Here is my 1/35 Scale Panther Ausf G Late Production. Kit is the Dragon Model 6268 with Griffon Models Kit 35001 and friul tracks. Trying to create a late war battle veteran with tri-color camo tone with warn winter camouflage. Tried to implement some lessons learned from input on here as well ask some of Michael Rinaldi's techniques in TankART 1 and 2. Would love your input. I will be putting this on a base with a couple Alpine figures. Base will have some melted/melting snow. My FB page is:https://www.facebook.com/FuzzyForeignermodels/. Cheers!

Excellent attention to detail with the painting of the side skirts with the overlapping areas as they appear. Great weathering throughout! An award winning Panther for sure.

I think it looks absolutely fantastic...sort of like how I want all my armor models to turn out...but I never pull it off.

If you really want a critique, the only thing that looks "wrong" to me is the tow cable draped on the top/side of the tank. IMHO it looks too limp....like a heavy rope....a thick cable would be much stiffer.

But that is picking nits, this is an incredible build!

thank you so much for the input. Not going to lie, your comment made me laugh as I stared at that cable for hours trying to decide its shape and it was one of last pieces on the model. I will tweak the sag. that's one of the reasons I do photos! I see other things as well. Thank you.

Greg,

A wonderful job on your Panther. Technically though, it should have had the sliding shutters on the right side rectangular grilles as they were an integral part of the crew compartment heating system.

Regards,

She could do with a pass through the wash bay because she is filthy. I love it, very well done. Loads of attention to some fine details. Congrats on a fantastic finish.
