Russian Panther

An unusual start for the new year with the completion of my entry to the SOGG charity build. This year's "Paint your wagon" subject was "captured" so I took an unloved Airfix Panther from my sales box and gave it a Russian paint scheme and a couple of crewmen

Neat! Its strange to see a panther done in Russian green. I wonder if they had an adequate ammo supply for long term use?

Great model - I wonder if the troops that operated such captured vehicles felt nervous that they would be fired on by their own side? You would think that experienced troops would recognise the silhouette of a vehicle before they looked at any markings!
