By the end of WWII, the Luftwaffe had completely lost control of the skies, both in the Eastern and the Western fronts. This meant that one of the advantages their late war tanks had, their thick frontal armor, was rendered useless because they fell prey to close air support planes that attacked from above.
And the top plates were always the thinnest and the weakest. So they came up with improvised solutions like adding extra armor plates in the horizontal surfaces of the tanks.
This little-known kit designed for the Panther G implements exactly that, the extra armor plates -produced to replicate the real thickness- the Germans added to their medium tank to try to make it more resilient.
The kit needs assembly using CA glue and painting.
Safety warning (for any resin kit you buy from us or elsewhere): Working in a ventilated place or wearing a filtering maskwhile you cut and sand resin is strongly recommended, as resin dust is highly toxic and can cause severe respiratory irritation and/or respiratory allergies.
Once cut, sanded and cleaned, you can manipulate them and paint them like any other model, without any risks whatsoever.
We have to prepare each shipment individually as they are ordered, so allow it in 3-4 weeks to arrive in the USA/Canada (to be safe) and 3-6 weeks rest of the world, though they are usually delivered much faster.
