Panzerkampfwagen PANTHER. Tamiya's 1/35 early G


Recommended Posts

I was going to have a day finishing my B-29, but a couple of touches to the Panther led to it being finished late last night.

A thing of beauty!

I don't think the Lifecolor paints are that 'strong' colour wise. A dusting of my Normandy mix of weathering powder, toned everything down. It wasn't a designed feature as it were.
