About Chris (fockewulf)
FROM: DAERAH ISTIMEWA YOGYAKARTA, INDONESIA

I started build model when I was 8 years old. At 1990 I stoped my modeling activity. After took a long break I returned to this small world at 2004 and I wish I'd never stop again.

christianto, beautiful job on your panther. painting, weathering, build are well balanced. the only thing you might want to do is put on the tabs that go on to the ends of the tow cable mounts at the front of your panther. if you look at my panther in my gallery you can see what i mean. once again chris a really nice job. respectfuly yours, nick morgan

Marvelous finish. How did you achieve the chipping effect? You've got realistic light coloring on the edges of the chipping.

i used 2 layers of paint to created chipping. first layer was done with vallejo, i paint lightened base color then the second layer was done with vandyke brown color, in this case i used oil paint. the others random and small chipping was done with sponge method

Chris, Excellent! I especially like the mud on the running gear, the entire vehicle looks realistic. Super job on the weathering and faded / transparent (barrel) paint job. -Eddy

Chris Very nice realistic finish - wish I could produce half as good (and the Panther is my favourite tank of WW2). A couple of suggestions: 1. The blocks against which the front hatches rested when open were, I believe, wood, not steel, so shouldn't show a metalic sheen. 2. As well as the tow ropes, you need to add split pins to the ends of the posts on which the C hooks are hung, which were attached to the end of a short length of chain. 3. It's probably a bit late now, but you should drill out the ends of the spare track links where they do not have track pins inserted. 4. The Germans were very fond of making sure that no bits fell off their tanks, and attached lots of things such as split pins, pins holding spare track links, rear tow hook pins etc with short lengths of chain. Their tanks must have sounded like Santa's sleigh when on the move. Regards Rob
