'Armour' from BenitoM: German Kitten in Iron Clad

My submission for the first Bonus Round is this Pzkw V Ausf G "Panther" ready to fight the Yankees in the Ardennes forests.


This is a resin Warlord model with some metal parts;  I suspect is now out of production, being replaced by the new plastic range. A pity because the quality of the Warlord plastics is in my view not very good, I'm inclined to continue my collection with Rubicon Models in the future.

I have chosen the three colour cammo scheme with the discs pattern used (if I'm correct) first fter the summer ´44, widely in the Ardennes and then to the end of the war in April.





This model will be the perfect companion to the small little Hetzer that I posted in the Challenge last year. Humm... I foresee a Chain of Command Ardennes game coming soon...

  10. The camouflage is excellent on this metal beastie, Benito!
    I haven't tried any of the Warlord plastics, but the resin kits are wonderful little kits even if some are showing their age.
