Captured Soviet Panther A (Part 3): Finished
How ironic. I finally finish the Panther only to find that the original page can’t be edited anymore! Error 505 or something. Oh well. I’m told image size can cause this general fault and, as some of you have noted, the photos are quite large. My intention with these guides has always been to provide large photos that show the models, warts and all. In future, I’ll try resizing the image to get a happy medium between detail and download :).
Anyway, back to the business in hand. I finally weathered the Panther through a fairly liberal application of MiG Pigments Po23 Black Smoke, Po24 Europe Dust, P033 Dark Mud and Po34 Russian Earth:
On the whole, I’m reasonably happy with how she turned out. The oval decal isn’t quite right, but it’ll do. The zimmerit has turned out rather dark. I might be tempted to use a sepia colour to shade next time I do something like this rather than the dark, almost black, brown of the MiG Dark Wash. I’m happy with the weathering and the tracks.
Communist Kitty done.
