Thanks
