The Panther was built quite a few years but recently I've been struck by something that can only be called:"Realising that I was crap".
So the Panther was up first for refurbishing, including chipping, dirtying and a base.

As built, nothing special.


Then came the chips

A terrified commander


And calmer one wih one of infantry

A base

And as it is now

Hehe, I know the roadwheel is facing the wrong way but didn't know any better when I built it-next one had it right way.

Anyway, it has reached the stage where I can call it complete.
Enjoy

Tall grass is Noch XL static grass, i also mixed in some shorter for variety.
Tree is premade on also by Noch, should really get into making trees myself.

@suikmoto Karl,

That looks good to me! Great job! Theres nothing like having a Panther crawling through the grass with some little friends covering his six. That tall tree really adds to the scene giving the vehicle and figures an excellent sense of scale. Impressive job on the photos!

Thanks for sharing, hoping to see more of your work here soon.
