1⁄35Jagdpanther with Guts
These are pics of the final product of a project started under the WWII Panther Tanks campaign but did not have enough time to finish by the deadline, as this project took more hours than initially anticipated. So, I thought I would share the final build pics here as a photo feature. Dragon Models Late Production JagdPanther (Kit #6393) with CMK's JagdPanther Driver's Set (#3085), Interior Set (#3084) and Panther Ausf. G Engine Set (#3136) along with LionRoar's JagdPanther Late photo-etch detail set (LAS35016). While the LionRoar set comes with a nicely detailed aluminum and photo-etched brass barrel set I opted for Barrel Depot's since it mated with the Dragon Models mantlet and CMK resin gun easier and without much modification. Interior colors include Vallejo Model Air Aged White (71.132) and Model Color Burnt Red (70.814) while exterior colors are Tamiya XF-60, 61, and 64. Tracks are Magic Track from the kit and are primed and then sprayed with Alcad II Steel and then washed with AK Interactive Earth Effects enamel and then dry brushed with Testors Chrome Silver enamel. Final weathering was accomplished with MiG Productions pigments. The 8.8cm rounds are from AFV Club and are finished in Alcad II Polished Brass. Markings and painting guide are from the Dragon Models kit and according to the instructions this particular model depicts a Jagdpanther from s.H.Pz.Jg.Abt.654 serving in the Alsace-Lorraine area of France in 1944. Overall, the project took approximately 130 hours as this was my first attempt at a full interior. While very tedious, and I did hit a few walls along the way, overall this was a very enjoyable project and I am currently thinking about which German WWII interior to tackle next.
