Jacob shares his late war Panther Ausf G with us. The weathering is subtle, yet impressive!

SWEET!! I think that you've captured a good look on the vehicle weathering, damage and such!

I have a really stupid question though-Can anyone tell me what the Jack in the left side sponson box on the rear is actually used for? I assumed that it would be used to jack up a torsion bar, but you see the same object on Panzer IVs and before.

Thank you for the nice words. I bought the Panther book from Canfora, which is simply stunning, and I tried out some of the technuiqes descriped by the modellers. I can't really recomment this book enough, it's priceless, but be warned, it'll make you buy a whole lot of Panthers....
Sandiya: The green color is a Tamiya nato green toned with vaious dust and sand colors. Can't really be more speciffic, sorry.
joeP: The jack is for lifting road wheel arms, when road wheels were damaged, but could also be used on most panzers, also the mk. IV series with leaf springs system.
Best regards
Jacob

Cool thanks.What would the WWII German tool look like to pull the track links together to put a new link in? Or were they so slack that it was fairly easy to bully them into place?
I was on US M-1's and I can tell you the track jacks were a pain in the butt.

JoeP: I actually don't know, but on the German Leopard tanks, it's the same track-jack method than on the M1, so maybe Panthers are the same?
