Default Panther paint

Hi,

This Panther belonging to the Cadman brothers was painted and numbered as shown above in 2007 whilst at the War & Peace show in the UK.

The numbers, their positions and font style were suggested by myself and painted by members of the reenactment 2nd Battle Group, to match their 1st SS unit makeup, the markings are as seen on WWII photos of Panthers of SS Pz Rgt ! (LSSAH) in Normandy.

Regarding some other comments, this is a Panther Ausf A whose production stopped in approx early 1944, when the Ausf G went into production until the wars end. All the "British" Panthers captured at the wars end in the MNH factory were G models from their then current production.

This Ausf A is ex-French Army MAN manufactured vehicle of February 1944, one of many refurbished by AMX after the war and used by the French Army.

It was recently seen being refurbished on Combat Dealers before going to the Cairns Museum in Australia.

cheers lennard

Bruce's Hetzer :

I hope that was a Moskovitch or so, not a real Opel?

I think it was very well done - except for a few things that kill it . . .

That's not my gripe about the film - and the more I watch it, the more it grows on me. Of the few things that just don't sit right, one has got to be that silly march-to-the battle stuff at the end. Perhaps things like that really happened - but for me, it comes off way too much like "SS Fan-Boy" stuff . . .

And again

I asked Kirt kat about the panther and he confirmed it was touched up in the shop.

Anyway this his painting work.
Way better than an air fix kit.

Owen,


Thanks for all of these great photos and an "inside" look into the film. I have to say, this comment:




"Erica is my wife so I got to have some fun putting her name on the turret"


Made me laugh!


Thanks again!!


TK

Sorry you feel that way.
The SS song and music was recorded at the ABBY Road studios made famous by the Beatles.

A song in a war movie is fun.
The battle of Waterloo has a nice song sang to Wellington.
THe Bridge over the river kwai had the Brits whistling
The Battle of the bulge had the panzer men singing and stomping
Fury has a SS singsong.

Remember its only s movie not a documentary.

Thanks Tom,
She got a kick out of that.

I own it and enjoy watching it - when it first came out I found the last stand scene hard to buy into, but I came to realize it's a war movie, after all, and as long as they don't have Panzer Gray or white painted M48's with Balkan Crosses on them (a la Battle of the Bulge), I can appreciate the realism in clothing, FX and equipment.

Don ,
Thank you.


Talking about the FX.

It was really hard to match the 88 firing.
In wartime footage its usually an over dubbed generic cannon sound.
Sound hunted and hunted and came up with nothing.
Then a film from Norway of all places had a film shot around 1949 with a real 88 firing.
That was copied and processed.
Its more of a crack when it goes off.

We also had a 75mil anti tank gun with 3 rounds of full charge made that was fired and recorded.
I can tell you it was quite the sight when it was fired.
Crack ......then concussion.
Very very loud.
The opening scene of the movie was being shot a mile or so away and everyone on set was " What the F was that "
I got over to the 75 just in time to see the last round being fired.
It was something I wont forget.

The crew book has 2nd armor embossed on the front cover FYI
It’s hard to picture as it’s black on black
