The kit is Dragon #6428 Panther D with Zimmerit. John built it straight out of the box with no after market added (it didn't need any!). The decals are by Echelon, camo is Tamiya acrylics with the tracks painted with Floquil RR black with some white added to make a good dark gray suitable for that application. It represents a late model Panther D a couple of months after Kursk (the Panthers in that fight did not have zimmerit). The late "D"s had some improvements that the early one's that were used at Kursk did not have.
