It is a dragon Model’s smart kit panther. Built from April to July 2009.
Removing of the parting line of trank rollers was very hard work. When I made Jagdpanther, there was a large gap between rear armor and upper armor. I will adjust all the panels at once to avoid any gap.
I’m installing the caterpillar. The caterpillar doesn’t neatly fit teeth of the driving wheel if we do not use parts (magic track and runner parts) as being directed by the instruction manual. I put the sign on runner parts with oily magic as understood when uniting them.
A spare caterpillar on the turret was changed the number of sheets for a change. The installation of a spare caterpillar of the bodyside was difficult. I enlarged the hole of the caterpillar and thinly the stopper of the rack because they didn’t fit well.
I finished pasting decals and three-color camouflage. The decal quality of the dragon attachment is excellent. It’s Cartograf’s decal. It’s a very complicated font, but I could get the precise expression easily by this decal.
At last, I finished up the must item of German tank fans, Panther G. There were a lot of malfunctions in the D type that was an initial version. The G type obtains the appraisal of masterpiece tank that balance of offense and defense is excellent.
Since the Jagdpanther which I made before is opposite to the direction of the caterpillar, I’m afraid one of them was misplaced? Each of them has no problem with regard to the instructions. Maybe instruction has a mistake…..
May I take another tank soldier since there were a lot of hatches? It might be natural to make dirty with lots of dust like this since the tank is easily muddy and dusty when it runs even a short distance.
I was anxious that I have not depicted a metallic feeling of the trank roller, and did dry brushing them after all. The dragon’s kit title also commented ” Steel Road Wheels “. That’s an important point. Did the atmosphere change a little? It is self-satisfaction.
I am interested in models of tanks, airplanes, ships, military figures, I build it little by little when I feel like it. I am also interested in the history of war. My starting is Tamiya’s Military Miniature series in the elementary school.
From elementary school through university students repeatedly suspend and restart my modeling, it’s about 25 years of this hobby’s history.
Born in February 1970, I live in Tokyo. From February 2007 I was quietly doing a site called “Miniature-Arcadia”. It is being transferred to this blog with the same name from December 2016. My update pace is uneven, but please come to see here occasionally.
