Recreate the German Tank Panther Ausf.D with a Tamiya 1/35 scale model kit.
The Ausf.D was the debut variant of the famed German WWII tank Panther. It offered a complete performance package, with firepower from the imposing L/70 7.5cm gun, excellent protection afforded by its sloped armor, and maneuverability thanks to a roaring 700hp gasoline engine. Around 840 Ausf.D Panthers were produced between January and September of 1943, and the first time it appeared on the battlefield was in the Battle of Kursk in July of that year.
- Unrivalled precision thanks to depictions of surface texture such as cast metal mantlet and steel armor plating. Intuitive design offers uncomplicated assembly without sacrificing detail.
- Ausf.D-specific features such as turret-side smoke dischargers are faithfully captured.
- Features realistic belt-type tracks.
- Comes with two figures - one depicting a crewman behind the turret, and a torso figure of the commander inside the turret.
- The three marking options depict tanks from the Battle of Kursk.
