Panther D

Manufacturer: Revell AG.

By Mark Shannon

I scratchbuilt spare track racks, smoke dischargers, turret hatch and pistol ports, rear deck details, and made my own tow hawsers from wire. Hatch handles and lift loops were added from wire, as well, and the sighting telescope was changed to a binocular sight. 'Organdy ribbon' was used to make engine deck screens. I swapped the rear idler with that in the Jagdpanther kit, since that one is more appropriate to a D/early A (and it made a late Jagdpanther more accurate, to boot), and moved the jack from the vertical position between the exhausts to the horizontal early position. I cleaned up the tools - reshaping the blade of the shovel, in particular.
