PE grills for 1/25th Panther A/D

by: Vinnie Branigan [ TEACHER ]

the set
Another quick look at a set of grills from Aber for an Academy (or Tamiya) 1/25th scale Panther A/D. What you get is one fair-sized fret of photo etch, which contains four rectangular grills for the intake fans, and two large circular grills for the outtake fans. These are really well done, with an excellent finish that really gives that finely-woven look and texture. >/br>
Also included on the fret are 26 'fold-up' bolt heads, that are surprisingly good, and an AA MG34 or MG42 sight, which is a nice touch. Two types of mesh for the snorkel intake are supplied, one with the bolted attachment ring and one without.


conclusion
If I was building a 1/25th Panther................. then I'd need the grills, so recommended, since my options would be somewhat limited, however, as with the set of grills for the Jagdpanther, price would be the determining factor.

SUMMARY
Another must have if you happen to be building Academy's 1/25th Panther A/D.
