Your usual fine work!

I notice you chose to close up the winch compartment. Did you find problems with the interior or was it an artistic choice>

Beautiful work; I'm going to save these images as reference material when I finally get around to mine. One question though: the worn-until-shiny inner wheels' rims: have you actually seen this effect anywhere on a tracked vehicle? I had no idea that the Panther's track's teeth could rub on them to that extent that they'd be shiny & worn.

Here is it starting to appear on a almost new Panther

I do think however that the width of the shine is too much on the model and it's gone onto part of the rubber tyre.

Very nice ! Weathered but still a running machine. Really appreciate the wear on road wheels as I know how hard it is to do !
A tank won't turn if the teeth have no contact with the wheels...

Perhaps I am missing something here but note in the photograph of the real Panther; it is only the raised ridge of the inner road wheel that has been worn by the track teeth. On the model the silvering appears to extend all the way onto the rubber tyre of the road wheel which I suspect, in reality would not happen.

However, excellent work all around. Well done. I love Berges!

Not any problem in the winch section. But only a my building choice. Thank you.

Wow!!! Nice attention to detail. I especially like the mud buildup on the vehicle's rear spade, the on shovels, and of course on the running gear. I also like that tight winch cable — actually looks loaded. Well done!

Cheers!🍺
