    :grin: Hello friends:

    Here is my Panzerbeobachtungswagen (artillery Observation vehicle) finished in June/2006. The kit is of Gunze Sangyo. The construction was "out of box" (except the antennae).

    Notes about it:
    * The gun is a wooden dummy, just a placeholder so it's harder to pick it out vs. a regular gun tank.
    * this version was identified as "Entwurf 3" (third proposal) for an Artillerie-Panzer-Beobachtungswagen Fahrgestell Panther in November 10-11/1942 and the test project was developed in 1943.

    The construction of this tank was simple, not many mud as another Observation armors. Regarding the marks not was carried nothing.

    Regarding the tracks:
    * I painted with brown of Tamiya
    * Applied brown pigments mixed with thinner of Gunze Sangyo
    * Finally, dry brush with aluminium of Tamiya

    I hope you like it.

    :D Thanks friend: Regarding your question, I applied washes with oils mixed with turpentina spirit, Mr. Surfacer of Gunze and pigments.

    You can see the process of the construction to weathering at: Panzerbeobachtungswagen

    thank you, thank you!

    Well rudolfo I don't think I need to add anything more about the GB. Just keep an eye on the threads GBIII and possibly GB IV soon for more info.

    Next to that I really wanted to say that you've made an awesome model there. I like that panther an awful lot. I sure hope it's 1/48 scale or smaller, otherwise I can quit working at 1/72 right now! :wink: :lol:

    :D Thanks for your kind comments friends!. All my works are in 1/35 scale; I have not tried to work with smaller ones.

    I will take a look to the topics you mention, thanks again!
