Here's my entry, which I will start as soon as I get the Puma for the recon GB somewhere near finished. Dragon Panther Ausf D, Kursk, a few extras, Eduard etch, turned barrel, Panzer Art cupola, Mig grills and magic tracks.

I'm so glad you have joined in with the Panther Graeme. Good luck with the Dragon destructions. You certainly have a lot of extras to keep you busy mate. Good luck

I have finally got started on the Panther, now that I'm getting to the end with the Puma.
I started with the hull, the instructions tell you to build up the upper hull with the sponson bottoms (the bit above the tracks) attached & attach it to the lower hull. WRONG! There are flanges on the lower hull sides to attach the sponson bottoms to, which should fit under the flanges, but won't if you have already glued them to the upper hull. Fortunately the glue wasn't set and I managed to separate it, then build it up, but not without a bit of swearing!

I'm in Graeme, I'll sit with Steve and Si as I know nothing of German armour other than there are too many wheels !

Graeme,

Nice looking kitty - now got 2 in the stash - will observe from a distance if that's o.k. ?

Keep an eye on Komrad 453 Race - he's actually spying - the reason why he says there are so many wheels on German armour is because one of his techniques is to crawl underneath or let the vehicle drive over him to look for weaknesses under the hull. :tongue-out3: :tongue-out3:

Glad to have you all along chaps, Dragon instructions are only there to confuse us!
Comrade Race (AKA Sparky Pyromanov) is under observation, an eye on him and a hand on the fire extinguisher!
There are quite a few wheels to go at, but not as many as on a Tiger....
