Nice work on the adhesive zimmerit. Are those track links not workable?

James. Thanks. Unlike the Ausf. D tracks that Tamiya makes, their Ausf. G are not workable (they just look pretty).

Cool, thanks for the info as I have the D set and was curious about the those as i couldn't see any references about them being workable.

Well Peter, I've started a horse for my elefant on the Outono / Autumn 1944 album, that's what i can do for now 😉

Peter Hardy
There were 800 horses Rui, maybe you should make some molds? Nobody will notice if you do two the same!

What? A Mark Felton video I haven't seen yet! Sweet!
1. June, 23:22
Adrian Forest
The Cuckoo video is nice, but it's missing a lot of the detail in other reference sources! Prime example is the left rear stowage bin on that 3D model.
2. June, 06:50
Michael Osadciw
This is a great subject, and gives me a reason to build a more modern Panther kit; lots of diorama possibilities too. Maybe with a Universal Carrier delivering some 75mm ammo for a fun size contrast. I can't wait to see it. Regarding your chipping, maybe you can do just a little Dunkelgelb using a sponge?
2. June, 12:39
Adrian Forest
I did consider a dio with a Universal Carrier, actually! I'd love to recreate something like the shot of them driving along the wooded path from the reference album I've collected for this project. And as far as modern Panther kits go, this Takom kit is excellent. I'd definitely recommend any of their series of Panthers, based on my experience.

Michael Osadciw
Cool. A good subject for my first Takon kit. 🙂

No German markings are visible, so it's reasonable to assume the tank has been repainted from the original dunkelgelb, l...

Photo 3, looks like the crew is enjoying their ride. This is a great subject, I hope you build it!

Ben, the kit is in the stash, just researching the add-ons! The Pathe film made me want to get the late-style rear box, it's an interesting detail the Takom kit doesn't include.
