Panther Ausf. G Late Production

Tamiya, 1/35 scale

by Chris Wauchop



This is Tamiya's 1/35 scale Panther Ausf. G kit finished as a machine from either the 2nd (according to Concord) or 9th (according to the kit instructions) Panzer Division.

Chris added a number of after-market accessories to this model.



Modifications and additions included:

  • Aber detail set 35 024 Panther Ausf. G

  • Aber Late Model shackeles (R-16) for Panther G

  • Aber L/70 Gun Barrel with Muzzle Brake 35L-36

  • Karaya TCR01 Tow Cables for Panther

  • WWII Productions 35001 late Panther tracks

  • Fine Molds WWII German AFV Periscope Set #1



Although adding the tiny photo-etched details presented a challenge and was quite time consuming, the Tamiya kit itself was almost completely trouble free.

Painting and Weathering

All camouflage colours were applied with the Testor Aztek A470 airbrush.

Tamiya paints were used:

  • XF-64 Red Brown

  • XF-59 Desert Yellow mixed with XF-60 Dark Yellow mixed 50:50

  • XF-61 Dark Green plus 30% XF-65 Field Grey

The wooden handles of the tools were painted XF-59 Desert Yellow.



Mud was added using Faber-Castell Pastel Chalk (9286-179), powdered and mixed with Mineral Turpentine and painted onto the tracks and the wheels.


Reference used included:

  • "Achtung Panzer" No. 4 - Panther and Jagdpanther

  • "Germany's Panther Tank, The Quest for Combat Supremacy" by Thomas L. Jentz (Schiffer)
