Posted: 9 April 2014, 13:30 Panther A / Tamiya / Normandy '44
For your consideration I present my Tamiya Panther A.
Too many alterations to list. All my standard type things - ABER tool set, Eureka tow cables, resin cast vision blocks, hand made OVM etc etc.
Big items were -
The Hull & tracks are from the Tamiya Kit
The turret is converted from the Academy Panther G kit
Running gear is from the Academy Panther G
Rear stowage bins & jerry can racks made from scratch using Aluminium sheet & Brass strip
Coax MG-34 is a Preiser piece. Gurtsack made from scratch, and ammo is cut-down .50cal
- ammo belts from a Trumpeter 1/24 P-51. Mount made from scratch using brass rod.
Zimerritt created using Tamiya basic-type putty & a knife.
Side skirts and fenders made from scratch usimg aluminium sheet (ABER hadn't released their photo-etch set kit yet when I started this build)
Sorry for the crappy photos. My photography is not so good.

What can I write more ... it's another great model! Beautifully made and no major observations. My congratulations!
I really like all of your German models of tanks, the more that is my favorite subject.
If I ask you, why not have a relationship with model construction Panthers? Too bad that it's not here...
Congratulations once again
I cordially greet
