Hi,
what a great Looking Panther! I especially like the heavy weathering of the lower hull, very realistic.
The Combo Ausf. D with FG1250 is fictional, or have I missed something?
Best regards,
Georg

That wartime image is clear evidence of Allied troops seeing Tigers everywhere ....

Hi Georg! Ausf. D with FG1250 it is not a fiction. I showed the picture of the original Panther Ausf D on which there is a IR-box at the back.

Hi Sergiy,

What the others have said - fantastic build, camo and weathering.

Too true...the caption on the photo reminds me of a documentary I watched once about the Panther/M26 Pershing duel in front of Cologne Cathedral in March 1945. While they were interviewing him for the documentary 60 years after the fact, the U.S. Signal Corps cameraman who shot the famous footage of this duel kept referring to the German tank they were discussing as a Tiger. I guess in the moment he had had more important things to worry about...
