Panther Ausf A - Early
The Panther is the Dragon kit #6160 with Friulmodel tracks, Aber photoetch and barrel, Panzer Art antenna, and Eureka tow cables. It is finished to represent an early Panther Ausf A from Panzer Group Bäke during the winter of 43-44. Photographs show this unit had early Ausf A's without Zimmerit, including at least one with the MG gun ring removed from the commander's cupola and one with "borrowed" Zimmerit-covered side skirts.
The Panther was painted with Tamiya acrylics using the hairspray technique, and weathered with oils, enamels and a few pigments.
The figures are from Alpine and Mantis with replacement Hornet heads.
