Just for the heck of testing-out the new forum, and to rekindle some old memories…
This was my first box opening upon my return to model building approximately seven years ago. Paid waaaaay too much on Amazon, but at the time, who knew? I recall the excitement and nervousness of beginning a Dragon kit with a very hefty parts-count! This was also one of my earliest attempts at weathering using chipping techniques as I bounced between three models so I wouldn’t totally ruin this one. Looking back, it’s still a bit heavy-handed for my current taste. All said, this is still one of my favorite builds.
My first ‘Magic Tracks’… Oh boy!
Vallejo Red Brown Primer (73.605).
Vallejo Desert Yellow (70.977). Now for some picking/scratching/rubbing/scrubbing and a mishmosh of washes and hand painted rust…
… followed by Vallejo Light Slate Grey Pigment (73.113) applied to the running gear.
… and now for some towage… 5cm Pak 38.
Towing a 7.5cm Pak 40.
Thank’s for having a look!
