Panther Ausf. G

Or, specifically:

Germany 1/72 German Pz.Kpfw. Panther Ausf.G (Sd.Kfz. 171)

I've not touched it in months, and longer, as my "shop" is currently in transition.  To do: decals, clear-coat, finish diorama, etc.  I have left spare tracks off and made other decisions along the way, such as _not_ gluing mantlet, instead, designing a mechanism to make it movable, _not_ gluing crew hatches (as you can see in pics).

The paint design is based on the Bovington, England Panther:

This model was done 99% by hand -- and that means mostly paint.  Only the base white trim was sprayed.  I spent waaay too much time hand painting, touching-up, sanding.  I have since gotten an Aztec spray gun which should make the next one much easier:
