Panther model in 1/32 scale
|... continued from page 1...
For finishing the Panther a gloss blue scheme was selected. For the blue I used the basic blue color of Xtracolor X121 Gloss Sea Blue. To add some life to the model, a bit a white was added and the moving surfaces sprayed in a slightly different sheen.
Nice decals are provided in the kit for 3 versions. But I opted for a more spectacular scheme with red-white edged arrows on the nose and tip tanks. It represents a US NAVY F9F-5 Panther of VF 781.
The Panther model got its various decals such as stencilling using the Fisher decals which are excellent. However, the instructions on where to put the various stencils are not clear. You get far more stencils than shown on the instructions.
Finally, I added just a little wetahering on the model, limited to some hinge lines with a slight black wash.
After cleaning up , the overall model
got a sprayed on coat of Johnson
This kit remembers
me to the old Buck Danny comic books of my youth and is a very nice addition
to the collection. Highly recommended!
