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.

I just took a look at mine. It looks like the pins held, but they look a bit rough. When I build tanks I leave the drive wheels off until I am ready to put the tracks on. This way I don't have to stretch them as much and put stress on the joining pins. It does not always help, but most times I think it does.

yea i tend to do that too, but on mine even then is was very tight. probably just got a weird one.
had a tamiya Merkava where all the pins were warped and had to staple as well. think its just bad luck.

On several of my models I used sewing thread to tie the tracks together, it also takes paint well. I have stapled some also.

i have herd about the thread , but never done it myself. on the panther i just painted the staples and they are almost 100% hidden. ether way i really hate doing it.

I see you put your 9th SS Panzer Division Hohenstaufen water slide upside down, just like I did on my Panther. It's not your fault, they put it on the decal sheet wrong. You can check the 9th Panzer Division here [link] and here [link]. :nod:

lol damn i did! after all that work to make it historically accurate!
anyways thank you tho for the heads up

BTW you did the same Tamiya right? was your track all kinds of a pain. mine was a bit too small and really had to be stretched. plus the pins were bad, so i had to staple the whole thing together.
anyways this was by far the worst tamiya i have ever build(still good) but was kinda underwhelming.
