Dragon’s Early Panther G with Zimmerit (kit 7252) – complete

At long last the Panther is done.

After completing the camo pattern I found the colors were way too contrasting. The yellow was way too bright compared to the two saturated dark colors, so I sprayed a sandy acrylic mix, diluted with satin varnish. More layers were sprayed over the lower half of the vehicle to simulate the road dust.

As LSSAH was being reformed and reequipped from early April I kept weathering to a minimum apart from the bent front fenders, the dust, a few scratches and a slight bend on the side skirts.

The plastic tow cable was replaced with pieces of RB Models’ steel wire.

The antenna is stretched sprue, and the bow machine gun is a piece of needle.

Onto the pics:
