Panther Mk.V STGB ... 10 Oct. 2020 - 10 Jan. 2021 !

Recommended Posts

Cheers Dennis.

Unfortunately I work on a construction ship all over the world, and will be mega busy between now and October (wife's not really happy), 

Signed up to T-55 build, but T-34 will be impossible.

As to choice of subject, I like the engineering support rolls, (Pz4 build was bergpanzer), and looking at the Fries Fran crane as a center piece for a panther repair dio.

I notice Takom kit has a full interior, so might go that way with a turret change out, but much research still needs looking at.

 

Cheers

Paul

Sounds like a good and interesting job. Stay safe, and maybe SWMBO will get used to it after awhile ?

Still 18 months to go. Think that's just about enough time to get organised. Count me in too.

Cheers. Already had a kit in mind, and thanks to Star Decals (again) I now have an unusual scheme that I should be able to complete too.

Are we nearly there yet?

You can add me to the list too. While I wont get to build the funky paper panzer I'd like (Rheinmetall Skorpion), maybe a Panther II or a Panther Ausf. F would be ok? Prototypes of both were build but not finished, the Panther II being cancelled before the turret was made & the hull & turret for the Ausf. F were both built but never combined before the end of the war.

Hello @Mig Eater ... You’ve been added to the list. Both the Panther II & Ausf F qualify as there were prototypes built. For the Skorpion admittedly it seems like a nice option. Is there any verification that a Mock-up was built ? Anything to show it had any physical development ? If there is then it would qualify ? 

 

Dennis

 

PS - See next post.

The Skorpion was part of a proposal for several different heavy weapon carrier designs that didn't progress further than the initial blueprints. Thanks for letting me participate in GB with the Skorpion, I've been thinking of making one for awhile & I'm finding these GBs a great motivator to build such wish list projects.

BTW there are quite a few mainstream paper panzer Panther kits made by Dragon, Takom & Amusing Hobby etc, so removing that restriction should open up a lot more options for people wanting to build an unusual OOB project.

The gun & mount will be 3D printed, the modified hull will probably be made from plastic card.

D**n.  Even if it's now 17 months ... I've just ordered a kit for this GB, when I could have waited a bit.

 

Well, that might be built in the interval ....

Go ahead and build your Panther, it will give you a reason to buy & build another one.

I've just had a scan through the last 5 pages and I don't seem to have signed up for this.  With the Tiger GB ending this weekend that gives me a break during September to order a kit and some other bits and pieces - so I'd like to jump on board Dennis.

 

Thanks in advance,

Steve.

Hello Steve... It actually gives you 13 months to get ready. It starts in October of 2020, but I've added you to the list just to be on the safe side. Im looking forward to this as well.

Very nice selection.. If you choose to build it in the interim, ( seeing as this is still 13 months away) then there will be time to find another.

Thanks for warm welcome Dennis.

 

I think this "cat" will survive year ahead, because I have so many kits on schedule, so no problem with it.

Anyway, I'm glad to have an oportunity to work on my kit at the same time as other members, so we can all be a support to each other during GB...

 

Cheers,

S.
