Hello everyone, lovely morning here in Mid-Wales. The M3 is about ready for a final touch up and decals. A most satisfying build.
Researching ' air brushing for beginners' time to raid the piggy bank. Busy following the various Forum builds.
If I go for the down the 'Air Brush' route.....come the Spring, and it's into the garage with the Panther for a re-paint....Mick

Best regards, Bob

She looks just great Mick 8) The airbrush will drive you mad but you will wonder how you ever did without it!

Good morning everyone, part of my side fence was blown down overnight, small potato's compared to some parts of this sceptered isle.
Thanks for all your kind comments. Just about ready to begin the Panther repaint. I am inspired by the period called 'Operation Nordwind'
I first spotted this event in WW2 on the internet, and while looking forward to build more interest at the 'shows' this year. All events I attend are generally static, so to provide a more interesting display I will construct a bridge of sorts, and drive the Panther up and over the bridge...…
I already have the basic structure built, this should provide some interest and there is always a risk I will inadvertently drive the model off the side :roll: Must check my insurance is up to date....Mick

That's a practice part? Don't think you'll have any difficulty painting the Grant! :D

Hi Mick,

This is a bridge I built quite a few years ago and we still use it at shows today although it looks a bit more battered now. It has been used on several occasions as a repair bench as many members on this forum will know.

Dennis.

Hello everyone, it crossed my mind that the repaint of the Panther should be under Mick's Panther, not Mick's Grant, logic wins every time. My fault. :oops:
