Panther V Aufs G 1/16 Trumpeter


Recommended Posts

 
Hello, good morning everyone.

After a while I was finally able to get hold of what I think is a wonderful model, the Panther 1/16 by Trumpeter. I know that modifications must be made and there is the good, the challenge of modifying and detailing each model until you are comfortable with them. In any case, this model does not have to be modified as much as we can think, since if Trumpeter has released an early and late G version, it will be for a reason.

I have seen a multitude of real photos and models and I conclude that the production of tanks in their different versions, and not least in the Panther, is chaos. I refer to the fact that every time they changed versions until the provision of new equipment was normalized, they used equipment from the previous version creating hybrids that ended up circulating at the same time. That is, we find Panthers D with pieces of A and Panthers A with pieces of G, when we do not see early, mid or late versions of the same model.

Therefore it is not unreasonable to think, at least for me, that Trumpeter's version of his G Early is inaccurate. We see how recently the RFM brand has released its Panther G with two different engine bulkheads in addition to other things.

In any case I am not an expert on this topic and I only expose what I have found by searching.

I will show you the bug if I am able to upload the photo:

Cool. I wonder if it will have working suspension like the Old Tamiya 1/16 Tiger I, I built that thing at 12 and it was amazing back then.  I love large scale tanks, I even built an 1/16th M-26 that someday I'll buy some new battery backs and get working again... 

 

 

Anyway! This should be fun to watch

You have the Pershing? I'm big time jealous.

Tienes el Pershing? Estoy muy celoso.

 

 

Yes, I have Dragon Pershing at 1/35. It is a model with several years but of very good quality.

 

 

For now I have mounted some torsion bar on the barge. You have to be very careful with this step since the supports of the bars are the same but some are placed in a different way.

In this last photo you can see the imitation of the welding made with two-component putty.

It was a super fun build, though, a little hard to get everything to fit in the hull!

You can just make it out on the top of the book case. I'll be able to clean it up and get working again, maybe build that 1/32 Zero since this new place has enough space to set up a modeling bench. 

 

(I pulled it down, charged the battery, put batteries in the transmitter, and chased the cats around. It still works, though, after several moves, its beat up! The cats were not amused.)

Very nice M26A1!  That old Dragon kit was a bear, I never finished the one I had.

To a certain extent because it amuses me to detail and build non-existent pieces, especially in the most visible parts of the model. At first I thought to glue the bottom and top of the helmet but now I think it would be worth it to see the work done.
