Very nice Chris, I have 3 Tamy Panthers myself and am keen to turn one into an early or mid. I see MK Modellbau do the early exhausts but do they do the shrouds to go with it or did you build them yourself? Also mate, I see you got one of there Panther antenna's, I have been looking for a semi accurate one that's not from Aber. Are they a good buy?
Cheers, Brendon.

Thanks Wobbly and Brendon,slowly chipping away as time permits and bits arrive had it under the bench for a while had to finish a few over builds.The exhaust shrouds I had to make,the aerial has a rubber base/isolater when the rubber base is glued the aerial is still removable and also got their loaders hatch whitch is fairly detailed even has a working catch for when it is left open.(took some hopefully better pics.)

Good stuff Chris, the hatch looks great. Might have to get me a few of those antenna's, is it just a matter of removing the molded on base that's on the upper hull before fitting them? Cheers.

I haven't got up to doing the antenna yet but looks like you'll have to remove the moulded base to get to fit.

Done some more work on the Panther added some welds on the commanders coupler and sight post.Got some bearings for the road wheels aerial mount done and a few over bits.Turret has been painted and a couple off washes done as well as road wheels modified the periscopes.had to remove some details off the turret roof to suit earlier Panther G.
