Panther A, Anzio, Feb. 1944

Hello guys
I haven't been posting for a long time here, mostly because I wasn't building any new AFV through the months. Today I would like to show you my latest model. The Panther comes from 1 Abt. of 4. Panzer Regiment that was rushed to Italy to fight back the allied bridgehead in Anzio-Nettuno area in early 1944.
Here's the model, dml's early Panther A, with Part PE, karaya tow-cables, magic tracks and alu barrel:















Here's a preview of the planned base:



The model was painted with Tamiya and Vallejo acrylics, weathered with artistic oils and Mig and Vallejo pigments.

Very nice model

but I've some serious doubts about the clean red primer under the chipped zimmerit, even if some well known modelers have introduced since some time this way of representing it ...

I agree. IMHO any chipping under Zim should be grey, not primer.

A very clean build.
It is true that some red primer could be found under the Zimmerit, but in my opinion, yours looks too clean.
Here's some real chipping :

Note that some Zimmerit still sticks to the red oxyde thus creating various shades from yellow to red.
I also find the mud funny, for a tank seen in Italy but maybe I'm wong ?
I'd say dust rather than mud but I wasn't there.
where does your Zimmerit comes from ? home made ?

Hi
Thanks for comments guys.
You know what, I like it red.

Gibsonfender the zimmerit is home made from Magic Sculpt and Greenstuff:


To be honest I don't see anything funny about muddy conditions in Italy. Even in Belpaese you can find mud, especially during winter like in February when it tends to rain...I thought it was obviouse...

Thanks for getting involved.

Hey Radek,
another beauty coming from you!
Do you already have some figures planned for it?
One question, how on earth are you able to get the Green stuff so thin? Every time I try to roll it out, it sticks everywhere. Itīs just too sticky and hard. I would love to hear how you do it as I really like that stuff.

Hi Radek,

fantastic as always!
First I was somehow skeptical about the strong contrast you used on this one. But now I must say that it works pretty good, especially with the muddy groundwork you are aiming for.

Looking forward for your next steps,

Cheers
Manuel
