Looks Great, I like the Welds and the primer. Waiting to see more as I've got this kit in the stash and hope to do a Kursk Dio soon.

After a few hours of work the tracks are built
After that the metal barrel and gun breach was built and painted with Mig's Cremeweiss i also made a muzzle brake cover using Tamiya epoxy putty and finally fitted the resin Copula.











Back soon Cheers

Looking good. I like your welds. They look more substantial than melted sprue welds.

Good tip!

Finally got the lower hull construction and details added and primed with Mig's One shot primer it's my first time trying the primer and i love it no smell and self leveling and has dried nice and hard.

Very interesting project, people often forget that the Panther at Kurst were sent directly from the factory so they had no time to rust or fade the paint.

As you say, the hard part is to make it new but real. Good luck!


Cheers yes they were all new and i will need luck
