That’s a very interesting camo scheme! Looks good!

I didn’t like the schemes so I decided to get creative, I like the result.
I think I will add some branches, bush , maybe a base. I don’t know yet.
Still a lot to work on.

How was the build of this?
I am wanting a Panther soon, but would like to stay away from Dragon.
Dragons are nice kits, but they can be irritating.

Hi,

The plastic is good to work with.
I had no issues with the instructions, very clear.
Fit was very good.
PE side skirts, metal gun barrel, good decals, a lot of painting schemes.

The only thing I didn’t like was the tracks, single link with 3 or 4 attachments to the sprue, if you don’t mind spending 10 mins cutting & cleaning each single link… that’s fine.
I got that set from T-rex and saved a lot of time.
I think Quicktrack have a clickable set without pins.
But there are a lot of AM tracks to choose from.

It’s a very,very good kit, better than Dragon’s I think.

Nice job! I was just about to ask if those tracks were from T-Rex; I just got some Tiger I tracks from them and they look very similar. I don’t blame you about the kit tracks; I don’t like all that clean-up either. Looking good!

Thanks Colin !
Yes, from T-Rex.
These have 2 pins for each track, one for each side.

The ones for the Panzer I are more fragile, quite easy to break, but only have 1 pin per link.

I started this kit late 2022, but then my bench got a little crowded but it looking good so far,
I need to work on the tools, spare tracks, side skirts.
And finish the tracks.

I forgot to tell you another detail, the boxart of this Meng kit shows some Zimmerit , but they don’t provide it, you’ll have to get some after market Zimm.
