This work was based on a Panther from the 1st battalion of the German Goering parachute tank regiment. The Panther belongs to the battalion commander, major Carl Rossman. The tank has a chassis number 121081.
A small historical reference:
Division "Hermann Goering" - an elite formation of the Luftwaffe, personally subordinated to Reichsmarschall Hermann Goering. Created on the basis of a police battalion, during its existence it was deployed in the tank corps. It was one of the most efficient formations in the armed forces of the Third Reich.

I changed the approach to triplexes, now I glue the front part before painting, then the back paint with metallic and paint it in black, it looks amazing and natural for that time. Remade the mount of the machine gun on the main tower, the Griffon and the rest of them are too thin. Removed unnecessary ones
the welds on the stern. Added to the feed wiring to the lamp. Added additional ground hooks. Camouflage was not easy, and it had to be done through a liquid mask and Scotch tape) Kamok immediately I'll make a reservation not precise. And of course I could not help but give the combat charm of the model in the form of tracks on the tower, shell casings, and so on.
Enjoy your viewing.
