AIRFIX PANTHER AUSF.G 1:35 SCALE

On 3rd April 1944, M.A.N. reported that it had successfully completed trial production runs of the new Ausf.G chassis. M.A.N. built about 1143 Panther Ausf.G tanks between March 1944 and April 1945. Between July 1944 to March 1945 M.N.H. constructed 806 Panther Ausf.G tanks. Daimler-Benz finished 1004 Panther Ausf.G tanks between May 1944 and April 1945.
There were some minor differences between factory built tanks. M.N.H. fitted a cast steel Gleitschuh skid shoes instead of a rubber tire return roller behind the front track drive sprocket. The other two factories continued to fit rubber rimmed return rollers.

A1365 AIRFIX M4A3(76)W, BATTLE OF THE BULGE 1:35 SCALE

AIRFIX M4A3(76)W, BATTLE OF THE BULGE 1:35 SCALE

The Chrysler Corporation began producing the M4A3(76) in March 1944. Many of their first units arrived almost simultaneously in France & Italy in August 1944. It, like all the Shermans saw a steady flow of minor improvements, and versions of this tank with HVSS (horizontal volute spring suspension) started arriving in December of 1944, just prior to the Axis push into the Ardennes region, and would become increasingly common from that point on as replacement tanks entered the combat zone. These tanks were very well received, the Ford GAA was a very good engine for a tank in the Sherman's weight range.

The low RPM the motor matched the existing gear ratios in the transmission, and the motor mor than a match for the stresses most operations put it under. Once the HVSS suspension versions began replacing previous tanks, this really became the ultimate Sherman. The French 2nd Armored Division received a small number of M4A3(76)s just prior to their dash to liberate Paris. They were probably the first to use this model in combat.

MIG4529 The Weathering Magazine Issue 30: ABANDONED

The Weathering Magazine Issue 30: ABANDONED

Magazine, Soft cover, 72 pages in full colour

The Weathering Magazine is the only publication completely focused on the most enjoyable and effective painting and weathering techniques for finishing scale models and figures. Our contributors will fuel your imagination and provide the learning experience you need to explore the limits of your modelling aspirations.

The latest issue of your favourite magazine is a real treat for fans of extreme weathering with a focus on abandoned vehicles, aircraft, and Mecha. This wildly popular subject provides the opportunity to showcase multiple weathering effects accumulated in different conditions and varied environments over long periods of time. Abandoned machinery is a great canvas for learning and practicing to expand your knowledge of weathering effects and techniques including rust, chipping paint, and streaking effects. In “Beast in the River” which shows extreme rust and paint wear on a T-55 abandoned in an Afghani river. With “Radioactive Rust” you will be shown how similar effects accumulate in a less humid environment as a 1/72 Zil 131 is left to rot in the contaminated city scape. This article also demonstrates how nature slowly reclaims not only an abandoned vehicle, but also its surroundings. In another unique example, an AMMO T-54 is used as the basis for an abandoned tank on the High Way of Death, exposed to extreme dry and hot conditions. The “Derelict” article portrays an abandoned T-33A with extreme weathering not just on the exterior but also inside the rotting interior. With the abandoned “MSN - 03 Sazabi” you will see Mecha in a different way. This incredibly popular genre is often depicted in a clean anime style of painting, this robot has been left exposed and pilotless to accumulate extreme rust and dust. As it forms the focal point of a diorama it also shows the effect of the Mecha's destruction on a nearby structure. Finally, “Sweet Retirement” shows the effects of time on an abandoned Chieftain not lost in battle, but instead left on public display without any maintenance or upkeep. With each article you will discover tips and techniques that you can easily transfer to your models to radically improve your finished projects. Whether a beginner or experienced modeller, you are guaranteed to be inspired and learn from this issue.

The Weathering Magazine explains all featured painting and weathering techniques with detailed "step-by-step" articles, showing you how to perform each technique as illustrated through high-quality images and concise descriptions from some of the world's best modellers. This eagerly awaited new issue of TWM is sure to be a collector's favourite, each page filled with useful techniques and every article a learning resource couched in inspiration for all genre and level of modeller.
