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.

Very clever. Girls und Panzer comes to mind, though I'm not an anime fan.

I'd laugh so hard at this, but the Brits actually did paint some of their vehicles pink for desert combat, so this pink panther ain't no joke. It could be legit! :XD:

don't remind me......I already know what I have to do ( the purple viper MK VII)

but I'm doing the Abrams first!!!!!

may give it a 'Caprica' ambush color scheme.

would have loved to do a Sherman Firefly, but since this tank is serving on Caprica, or New Caprica..... I have to do an Abrams tank...

dude, when I saw that pink panther....I nearly had an eyegasm of the colorblindness variety..JOB WELL DONE!

lol it wont be so bad. give it a matt clear coat and it will be fracking aweosme. lol i am thinking about picking up some other weird colors now.

tamiya makes some really nice Abrams, if not trumpeter might make a couple too.

lol thanks again dude! was really happy i pulled it off. at the beginning of the project i was worried at the huge possibility of failure. i mean bright pink, not easy to paint.

oh boy.......

I was looking at the Tamiyas... I'm thinking hard about it-but she's not gonna be pink!..maybe a dark grey with some black thrown in....Caprican Urban Camo I think...I'm gonna watch some BSG to get a feel for the enviroment before I start building


just as long as you don't get lilac with magenta stripes... you're fine. XD

I think you may have forgotten the "white fur piping". Typically found around the outside boarder of the main gun mantle covers.
Not to mention the "sequined tool brackets", that secured all the tools to the hull.

I don't know what you were thinking, with such a blatant omission of very crucial design elements. :giggle:
