A little bit of weathering. Perhaps there's hope for FOV.

Actually, the little bit of mud and weathering is what I did after recieving this piece. The original FOV pantheer had no weathering what so ever. :cry: :cry:

I am starting to buy the older releases as their prices will probably hike when collectors see the difference in weathering between the new and old releases. :)

^ This.

If the older models are still about the same price as the new repaints, then it only makes sense to buy those instead and get a bit better quality.

The older releases also have a larger variety of diorama stuff as well. :D

Way to go FoV! Another factory-fresh paint job. Those tankers must wash and detail the Panther every day! :roll: :roll:
