Panther G Tamiya 1/35th scale


Recommended Posts

Tamiya's lovely Panther G.

The kit goes together with no problems at all.

I added Aber's etch set for exterior details and their etched side skirts.

The figures are from Miniart and are very nicely sculpted.

The panther was painted with Tamiya acrylics and the crew with Humbrol enamels.

Amazing job - well done!! I've got a KT I'm about to start and posts like this are soooo helpful! 👍

 

Quick question (I'm new back to the hobby after a 30 year gap!). You used enamels for the figures rather than acrylic - is there a particular reason for this?

Hi Nige, I use enamels because I find acrylics dry too fast on the brush, where as enamels have more "life".

I also find it easier to dry brush with enamels. 

At the end of the day it is a personal preference as I have seen some incredible figure work done with acrylics :)

 

Thanks everyone for your comments & compliments, they are greatly appreciated.

Very nicely done .... both the Panther and crew. 👌

 

I too find dry brushing with enamels easier, although do use acrylics too.
