Well, this is my first article so bear with me a moment.
This project took me one and a half a month. Kit is from first batch so metal gun barrel is include, also I bought movable runnig gear with movable tracks. Great kit but not for beginner[...]
This is the Tamiya 1/35th Panther G on the Miniart base. It's an attempt to recreate the latter stages of the Battle of the Bulge, when the Germans had to retreat, abandoning much of their equipment due to lack of fuel. I went for the abandoned [...]
