This sheet is designed to fit Tamiya's 1/48 scale Panther D kit# 32597.
Two styles of zimmerit are currently offered, both indicative of field applied patterns: "Horizontal" style similar to the style applied to Ausf. A tanks by the Demag factory and "Diamond" pattern as seen in period photographs.
The photos of the actual sheets show the difference in patterns.
Included are two sets of turret sides and an mg mount bulge for people wanting to convert their kit into an early Ausf. A version tank.
Also included are "extra" pieces for further customization of parts like fenders, exhaust shrouds, or schurzen. Complete application instructions are included.
The etched paper offers several advantages over other products: No special clippers, files or bending tools needed. No priming for paint is necessary. No special glues or epoxies required. The zimmerit easily attaches to the primed model with ordinary white glue(PVA). No sanding to thin parts is needed. The paper is easily modified with a sharp blade to simulate battle damaged areas or specific patterns around tool mounts. This feature allows for complete customization of each tank project.
Use the drop down menu to specify which pattern set, or mention it in the notes when your place your order.
