Panther G

In honour Of John Dowman RIP 

Over on the Wargamers` Forum they have "builds" now John Dowman was the founding member o that forum and in his honour they are doing a special build - it has to be a German tank 
  
John and I had many, many jokey conversations about his love for "big Cats" and my aversion for the same.

For this build in honour of our friend I present the first Panther I have ever owned in the 50 or so yrs since I started building models  

Here`s to you John, having a beer and laughing your arse off at my feeble efforts   

We miss you mate

Even more terrain

More terrain

This piece started out as a sample piece of 28mm railtrack, I`ve combined it with the shell crater from the Matchbox Humber II diorama base. 
This creates a crude mined/destroyed section of track

More scratched together terrain

Railway line


Bits of Matchbox diorama base roughly patched together with odd bits of HO railway to create about 50cms of track.

I built the barricade to cover a really bad joint  :D 

Figures for scale
