Ausf. G Late Production
Tamiya, 1/35 scale
|by Chris Wauchop
This is Tamiya's 1/35 scale Panther
Ausf. G kit finished as a machine from either the 2nd (according to
Concord) or 9th (according to the kit instructions) Panzer Division.
Chris added a number of
after-market accessories to this model.
Modifications and additions included:
detail set 35 024 Panther Ausf. G
Late Model shackeles (R-16) for Panther G
L/70 Gun Barrel with Muzzle Brake 35L-36
TCR01 Tow Cables for Panther
Productions 35001 late Panther tracks
Molds WWII German AFV Periscope Set #1
Although adding the tiny
photo-etched details presented a challenge and was quite time
consuming, the Tamiya kit
itself was almost completely trouble free.
Painting and Weathering
camouflage colours were applied with the Testor Aztek A470 airbrush.
Tamiya paints were used:
The wooden handles of the tools
were painted XF-59 Desert Yellow.
Mud was added using Faber-Castell
Pastel Chalk (9286-179), powdered and mixed with Mineral Turpentine and
painted onto the tracks and the wheels.
Reference used included:
Panzer" No. 4 - Panther and Jagdpanther
"Germany's Panther Tank, The Quest for Combat Supremacy" by
Thomas L. Jentz (Schiffer)
