Girls und Panzer in 1/35th: Platz Team Angler Fish set & Dragon Panzer IV
Model & diorama built 31st August to 18th October 2020
This project had a pretty quick turnaround. Seven weeks from start to
finish. A true lockdown project. Before March 2020 I barely had time to
watch Netflix but once I was forced to work from home part-time I had
loads of time on my hands. I was vaguely aware of Girls und Panzer from
seeing social media posts from model makers in Japan. I found the series
on Netflix and settled in to see what it was all about.
Girls und Panzer is a contemporary Japanese anime extending to one TV
series and a couple of movies. The plot is utterly insane: highschool
girls engaging in non-lethal competition with other schools using battle
tanks. Nothing really makes any sense in the real world. It is utter
fantasy so go with the flow.
I enjoyed it so much I thought I would give it a bash to see if I could
make a model of the victorious team Angler Fish after the battle again
Pravda school. I used Platz figures with a Dragon Panxer IV. Enjoy!
