Pink Panther by enc86 Pink Panther by enc86
Through my extensive research, here is my 1/35 German ww2 panther tank. Every detail of the "Rosaroter Plüschbär" has been painstakingly recreated. the "pink furry teddy bear" variant relied heavily on its WTF power to battle the allies during ww2.

So anyways this was a pretty fun,fast build. in the end i went without the spots or glitter( i know, booo!) but i really wanted it to blend in with my other ww2 German armor in black and white photos.it was overall painted in Model Masters "pink Panther"(no joke)
while this is a tamiya, it is very old and mine suffered from some really bad directions, part fits,track ect..it has by far the least amount of parts of any tank i have done.
i am very happy with the overall model tho, and its mean pink looks quite intimidating on my shelf.

Pink might actually be used in the desert as camoflage. The S.A.S. were known to paint their jeeps pink. However I don't think there any panthers in the desert, by the time it reached the frontlines the Afrika Korps had already surrendered.

yes it is an older tamiya, while aged, it can still be a pretty fun build.

Yeah, lots of work, but very rewarding. I make the sculpts and moulds, EvillyG helps me with the casting, painting and she pretty much takes care of the marketing and other aspects of the biz... thanks for checking out the site, I really need to update it tho LOL

earlyish? i have heard that this kit is highly inaccurate. i would think its the early because mine didn't come with side skirts.

Wow. Taking word games to the extreme. =P

How about you add some fluffy ears? And perhaps the fuel could have some colour in it so that the exhaust gases form the pink tail of the panther! :lol:

Is that an SS unit insignia I see on it?

I can't imagine the shame an Allied tank commander would feel for getting his tank knocked out by this! :D

I could imagine some T-34 gunner looking through his gun sight, seeing this and squinting for a second, wiping sight lens off, squinting at it again, rubbing eyes and saying.

"Comrades are you seeing this to or did I have too vodka last night?"
