  1. Amazing result, Marcus!
    Good old Monogram rocks, as well as your excellent skills!

  2. Very sharp Panther - well done!

  3. Nice work, Marcus. That’s one of my favorite kits of all time.

  4. The Monogram Panther was and is a wonderful kit. In some ways, it has stood the test of time. Always elicits memories of watching the “Bridges of Toko-Ri” seeing one of these built.

  5. For us Baby Boomers and modeling grunts its a modeling standard. For the younger generations who discover these kits its a door left open. Great to see a modeling classic see the light of day Marcus. A real charmer of a build.

    Two thumbs up.

  6. You did an amazing job on this Panther, Marcus @mvtb
    Well done.

  7. Beautiful! Still the best 1/48 Panther. Trumpeter and Hobby Boss just don't look right, and the rivets...the rivets...

  8. Great looking Panther, Marcus. A classic kit that still produces great results, as you've shown.

  9. Great job Marcus! One of my favorite Monogram "classics", and you've done a fantastic job on her! ?

  10. Thank you each of you for the kind comments!

    All the best guys!

  11. That’s a cool looking cat! It turned out very well. That Panther is one of my favorite Monogram models. I have two still in their boxes waiting to be built. I wish Monogram had
    Followed up with F9F Cougar & F11F Tiger kits n 1/48 scale.

  12. Thanks Jay!

    Not only robust,this kit has good fitting too!

    Besides that,it is a fast building...why not tackle one right away?

    All the best!

  13. Nice work. The Monogram Panther has never been beat by anyone since in 32 years. Good work on yours.

    If you take that decal sheet and cut the "9" so you can pose it as "6" and then cut up the BuNo so you can do 146464, you can do Royce Williams' MiG-killer that he shot down 4 MiG-15s in back in 1952.

  14. Panther Perfection!

  15. Thanks George and Bob,all the best buds!

  16. Top work. Very nice.

  17. Tks Trachsel,all the best bud!
