Meng Jadgpanther Ausf. G11:35
Another great kit from Meng. This will be paired with my Plattformwagen Type SSys for a rail transport vignette. I was torn about how much weathering to apply, thinking that a tank in transit wouldn't be as dirty and worn as something out in the field. So I could have done more to it, but also at times felt that maybe I applied too much. Once I get started on these effects it's hard to hold back. Especially with a canvas as big as this kit. Oh well. I like the results.
This kit was a fun build. Not too many parts considering the subject--with the exception of the160+ 3-piece individual track links--but plenty of detail. You are given 4 optional variants but be careful to follow the instructions as there are many small differences.
