The "Ambushing Panther" work: Dragon 1/35.

This is a Panther  Ausf. G early production, a nice kit from Dragon. Assembled almost from the box, I only added the metallic towing wires (and the field camouflage). I applied a soft modulation on the base paint, a medium weathering and a lot of splashes. The idea was to place it in a diorama next to a wet road with other vehicles passing by. A project too huge for such a lazy modeller...
Maybe someday.

    1. Hi Stefaan,
      The camo net is from Verlinden. The branches are from a company that no longer exists. I think that Woodland Scenics or other scenery company may have something similar. You can also try in flower shops, they have some lyophilised weeds really nice for dioramas.
