My first post in the new forum
The kit is a Dragon 1/35 one and I plan to finish it in the same scheme as the box art.
** The Kit **
** Kit Contents **
This is one of the (now) rare kit with the dragon card still in it. Has a decent amount of PE and Magic Tracks.
I started with the turret first. The mantlet and the gun was assembled first, followed by the rest of the turret. Dragon gives you the option of keeping the vision ports workable, I decided the keep the driver & loader’s port workable and glued the gunner & radio operator’s ports.
Next up was the lower hull. The assembly was pretty straightforward. I opted to keep the driver & radio operator’s hatches closed. Once the hull was assembled, I cleaned up all the roadwheels and various tools and equipment.
Next I painted the turret and the lower hull before assembling the fenders.
I plan on I add a few figures (my first attempt at making them) so I left the turret hatches open.
Once the assembly was completed, it was off to the paint booth for painting the camouflage.
The figures come from another Dragon kit. I assembled them and fine tuned the position of their arms. This has resulted in a few gaps and I plan to fill them with apoxy sculpt soon.
This this how far I’ve reached. Next on the agenda is the weathering and of course, figure painting
Hope to post an update soon. Thanks for looking.
