Earlier this year I found my stash contained three nice 1/72 Panzers; Dragon Pzkw III Ausf. J., Dragon Jadgpanther and this Hasagawa Panther. I thought a trio of petite Panzers would be a great addition to my collection. This kit […]

Nice kit, typical Tamyia, add glue, shake box, done! Parts breakdown was interesting, track, rollers, drive gear all one piece. Gave me a chance to use Panzer Putty to mask with and it worked great. Didn’t pull off any paint […]
