Nice work on the Panther. Too bad a couple photos were out of focus I would have liked to see a better shot of the figure. Great job overall.

Thanks for the compliments and feedback. The Panther is my favorite German tank of the war and I've built the Tamiya and Dragon kits. I've got the Meng A which looks very nice.
Also building a Jadpanther for a France diorama.
Again, thanks and happy building! Sometimes a beer or a shot of Single Malt Scotch doesn't hurt when in the groove!

Really like this, my favourite German tank and period. Beautifully done without going overboard on the weathering.

Dan,

Really nice Panther and base. I hope that my next model looks half as good. Thanks for putting all the work into it so we have this feature to be inspired by.

As with all older Dragon kits, I find issues with the upper and lower hull. The exhaust fans didn't fit well and needed cutting and pasting.
This is the early G with zimmerit

Really nice finish on the camo painting and I like the simple base. I've got 4 Dragon Panthers in the stash and this makes me want to get one started. But, which kit did you use & what made it difficult??

Great job. The only thing I would do would be to add a little more dirt/dust to the wheels and tracks.

Fantastic piece of work! Question did you paint the markings or use decals? If decals what did you use to get them to adhere so well

Dan Holland shares some pictures of his Dragon Panther G somewhere in France, 1944.
