TAMIYA PANTHER AUSTF.D 1/48
Great news for modellers of smaller scale armour, as the compact 1/48 Military Miniature Series welcomes the Panther Ausf.D, the very first variant of the highly-rated German tank. Developed partly in answer to the Soviet T-34, the Panther offered a complete performance package, with an imposing L/70 7.5cm gun, sloped armor for superior survivability, and excellent manoeuvrability. Around 840 Ausf.D Panthers were produced between January and September 1943.

A die-cast hull gives the model a realistically weighty feel.

Parts are included to recreate Schürzen side armour, and plenty of accessories like tool racks, gun cleaning rod case, smoke dischargers and more.
