This particular photo etch set from Griffon Model provides a full set of side skirt armor that was frequently seen on late and final model Panther ausf G versions. This set also includes front fenders. There are three full frets of photo etch as well as a small section of .3mm copper wire used to hold together the various plates. This is a 'universal' set and designed to fit either the Dragon, Tamiya or Gunze kits.

Instructions are for both this and the Jagdpanther so you'll find the drawings for the Jagdpanther. However, the way the skirts fit the hull and the assembly instructions are identical for both types. The amount of detail provided in the instructions is first rate and should allow even a relative beginner a good opportunity to provide a quality build. Those who have used Griffon Model sets know how nice they are and this one is no different.

The set is superbly etched and will add a lot to your particular build.
