Hello
I have the Takom Panther D late model (full interior) with Zimmerit; I also have a SS figure set from Alpine (SS Tankers reloading) in full winter garb. Iíve wanted to place these guys next to a Panther and Iím not sure if any SS units used Panther Ds in the winter - Iíve tried looking online and in my books but find lots of Gs, As but no D models for that time of year. Any help would be appreciated.

Also, while youíre here, any comments on that Takom model itself? Things to watch out for? Iíve started the interior and I have found that the transmission is having trouble ďsittingĒ on the floor. Anyone else know what I mean?

Thank you.
Felix

Best what I can think off now is that I can post your question on Axis History Forum. They may know the answer. But I'm not really having the knowledge to help you directly with your question. You could take a look on scalemates.com I believe for the kit in closer detail?

5th SS PzDiv Wiking was in Russia the winter of 43/44 with Panther D's. The 2nd SS was also in the East fall of 1943, but I am not sure if they stayed until winter itself.

Thanks for the info. I'll use it as a catalyst for my new search.
