One of my "older" models. I hope you like it. It was the old Tamiya kit and it got some modifications. It was my first model with "heavy weathering" also.
I must admit that I just about scrapped the idea of the interior during this latest phase. First the torsion bars are much more fiddly than Dragons, getting everything to line up was a bit of a bear. I used toothpicks, which worked well. Next[...]
I have been steadily plugging away at the kit, and still am impressed with many facets of it. One thing though that amazes me is small "misses". For example on the engine deck there are two covers towards the rear. On Late Panthers these are [...]
Ok, the story so far, the RFM Panther G, is in a word Amazing, in three words hard to build. Now that is with a caveat, you just really need to pay attention to the flow of the directions and read several steps ahead so you don't screw yourself[...]

First, Milineals...or however you spell it, God bless ya and your love of beer in cans......No, just no. One of my favorites, I saw it in cans for much less than in a big bottle. I'll try it, the kids at work say "No Rob it's not like the cans[...]
Ok, so every year when my company gives us our bonus, I choose a kit I would normally not spend the money on, a pat on the back for surviving another year (actually I love my company, so surviving is easy). In the past I have gotten 1/32 Tamiya[...]
Earlier this year I found my stash contained three nice 1/72 Panzers; Dragon Pzkw III Ausf. J., Dragon Jadgpanther and this Hasagawa Panther. I thought a trio of petite Panzers would be a great addition to my collection. This kit went together[...]
My first German Army tank build in over 35 years. The tank is of part the Grosdeutschland Panzer Grendier Divison, Lithuania 1944.
