Early Panther D Grills
Review by Terry Ashley
This simple update set from Mig productions is for the Panther D
grills as completed in June 1943.
These grills represent the middle production Panther D
grills, the first production grills featured the right hand grill design from
set on both sides of the engine deck. The final production type from September
1943 are the circular type as included in the Dragon Panther D
Consisting of just 2 parts in light cream resin there is only the casting
blocks to be removed before use and virtually no other cleanup required. The
casting blocks cover the entire bottom of the grills and will need to be removed
by sanding on a flat surface using a circular motion. You should check often
that not too much
being removed to ensire the thickness of the grill base is maintained.
will open up as you sand off the casting block, this can be also used as
a guide that you have removed enough of the casting block and of course wear
when sanding resin parts.
The new resin grills simply replace the kit grills and no other alterations
are needed on the kit.
Below are images of the Dragon Panther D hull with the Mig resin
intake grills (top)

The update set was purchased via the Blast
Models website with the usual quick turnaround time and e-mail notification
when the set was sent.
