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.
Finally, I added just a little weathering on the model, limited to some hinge lines with a slight black wash. These were well maintained jets.
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!
