  1. Hi, Takom panther project start 2 months ago, here is progress till now. Almost ready for painting.
  2. Hello everyone ... To prove to myself that I am certifiable. I still have the Proposed British AFV group build going. I also have the Patton Single type build in 2019. So I figured why not pour gasoline on the fire and see what happens. I must be a glutton for punishment. I am proposing another Single type group build covering the Mk.V Panther and all of its progeny. If anyone is interested please give a shout out or raise your hand so to speak. The general idea being actual vehicles no whifs. No paper tanks to me if it never left paper it should count as a whif. If a physical prototype was built and tested then it counts. As always all scales are welcome. Simply put I dont know everything about Panthers so please ask me or the co-host and we can research and determine if a particular version counts. Standard build rules will apply including the 25% rule. * I however understand that some of the aftermarket tracks take time to assemble. That might classify its own build ? INTERESTED MEMBERS 1.

  3. Hi all Sirs, here my latest cat in progress. An old 1/35 Dragon reference built from the box, so let's go straight to painting. At first, a dark priming to all inner wheels side and hull spots
  4. Panther Project Vol.2 Engine & Turret 9780993564642 AFV Modeller via Casemate UK This is the second volume of The Research Squad looking at the restoration of Panther Ausf,A 158134 in the Wheatcroft collection. This volume looks at the restoration of the original Maybach Engine, and the turret. Also included is some historical data, a hull walkaround, a look at the engine compartment, the fighting compartment, the turret exterior, turret interior, turret front, stations inside the turret, the gun; and other turret details. The book also looks into Zimmerit, how it was originally made, and how it was replicated. There are at the rear of the book a series or technical drawings of various systems. Conclusion The rebuild of Panther 158134 is an extensive painstaking one and the quality of the documentation here shows that. Any German Armour fan and modeller will be well placed for detail with this book and the others in the series. It is packed full of detailed photographs with supporting text and drawings. Highly recommended for the German AFV fan, Panther nut (like myself) and the AFV Modeller (so much so that I purchase Vol.1). Review sample courtesy of
  5. Hey guys, This is my first of hopefully many posts and builds on this forum. I'm relatively new to modelling having only two proper model kit builds to my name. This is my latest one - The 1/35 Panther D from Tamiya. I had never weathered a model before so this was a really fun build and I feel I learned a lot. You can probably tell I went pretty heavy on the rust and that (not very realistic for a Panther in Kursk I know...) I wanted to put it up here so you gents could take a look at it and maybe tell me what to improve for next models, I'm sure there is loads of things that could have been done better. But at the end of the day it's all a learning curve isn't it. By the way, please excuse the quality (rather lack of it) of the pictures, the next ones will be better. The last image is just a base I threw it on for a school project (didn't invest much time into I hated having to model for school purposes) My next project is a rather big one, diorama of Bologna airfield 1944, Italy. I won't give all the details here but If you're interested the first post will be up in the diorama section as well as one in the "other vehicles" section (first build is the 1/48 SS-100 from Tamiya) in the coming days. I'd appreciate it if you could help me out by telling me how it's going what I'm doing well, not so well etc... Kind regards, Jack
  6. Hi All, Here's the much lambasted Italeri Bergepanther kit. It's my first Italeri kit and I won't be rushing to get more, but it was very cheap and whilst it's been made clear that it's not accurate I quite like the way it looks. Lots of sink marks some of which I missed but I'm over it. Completely OOB apart from the AA mount,P/E Grilles and a few spare tools. The cannon was rarely fitted but adds to the appearance I think. There are a couple of million part Takom kits on the way which I'm sure will be much better but in terms of enjoyment this was one of the best £18.99s I've ever spent. Usual C&C welcome Cheers David
  7. PANTHER-G Colors For Interior & Exterior AMMO of Mig Jiménez AMMO continue issuing new paint sets at a rate of knots, and are garnering some fans with the quality of the paint. Here AMMO have teamed up with Rye Field Models to produce a paint set for their new Panther-G which brings you all the colours you need for the Interior and exterior of the kit, including the metallics for the ammo, and washable white camo if you wish to use it. Of course these can be used on any Panther kit, and other WWII German vehicles. All paints come in the standard Ammo bottle, the yellow cap signifying there is a paint mixing ball in the bottle. The colours in the box are as follows: A.MIG-002 OLIVGRÜN OPT.2 RAL 6003, A.MIG-003 RESEDAGRÜN RAL 6011, A.MIG-011 DUNKELGELB AUS´44 DGI- RAL 7028, A.MIG-012 DUNKELGELB AUS´44 DG III-RAL 7028, A.MIG-014 ROTBRAUN RAL 8012, A.MIG-015 SCHOKOBRAUN RAL 8017, A.MIG-017 CREMEWEISS RAL 9001, A.MIG-197 BRASS A.MIG-024 WASHABLE WHITE CAMO, A.MIG-062 BLUE GREY, A.MIG-218 RLM 66 SCHWARTZGRAU, A.MIG-910 GREY HIGH LIGHT This set should be a welcome addition for the Panther AFV modeller, and an addition to anyone's range of colours. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of

    RFM Panther Ausf. G

    I bought this a while ago, and I have been slowly working on it. But It seems to be a very detailed model and looks to be a very promising model once completed. I also ordered all 3 of Takoms panthers today, I have big plans for those three but that has yet to come. I opted to go with the heater on the back end of the tank, as I found it neat. The biggest challenge is trying to to get glue on the clear parts or accidentally scratching it.

    RMF Panther G

    I just came across this, looks like a third company investing into the panther, and its interior. From the specs given, it looks to be a seriously detailed model. I am now stuck between a rock and a hard place... Between investing in the 1/16 panther, takom's panther(s), and then RMF's (I didnt include Meng since it doesn't include a full interior). https://www.flickr.com/photos/140207497@N02/24167237737/in/dateposted-public/
  11. Hi guys, here is Panther Ausf. D from Academy I've finished recently. It's the first element of the Eastern Front diorama I'm working on. I've made some alterations to the original moulded model like open hatches replicated in resin or the side skirts made of thin sheet of brass. No crew for now, they will come later. Thanks for viewing
  12. Hi all Panther Ausf.D from Zvezda 1/35. Painting for the customer. Best regards, Martin
  13. This is my Dragon Panther A which has been shuttling between the workbench & the shelf of doom for over 10 years. I made most of it then decided it needed Zimmerit. I tried Milliput but wasn't too happy with the result. Back on the shelf, fast forward a few years & I bought some Eduard etched Zimmerit but had to remove all the parts I'd stuck on the hull - exhausts, pioneer tools etc. Back on the shelf again. Finally got it Zimmered up & re-attached the parts. I decided to go with a winter whitewhash & decided to replicate the application in the field. I used off white artist's Guache slapped on with a brush then scrubbed with a stiff brush to simulate wear. Sealed & weathered with oils, Mig pigments & ground soil from the garden. Can't say I'm uber chuffed with the results but glad to see the back of it! Figures are Alpine. Any comments or criticisms welcome. Pete Thanks for looking.

    Meng and Takom Panthers

    Here are some more pictures I have managed to find on Meng's and Takom's Panther. Heres some pics for Mengs's Panther. From the looks of these pics it seems that Mengs will not contain an interior with the kit. I have heard that they are making an interior for the Panther but they will be selling it as a separate kit like they did with their KT. From the looks of it, Meng is further ahead in production than takom, but I could be wrong. Hopefully, they do not release on the same date otherwise I'll be broke. Mark
  15. Topdrawings 43 - Sd.Kfz.171 Panzer V "Panther" ISBN : 9788365437549 Kagero via Casemate UK This book is not a reference book on the Panther per-say, but a collection of plans and colour profiles designed to help the modeller. All the plans are in 1.48 with a 1/24th scale rule on the pages as well. In the centre of the book is are three A2 double sided pull out plan in 1/16th scale as well,one each for the A, D & G models.. An extra is a set of masks for the German Crosses, they say 1:16 on the masks but look distinctly 1:35. All text in the book is in English & Polish. Conclusion If you're interested in these tanks and intend to model a few then its worth investing in one of these publications. Recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  16. Hi, Here we have a little scene with two Armourfast 1/72 Panther G's. This was created so I could play with Mig's weathering washes as it is the first time I have tried to use them. I would really appreciate any feedback and I would like to hear of any improvements you think I should make. I'm happy with how its going but I could do with a little bit of help adding those final touches to make it look like a real war scene. I am planning on adding a few bushes in front of the tan/brown Panther and maybe one between the tanks to make it look like it is more of a woodland scene (any suggestions of where to get good but cheap 1/72 bushes would be amazing). The thing in front of the green/brown Panther is supposed to be where a mortar has landed, I'm not sure I like how it looks. My biggest issue is making the green/brown Panther look as though it has been properly knocked out. As you can see from the pictures below there are two shots that have penetrated, one in the hull and one in the side of the turret. The idea was that it has only just been shot and so the bare metal would still be showing, hence the silvery colour to the holes, however I'm not sure it looks right. What do you think? I am very happy with the damage from the ricochet's though. With the dark colour of the tank it was hard to make the washes show up properly. However on the tan/brown Panther the washes show up much better. I think I might also add some German soldiers to liven up the scene a bit and I will add a bit of mud to the tracks on both tanks. I wasn't really going with historical accuracy with this one, just trying to learn some new techniques and skills. So if you have any suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated (Hopefully the pictures show up now, apologies to those who couldn't see them before) NOW WITH BUSHES Thanks for looking Shaun
  17. As a side topic to the 'what should Airfix be making' and the inevitable 'why?' and 'why not' posts that follow can you list your personal wishlists in 3 categories: Near term - those you feel are likely to come to fruition in a year or two, even if you won't be buying it Medium term - within say 5 years, and can include those models You want to see that are a faintly realistic proposition. Long term - when you will be planning a release from your cryogenic chamber. (note: whilst the long term plans may include unlikely makes or marks, or even a corrected version of a current bestseller please try keep them fairly realistic - I doubt Airfix will be making a Tibetan homemade glider at any point despite the clamouring for one) .... Ok I'll start off (and I'll try to keep it as new kits only not rereleases) Near: Single seat Vamps P-47 (razor and bubble) D3A Val (extending the pacific WW2 niche) Buccaneer (a big UK seller and the old one is aged) Meteors (including at least 1 each T & NF) 2 seat Lightning (so many fighters, needs a matching trainer) Medium: Whirlwind (the forgotten WW2 fighter) DH106 Comet (4s please, RAF & Dan Air schemes) Victor (much demanded to replace the aging Matchbox) F-4 Phantoms (a European sized hole will persist unless FujiGawa get cheaper, or Revell add to their F) Panther/Cougar - (expanding the USN theme in to post war) Long: Vulcan (old mould is creaking) Wellesley (Forgotten type, fits with a WW2 desert theme) Gazelle (hard to find, simply needs updating to modern standards) Wasp/Scout (a missing link so long oop) Viggan (actually pretry much any Saab as the reborn Heller seen reluctant to mass market, and non-Gripens aren't commonplace) *I reserve the right to change my mind if I think of new options (and given time I could extend to top 100s!)
  18. The new project is finnished - PzKpfw V Panther Ausf. D . The manufacter offers 2 variants of Pz.Abt. 52, operation "Citadel". But my choice are different models, always . This command vehicle equipped with three antennas, coded "I 01" of Maj. Siver's 1 Battalion, 15th Panzer Regiment, 11th Panzer Division; Ukraine, late 1943. Paints -Tamiya. Weathering - AK-interactive, Ammo. Pigments - Choma. Thanks for watching! Konstantin
  19. Hi, You probably know this, you don't complete anything for months then two in two days. I finally finished the second aircraft in 1/48 for my Korean War collection a Grumman F9F-2 of VF111 Sundowners, operating from the USS Valley Forge in 1952. My first was a Corsair F4U-4 flown by Thomas Hudner who won the Congressional Medal of Honour whilst flying with VF32 from USS Leyte. Great simple kit to build, enhanced only by Eduard's PE set. The wing fold mechanism is represented well in this set, however I chose not use it. The decals were from Victory Productions' F9F-2 Panthers sheet (VPD48008) which offers markings for 12 aircraft. As I stated on my F-100C post yesterday, the next kit in line is a F7F N3 in 1/48 by Italeri in Korean War markings. See the pattern that is developing here?
  20. Hello All, The latest completions - Nashorn, Panther G and a kitbashed Jagdpanzer IV L/70 all 1/144 scale from DML's armour series. Finished in Gunze Acrylics and MiG acrylics. Weathering in oils, inks, pigments and Tamiyas weathering compacts. Thanks for looking. Thanks for looking, Ian

    1/25th Tamiya Panther?

    Quick question with maybe a complicated answer? Last week I rescued some boxes of kits from my Mum's attic. Mostly they had been there since the mid seventies when I left to join up. Amongst the Spitfires etc was a large Panther tank. Painted in Humbrol matt white it has a motor inside, suspension and is about 28 x 14cm. I'm sure I acquired it built and as is. I have learnt that it may be 1/25th scale, new to me. I was going to use it for parts for Sci fi scratchbuilds but wonder if it's actually worth anything to someone? One exhaust is missing and it needs a good refurbishment but looks fairly good (to me). I will be grateful for your thoughts. Cheers Pete
  22. Hi, I'd like to share my Tamiya Panther G, (and the old Chieftain), my second (and first, but can't find most of the pics i took) finished afv builds for many many years. It's been a different and fun experience compared to my more usual aircraft builds, got a bit bored of the latter (temporarily) a while ago so found some cheap second hand deals on 1/35 stuff. Been enjoyable experimenting and learning with different paint techniques and weathering especially. Now a small stash has grown up - nor rivaling the pane stash yet, but you never know. The base, as you can see unfinished, for the Panther is from Miniart. Look forward to all constructive feedback, Take care, Matt
  23. Firstly, excuse the poor background of these photos, I will try and get better tomorrow weather permitting. This is a dragon kit, reboxed by italerie. it was painted in tamiya and Mr hobby acrylics (which are rather nice I must admit) I had some problems with the individual tracks links so unfortunately had to resort to rubber band tracks. after a coat of mud they look ok to me. it was a very nice kit, with lots of etch and no fit issues. This was also my first winter camo attempt and I'm really happy with it. feedback welcome (just not on the photos!Lol)
  24. I hope this time the poll works with the photo below... So you know what to vote what you see. Tiger I = was made in the last century 1995 Tiger II = also .....but in 2012 repaint it! Panther & Vk4502 both i made in 2014!

    Missing Sprues

    Good Morning. Sorry to bother you through the BM forums (I have also sent an email to the Colindale store in regards to this issue). Last Thursday afternoon, I drove down to Hannants' Colindale to buy a few airplane kits and a few accessories, the items purchased where as follows: Tamiya flexible curve masking tape - 2, 3, & 5mm Eduard EX214 masking for Trumpeter F9F-2P 1/48 Airfix 1/72 Bristol Beaufighter TF.10 Hobby Boss 1/48 ME262 A-2a/U2 Hobby Boss 1/48 J-29B Trumpeter 1/48 F9F-2 Panther Unfortunately on opening the box to the panther this morning, there is a sprue missing, and an additional sprue which on closer inspection states "Wyvern S.4". The missing sprue is sprue D, the clear parts. Obviously without this part, the kit is unable to be built. Obviously, as the retailer, my initial point of contact to resolve this issue is with yourselves. Therefore I am asking that you provide the replacement sprue as soon as possible please. (please respond by PM for my address) Many thanks John Brooks
