1/16 Hybride Panther (Wecohe, Tamiya, Atak, SBS Model and ......)


Recommended Posts

HI all,


I started a new tank project, a Panther with a full load of figures from Jeff Shiu!

The hull is made by a company called Wecohe, which ceased production unfortunately!

As you can see below the hull is made up from an alu underside and plastic sheets (in scale thickness)


There are a lot of photo-etch and white-metal details:



A lot of elbow grease, cutting, sawing and finally using sandpaper resutated in a hull taped together:



Next was the Tamiya turret and the Atak zimmerit. The zimmerit needed some altering/adaptions as it was designed for the Tamiya hull, but the fit isn't bad at all:





Then more zimmerit on the hull, and the start of the first details:





And here are a few of the figures:




I hope you like it!


With regards,

Hi guys,


Yesterday I received some BlingBling:


Now I need to wait until my new soldering station arrives.


During my last posting I didn't sit still, but went along with details and painting of some figures.





I just realized that I only have the commander in the photos, sorry for that!


With regards,

Hi all,


Some small progress in the last few weeks!

I did work on the rear side of the Panther.

The exhaust stacks and covers are not yet glued in position.

The left Staukast is a Tamiya version, the right one is a Wecohe photo-etch part which I f*c&d up a few years ago  (the X shaped ribs were on the inside!)

but I could use it for this Panther. Yes, there is a difference in the sizes but I don't care that much, as a figure's legs will be hanging over it.

And of course the p-e makes it possible for some damage.



The latches and lid are a Shapeways offering.


Another Hi-lite was the Rohrwisserstange behalter (or so!)




This is also a Shapeways offering.

And last week another 5 figures arrived, so my set is complete .

So now I have to paint 16 figures, something I really not looking forward to!

But when they are finished it will look really nice!


With regards,

Amazing build, so far!


Too bad there aren't some figures like that available in the form of 1/32 scale bomber crews. I would love to do an in-flight display with my He 111 and or/Ju 88s in the stash!



John, MasterDetails do some great 1/32 luftwaffe crew figures.  I crewed up my revell 1/32 Heinkel he 111 adequately with them!
