Background, model was assembled in 2012 remained unpainted until late 2020, when being on the forum stoked my motivation.
I felt construction was quite time consuming at 56 hours excluding tracks for basically an out of the box build with customer fender springs & small chains added. In anycase, I’m happy to complete a second new project this year.
An older set of Fruil “clasp” tracks without the wire were used. They were easy to quickly assemble and trouble free. Tracks were burnished with Birchwood Casey Super Blue and sanded light to expose metal. The green armored glass was simulated with silver paint and clear green on Evergreen strip. The Evergreen strip was used because I’d forgot about masking the plastic clear parts in 2012 and didn’t burnish down the edges of the masking tape before painting in 2020! Paint stained the edges of the clear plastic parts according. The the Aber brass antenna is workable.
The unit markings provided by Dragon only had a Panzer Gray/Dunkelgrau RAL 7021 from the 14th Panzer Division of Panzer Group Kleist.
I decided to depict a 24th Panzer Division Pz IV F to go with my 24th Panzer Division Pz III L.
A little tweak tow pinnacle chain & custom fender springs.
On shelf…with two more Pz IV’s waiting for their turn on the work bench.
