1/35th Panther Ausf A - Kursk
not my greatest ever build. paint scheme ruined a bit by the over zealous use of a bleaching filter which drained the colour out of it. Shame really, i enjoyed building it up until that.
This is the much maligned, but very enjoyable tamiya Ausf A kit.
Im still really baffled as to why it gets so much hate, sure, its not entirely detailed correctly, and some detail is missing. but its a quick, fun build that can be done in a weekend, which sometimes, we all just need to remind us why we got into the hobby in the first place, before we got all anal about details, and being historically accurate etc. There were no 'large gaps' or 'misaligned parts' as was suggested by one punter on instagram, so either i was really lucky, and got a well fitting kit, of he entirely lacks the skill to build it properly.
This kit is only bad, if you scrutinise it and compare it to the best kits out there, instead of taking it for what it is. I for one had a lot of fun on this.
End of rant!
