PzKpfw V PANTHER Modelik 27/10 (Paper model)
Posted by Kordian on Saturday, July 28, 2012 4:38 AM

Hello there!

Been working for a while on my Panther from Polish paper model publisher Modelik.

Great model and after 5 year long hiatus from paper models with this beauty passion came back with double strength. 

Here is what I come out with, enjoy.

I'm intrigued by those interesting Polish paper Panther kits after viewing this website:

 Kartonbau.de - Alles rund ums Kartonmodell

Panther IN CUT /1:25/ 

http://www.kartonbau.de/forum/index.php?page=Thread&postID=293044

Where did you buy the kit and , if purchased from Poland, how did you pay?

( provided you live outside of Europe ) 

I've not purchased anything from Europe in decades and am now very much a newbie where PayPal / eCard / currency conversion options are concerned.

I've only recently set up a PayPal account.

Thx guys for taking interest.
This model I've got from my dad. He is one of the biggest paper model publishers in the world. His business is in Poland. www.modelik.pl
There you can see all the models and see payments conditions. He sends worldwide and I don't think he charges much.
Great models! Serioiusly. And if you're in the armor and vehicles ill recomend checking out models by Waldemar. If anything I can help with transaction.
Regards
K

thread.

I was wondering where I would find those.

Those completed tracks look excellent !

As the 1/25 Tamiya Tiger I has incorrect drive sprockets and oversize tracks, perhaps the laser cut link kits can be adapted to a reworked kit suspension.Hmm

I look forward to seeing more photos of your work.

thx for reminding me of that link. I have seen it before, but not really tried to look in there for technique or hints. Ill stick to the mantlet ive got, as model is 99% finished i wont be messing with it ;) even tho it might be incorrect. its still a model and a mistake can happen.

Like i've said before, the tracks were very hard and time consuming, but the effect is great.

And this is how it looks like on the tank:

Here You can look at my Tiger I . I use workable  hard plastic tracks from Vs.Unfortunately pics of the track only on repainted Vs model .Tracks looks much better and you have choice -early or late version to use.

The night vision device FG 1250 looks very good, after assembling. lots of small parts make it look close to original.
