1/72 Panhard 178

The Panhard AMD 178 was a French interwar armored car design that started it's production run in 1937. It initially saw service against the nazis in France, North Africa, Holland and Norway. It also fought against the Japanese in the French colony of Indo-China. After the fall of France, production continued and the vehicle was pressed into service by the Vichy government and other axis powers. The German designation was Panzerspähwagen P204,and it was used extensively on the eastern front. For its time, it was a very advanced design that was modified to fill many roles, and was used by various militaries as late as the mid 1960s.

The basic white model was designed in 2003 by Satoshi Yoshioka, of Y's Papermodel Workshop Y's Paper Modelworkshop / Models by Visiters. There are quite a few downloadable white armor models in 1/72 scale, but unfortunately the last site activity was in May of 2004.

I textured the white model using Photoshop. Assembly was straightforward. Despite its small size (@ 1 x 2.5 inches), the kit has quite a bit of detail. The base is from Rawen and Paran.

Very nice. I exchanged emails with SY some years back, when he was expanding his collection. I check his website periodically, but have been disappointed that he has been inactive.

Really nice work, Don! You have certainly made the most of Y's basic model.

Thanks, fellas. This was a fun little project, I got a lot of pleasure out of both the texturing and the build.

Great job Don, with the artwork.
Really like the shadows and highlights on the tires.

I suppose Yoshioka's daughter keeps him busy working his day job.
Maybe when he retires he can rejoin the paper modelers community.

Archive.org to the rescue:

It's the 2nd or 3rd model in the list.

Very nice textures Don. I think that Y's site was the only one that offered an M60 in paper to this day.

Update: I think I spoke too soon. I think Boll Models had an M60 as well.

What a surprise to see this old thread resurrected. I'd be happy to submit my recolored version of Y's Panhard to the download section, but I don't know if it would be allowed. Can an administrator advise?
