Bergepanther - ICM/Dragon 1/35

This is the early version of the Bergepanther(actually a field modified panther) in 1/35 scale. The kit is mostly ICM (Kit#35342), but many parts where inaccurate and replaced with Dragon parts. The photo etching is from Eduard (#35 486) and some scratch work for extra authenticity. The project was based on a photo with no detail to origin or date. I didn't post the photo due to copyrights. All doors open and everything on deck has not been glued down for shipping reasons. MG breach is glued open but can easily be closed. No interior so I displayed model with hatches down. But you can do what you like. Painted in Model Master acrylics and metalizers followed with Georgian oils and Mungyo soft pastels and oil pastels. The Eduard photo etching is very impressive and will make a great addition to any military collection.

PHOTO NOTE:Photography was taken with a Cannon S5 IS digital camera with florescent lighting.
