Here we have the Panther G late which is the Revell model with some extra scratch-build detail (handles, etc).

MiniatureZone Gallery Archives (2000 - 2006) - Christopher Holland - "Matchbox Sd.Kfz. 232 and Jagdpanther"

This article is one of many articles and gallery contributions from fellow amateur smallscale enthusiasts all over the world that appeared on the old MiniatureZone website during the first six years its existence when there were only a handful of websites dedicated to smallscale models and wargaming. 

If you've been around on the internet since back then, we hope you like the nostalgia, and if you´re a newcomer, hope you enjoy looking too.

Last year I got these two Matchbox kits since I wanted to 'just build something for fun'. At the same time I decided to try out Tamiya's colors (I had been using Humbrol up until then).

These kits built up nicely and with the small base make a nice display.

Airfx Panther Tank

The Airfix 1/76 scale Panther tank is a kit that goes back a long way.

By today's standards the kit is not particularly outstanding, it's from the mid 1960s and it's quite basic
Some minor extra details were added such as towing hooks from telephone wire, radio antenna from a strand of horse-hair, and also typical ad hoc "tree branch and bushes" ambush camouflage (that at the same time hides the kit's inherent lack of detail, and a multitude of other sins;.-)

No figures are supplied with the kit.

I left the commander's hatch open in any case and will try and look for a suitable figure from some set of German polythene figures, maybe one from the Lufthwaffe Personnel set
