This is the Panther D premium edition from Dragon, finished OOB. I tried to depict Panther D 745, from 7./Pz.Abt.52 as it would look before its capture by the Russians. Having found a couple of photos in Polish magazine, showing it at the time of its capture and later at the display in Gorky Park in 1943, I decided that this particular vehicle would look nice next to my Tiger I and Ferdinand.

It was painted by Tamiya acrylics (thinned by Tamiya's lacquer thinner). All detail painting was done by Vallejo. Weathered by Mig and AK products.

It doesn't look like it came from a scrap yard. Nice subtle weathering and not alot of paint chips, etc. A couple things though... The interior wouldn't be pure white. Maybe filter it to a off white. The road wheels would wear on the tracks and I don't think the outer face of the track guide horns rubbed to a shine. Nice looking Panther. PK

I will alter the interior color a bit. I guess a thin coat of filter will do it.

For the road wheels, I definitely need to "season" them a little I had left the outer wheels unattached (but painted) until the very last moment and I simply forgot to do it.

For the guide horns, I remember seeing some photos showing them with some shine. They seem to be in contact with the insides of the driving wheel and rubber insides of the outer road wheels. Maybe I overdid a bit. I definitely will look into it.

Thanks for the comments...
