Academy -Pz.Kpfw.V Panther Ausf.G Tank, Scale 1:35


In 1944, production of the Panther tank shifted to the G version (Ausf.G) which incorporated a number of design changes learned from combat experience. The most notable differences include a wedge of steel welded to the bottom of the gun mantlet to eliminate a shot trap where rounds would deflect off the lower portion of the rounded mantlet down through the thin upper armor of the hull; elimination of the driver's vision port replaced by a periscope overhead, and simplification of the hull's armor plates.

Academy has released this completely new-tool kit of the Panther incorporating all of the various design changes that were in effect by war's end. This kit is actually Academy's first Panther kit in 1/35 scale (you might remember their older tooling of the Panther in 1/25th). The kit is molded in tan styrene and presented on eight parts trees plus four trees in black styrene and one fret of photo-etched parts.

Among the features and options:

  • Lower hull is a multipart assembly with internal bulkheads for strength and alignment
  • Detailed suspension arms
  • Detailed road wheels and drive sprocket
  • Link and length track
  • Detailed rear hull with late-style exhaust
  • Nice selection of stowage and pioneering tools on the hull
  • Photo-etched grilles for the engine deck
  • Optional side skirts
  • Detailed commander's cupola
  • Tiny grab iren rings/steps for turret sides
  • Choice of rounded mantlet or wedge-bottom mantlet

The instructions are the usual nice CAD-type illustrations to show how everything goes together. They also include six five-view color profiles of late-model Panther Gs, each with a different and distinctive camouflage pattern.
