Hi all,

 

My plan is to finish it (like all my builds)as a museum piece.

Meaning fully restored in brand new paint work.

In that case I could do  "The pink Panther" !

I've started,but my camera is acting wierd.

Pictures will follow soon.

 

On the subject of  "museum" painting.

I can go with an overall sand-yellow finish.

Or I can add some kind of camouflage pattern.

 

The many pictures I've seen of museum Panthers all have different schemes.

I guess it's all down to the guy with the paint and brush how they are presented.

 

I shall have a good think on how I shall do mine.

 

I watch the TV show "Combat Dealers" were I get some of my inspiration from.

The build is done.Just some small bits to be added.

 

I decided to paint this restored "museum" Panther in overall sand-yellow.

The tracks are also sand blasted and repainted .

 

You have to put this finish in the right context.

How did you get the tracks to stick?

I use very fine copper wire that I put trough the tracks behind the wheels and twist .

That way the upper tracks get pulled on the wheels.

 Will it get a base of gravel like its at a museum, maybe with a sign and sone people looking around ? :hmmm: :wicked:

Maybe on a big board if I do a lot of tanks.

 

But I did do a 1/25 th scale museum SU-100 some years ago...
