I bought this box set as it was available at Hobbycraft for a much cheaper price than the list price last year.
Panther is the common name of a medium tank fielded by Nazi Germany in World War II that served from mid-1943 to the end of the European war in 1945. It was intended as a counter to the T-34, and to replace the Panzer III and Panzer IV; while never replacing the latter, it served alongside it as well as the heavier Tiger tanks until the end of the war. The Panther’s excellent combination of firepower, mobility, and protection served as a benchmark for other nations’ late war and immediate post-war tank designs, and it is frequently regarded as one of the best tank designs of World War II.
The resin and metal certainly fills the box.
There are five Panthers in the box and the hulls and turrets are in resin.
These are clean castings and the detail is very good, the Panthers for example have the Zimmeritt paste and you can see how the where it has “chipped off” has been modelled onto the hull.
Each of the castings is different, with this one there are spare tracks attached to the turret as extra armour.
They are very clean castings and the small piece of flash on the turret with this model was basically all that needed to be cleaned off.
The castings needed mininal cleaning before the next stage of constructing the models.
