Indeed brilliant Leo!
I totally like the scheme....that is always one of my biggest choices to make: pondering over the possibilities of colours (and decals for planes too).
In fact it would "force" me to make a second model if the choice is not so obvious.

(I was "hunting" for a KIng TIger with a special scheme for over a year, visited imo all possible suppliers because it was "out of production" so perhaps a limited model. I know I could just get a scheme and throw it on another and create it.)

Love the Jagd Panther and the idea behind it...the bigger gun (King Tiger gun) and high speed made this thing a very dangerous cat.
I have also a Jagd Panther and Jagd Tiger, both Dragon, and intend to make them together side by side.

Following on from Normandy build on another irish forum it seems to me that as regards german mid/late war camo the rules are there are no rules .Reports of red brown or dark green 'paste' being thinned with everything from petrol to urine and roughly applied 'in the field' on top of the desert yellow with everything from mops to straw!!!As a formerly mostly aircraft guy its disquieting not to have 'official' diagrams of the 'proper' camo scheme !The later the in the war the more slip shod the application culminating in this sort of 'cack'!Opinions?

Some of those squiggly colour lines are damn hard to replicate on a model.
Anything goes but I have my favourites....these are not.

If you just throw it on it is easy to overdo it and it turns into a toy.
So it remains a challenge.

Leo, that's an absolute cracker! Love the weather job you did on this one. And you say it's a practice one! :shock: Well I can't wait to see the one you practiced for then :D

Great job! Thanks for sharing.
