Beans -

I'm thinking that with the "International Dateline" coming in to play, who'd worry or could even figure out the timing. I think you've got an outstanding entry. Especially with your "ambush scheme" in 1/72 coming out better than mine in 1/35. The pictures don't show real clearly the details that are obviously there, but the overall look is quite convincing. Very well done build.

wow, and it's 1/72 scale?

your panther looks great.

do you have any fit problems with the die-cast hull?

I would say that you can submit until the campaign leader checks the forum for the first time after the close date!!

Yep, too late. I win! :-)

Seriously though, that looks great. I've never tried anything in 1/72 scale as these old eyes couldn't see the parts and my fat fingers couldn't pick them up even if I could see them! Good luck!

Wow, Thanks for the comments guys, this is my first try at 1:72 and German armor and I think I'm in for more I did have problems with the die cast hull though -the screws dont fully thread down the holes and are too long, so I just ignored the screws and superglued the hulls together. The tracks are also quite short, which caused the sprocket, idler, and some roadwheels to pop out when I fit them -those also were superglued. Those were the main issues and overall I think its an ok kit. Painting it was quite fun- but I always had to remind myself that I'm doing 1:72 not 1:35. :-)
