Dave Porter's Panther II
This is a 1/35 Dragon Panther II loaded up with some night gear stolen from a Tamiya late Panther G. The model is painted in an experimental scheme that was not seen on production armor. The idea is to give the piece that “1946” look to it. That is also why I added the girl tank commander. She is part of a duo figure set. A pistol, gauntlets, hat, headphones, mike and SS crest on her tank top (pun intended) were added to make her look the part. The kit was finished in Tamiya acrylics, artist oils, and pastel chalks.
