Review of the Trumpeter M1 Panther II Mineclearing Tank
Scroll down for more detail and pictures
I actually enjoy building Combat Support Vehicles more that tanks & APC’s, simply because they are so far and few between. They are also very different in their construction, where as tanks can be a bit samey samey after a while.
You can build the model to either have mine rollers or plough’s, so should build it read through to the end for the plough instructions.
Building the hull wasn’t too bad except the normal issue as to the quality of the plastic used by Trumpeter and the back of the top part of the hull had warped, hence why you can see so much tape over it in the video during the construction of the upper hull.
I airbrushed the kit Tamiya acrylic XF-67 NATO green and red brown (XF-64) for the tracks.
I used Revell 752 for the sights and Revell 31 & 30 for the lights. I also used Humbrol enamel 33 (black) for the MG and rubber pads on the tracks.
