Saumur Panther G
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

It's interesting they've put on Zimmerit, though I don't believe it originally had any.

large areas covered by Zimmerit have been found on the lower hull walls (the area behind the road wheels). That's why they decided to put zimmerit on it.

I think that's a shame - there are lots of Panthers around in German camouflage, but there were only 2 in FF markings.

Pity, there are too many "factory fresh" restorations out there, just conserving, replacing the missing bits & displaying it with its history would have (IMHO) been better.

I liked the original paint better, why not leave it as it were and just restore it to running condition in original colors....
