Sd.Kfz.171 Panther G Early Prod

Cyber Hobby 6267

This is the Cyber Hobby Panther G with ATAK Zimmerit. You will note the additional armour sheets on the turret roof. I blogged this in 2008 and had a whole lot of fun with it - sadly it was built before I got the super-detail bug. I hope that my painting skills have improved slightly as I fear I over-did it on the washes, either way every build is a learing experience. The Verlinden dry-transfer Fusilier decal represents a Panther from PzRgt26 of the Italian Front in 1944 but can also be found (strangely enough) on an old Tamiya Brummbar decal sheet.

Thanks for looking!

Tamiya Panzer III Ausf N with Voyager upgrades

Built in 2010 this little beauty has a few grey styrene Dragon spares on it, but for the most part is Tamiya with Voyager. Having just build the DML 6606 kit with Voyager upgrade, I feel that this Voyager upgrade for the Tamiya model is far better.

These four pictures of the Tamiya Panzer III Ausf N show a little jiggery pokery to the cupola and a lot of PE upgrading a la Voyager.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable build, made even more special by the Voyager PE.

I hope you like it!
