1/35 Das Werk Panther A late
Well, here I’m straight from Pandemic, straight from Serbia… Thank God that we are doing well and good with this menace. in fact, I really don’t know what to think. Medias are saying one, politicians, other, doctors are saying third, but ratio say completely different from any other before… Just be positive and get through these hard times. I hope that this post will all of You great people in good health and condition!
I decided to do tank/panzer after some time. I’ve been doing planes for some time, and it was time to rest. I received this Das Werk Panther A late 2 in 1 (without any interior, and prepacked from Takom) some 5 or 6 months before. I was very happy, but I had to order zimmerit, from which I was frightened. I have never before delt with zimmerit add on… I ordered Das Werk/Attak zimmerit and I took one spare Tamiya figure which I received from one excellent man, modeller and friend Milan Tank Krusic (I salute You my friend) from Slovenia!
I don’t want to write anythink about Panther… except THE BEAST! I was whole time listening Uriah Heep’s “Salisbury” album and Marduk’s “Panzer division Marduk” record, strange combination…
The model, parts, decals, zimmerit… I don’t have words in my vocabulary to describe the incredibility of this kit! I didn’t find any problem with kit, EVERYTHING went so good that it was a little bit odd and strange! Every single part was excellent in any way… From details, coming together with other parts… Tracks are molded excellent and the process of putting them together is so easy that I didn’t brake anything on them during the build, painting and weathering! Zimmerit is so easy to glue with CA glue that I was really satisfied!
I made some modifications on cupola, hatches, hinges and connecting rods for spare links…
I painted whole model with acrylics and weatherd it with AK effects, than I used Abteilung 502 oils and Vallejo pigments. Pictures are maybe to bright but I ran out of battery on my Canon and I didn’t want to make another photo session (lazy man). Figure is lightly weathered, just for purpose of showing the siye of this incredible Panzer.
I can only say that this model is higlhy recommended for modellers with experience from level 0 to level PRO. For juniors this is maybe a little bit challenging because of part counts,but its simplicity and greatnest in details is incredible. For pros it can be very relaxing to do.
Stay health, stay good and I hope that this menace will be soon over!
