Airfx Panther Tank

The Airfix 1/76 scale Panther tank is a kit that goes back a long way.

By today's standards the kit is not particularly outstanding, it's from the mid 1960s and it's quite basic
Some minor extra details were added such as towing hooks from telephone wire, radio antenna from a strand of horse-hair, and also typical ad hoc "tree branch and bushes" ambush camouflage (that at the same time hides the kit's inherent lack of detail, and a multitude of other sins;.-)

No figures are supplied with the kit.

I left the commander's hatch open in any case and will try and look for a suitable figure from some set of German polythene figures, maybe one from the Lufthwaffe Personnel set
