Arrival of the Steel Panther
Tamiya just doesn’t stop releasing new items for the 1/48 MM Series. We now offer modelers the Panther Type G, widely considered one of the most effective German tanks of WWII. Line the Ausf.G with the Panzer IV Ausf.J and 1/48 Panzer Grenadier figures for a detailed and accurate diorama of late-WWII German military.

About the Panther GDeveloped as a countermeasure to the Soviet T-34, the German Panther tank was produced from 1943 until the end of the war and served alongside the Panzer III, IV and Tiger tanks. The Panther tank featured sloped armor, powerful 700hp Maybach engine and a turret placed far back on the hull mounting a 75mm L/70 cannon. The main gun was even more devastating than its size of 75mm would suggest, due to the large propellant charge and long barrel with high muzzle velocity. Many consider the Panther every bit as effective as the Tiger I, but easier to produce and maintain. The Ausf.G included versions with heater unit installed over the left engine fan, and with lower lip piece added to mantlet to eliminate shot trap.

Main colors used:TS-3 Dark Yellow, XF-61 Dark Green, XF-64 Red Brown
