Hi Yves,

Looking good, well done!
The Ausf A is my favourite Panther Ausf but when I bought my own kit from Armortek there was only the Ausf G available.

Please note that Mikes tool racks are for the Ausf G as they differs from the Ausf A at some points.
Not that hard alter them, just great fun setting your own touch to the pride and joy.
All it takes is spending some more de stressing hours :D

Kind regards
Kent
It´s all in the details!

Hi again Yves,

To be honest I was surprised to hear there was no side skirts in the Ausf A kit.
We had them in the Ausf G kit and as they begun using them in April 1943 just before Kursk on early Ausf D, all Panthers after that date had them until the end of the war.
They differ in size as they was made bigger on Ausf G then D+A.

My best advice is get the Panzer Tracts 5-2, all info about them is there.

Kind regards
Kent
