Steve,
That is one beautiful Panther. I'm curious how the LED's work for gun flash? Does it have recoil as well? You've really upped the bar with the details on this one! Is this a keeper or built for a client?

Excellent work on the Panther, I agree with Bob you certainly have lifted the game with this build, looking forward to seeing it at the weekend

Hi All
Thanks for the positive replies.
Bob, the gun has both flash and recoil that work together with the sound unit.
Regards
Steve

That is gorgeous.

Can you tell me what type of paint you used, please?

Hi Brian
Thanks, glad you like how it’s come out.
The tank is painted using Tamiya and Humbrol paints, the base coat being Tamiya TS3 and the weathering has been done using various Humbrol paints and oil washes.
Regards
Steve

Turned out very nice, it's a shame we are hardly likely to see this again it would have been nice to have a number of Panther all together

Thanks for the pix Steve, I was hoping to at least get to offer a bid on it? :D :D :D Any more pix of her? Sorry to be greedy - but you build a masterpiece, get her 95% finished then we never see it again. LOL. Its too nice not to share? I know its a pain to post pix.

Did you take off the steel tracks? Looks like the original tracks on her - perhaps for transport.

Best regards,
Bob
