PzKfw V "A" Panther , SS Panzer Regiment 9, Normandy (1/35 Tamiya)

Recommended Posts

Well after a lot of on again off again work I finally finished this one.  Fully aware that this is a 40 year old kit with tons of inaccuracies it was a good learning experience for me and a lot of fun.

 

Modifications:

  • RB metal barrel
  • Metal tow hooks
  • Various pieces from Verlinden Panther upgrade set
  • Sealed off lower hull areas with sheet plastic
  • Scratch built Jerry can rack
  • Zimmerit applied with wide tip soldering iron
  • Fenders and rear stowage boxes re-worked with lead foil
  • Bison decals

Weathering was done using mostly old school techniques, oil wash and dry brushing, AK Interactive Rust Streaks and Flory Washes were also used.

Had you not mentioned how old the kit was, I never would have known. Great work!
