  1. Picked one of these up on ebay for more that what I'd want to pay. Sadly, Kettenkrad kits seem to be few and far between and it was a bit of a struggle to get one. This should be a nice little project anyway. Exams are coming up, so larger projects that occupy undue desk space may not have much progress on them. You don't get either of the figures shown on the box art, but I was aware of this, and may use the later war German driver figure included. Started by constructing some of the vehicle's internals. So far, it's a typical Dragon kit, with a bit of flashing and some mould seams to clean up.
  2. Dear fellow Britmodellers, this is Dragon's 1/72 Churchill Mk.III AVRE of 82nd Assault Squadron, 79th Armored Division, operating in North West Europe in 1944. I painted with Gunze acrylics and weathered with artist's oils and pastel chalks. The figure is from CMK. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Thanks for your interest! Best greetings from Vienna.
  3. #9/2018 After building a naked ZM 229 already this year, my dad decided to built a dressed one too, using the old Dragon kit. Built oob, only added seatbelts, as usual Gunze and Tamiya acrylics used, done in a fictious JG301 scheme.

  4. Dragon Reissues

    I read on CultMantv.com that Dragon will be reissuing 4 space kits. This is good news to me. Last year when I became excited about real space I soon learned that many of the kits I wanted were no longer available. The kits that will be reissued this summer and also available for pre-order are: Apollo 11 Lunar Module Eagle 1:48 Part Number:DRA-11008 Apollo 11 Lunar Approach Columbia and Eagle 1:72 Part Number:DRA-11001 Apollo 11 CSM 1:48 Part Number:DRA-11007 Apollo 11 Lunar Landing Columbia and Eagle 1:72 Part Number:DRA-11002
  5. This mini-diorama is my first entry for this GB and I thought what better title than the one on the box. Yes I know it shows a lack of imagination, but - having celebrated a birthday a couple of weeks ago - life is too short and getting shorter. Here are the photos of the box and its packed contents. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr The aircraft parts, but no crew figures are included so I will have to rummage through my N gauge figures for something suitable. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr And here are the main deck parts, vehicles and crew along with decals, canopy and a small etch fret. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr With involvement in several group builds, it is going to be a busy few months and there will be some inevitable prioritisation so I thank you in advance for your patience. I hope that this is going to be fun.
  6. Hi all, the Dragon 1/35 MBT-70 is finished, sorry for leaving the WIP unattended but I'd thought I'd concentrate on finishing the kit first. As a new tank builder I have to admit i'm a bit shy on how my build stacks up with the other greats. I will be building my tanks a bit differently than the usual though as I prefer a clean build as I want to focus on the mechanical design of the tanks. Without further ado here are the pics: Title by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 16 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 17 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 18 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 19 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 20 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 28 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 23 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 34 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 27 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 11 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 08 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 07 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 36 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 37 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 41 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 43 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 50 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 55 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 58 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 59 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 63 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 67 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 73 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 75 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 77 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 78 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 81 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 87 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 90 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 91 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 92 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 93 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 94 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 95 by df0084, on Flickr Dragon MBT-70 95 by df0084, on Flickr More pics and larger ones can be seen here: Thank you for looking! https://www.flickr.com/photos/df0084/albums/72157688345201010 https://www.flickr.com/photos/df0084/
  7. model aircraft carrier from Dragon, scale 1/700. It's my first-built aircraft carrier, located on the sea level. Meanwhile, diorama borders are missing. How do you like it ?
  8. Sea vixen faw.1 intake colours

    Hi chaps. I'm building the 72nd scale cyber hobbies sea vixen faw.1 . I'm ready to button up the fuselage, but I need to sort out the intake trunking first. The instructions are rubbish, and apart from a colour call out on the Cockpit (black), there are absolutely no other references made. I've looked on Google, and the walk round section on here, but can't find any images of the intakes. What colour were they painted? All the images I can find of the faw.1 have fod covers in place, and any others are of faw.2 aircraft. Would it be safe to assume the faw.1 are the same as the faw.2? The faw.2 look to have a lip of esdg at the entry, then seem to be black down the the compressor face. Is this correct? Any help or guidance would be appreciated. Thank you. Matt
  9. Hello guys; I recently finished this model. It will be a future part of a Mistel composition: FW190 A8 +TA 154. It's a complicated kit with bad fittings. It's out of box and I used Dousek's riveter. Tamiya's mix were used. Ta154 is on production. Cheers.
  10. Hello, Here is my version of the StuG.III. I was very inspired by the german armor without any camo painting. I'm not sure if any StuG were in the field with this red primer but I love its unusual look. Since it is a Dragon kit and its color is red, I called it "Red Dragon"

  12. I've been watching this GB, getting more and more twitchy, 'cause I wasn't 'in'. I did have a Takom Grant lined up, but, with the vagaries of evil-b and the RM, it never arrived. I'm not out of funds on that one so, only time lost ... Another go at evil-b, and this morning the postman DID deliver - this ... Dragon do two versions of the Sexton, this with CDP tracks and a single piece transmission housing, and another with the older three piece housing and conventional tracks - see @beefy66's build: Opening the - heavy - box, we see That's pretty much ramed full of plastic. I won't do individual sprue shots, Amorama has a review with better images than I would arrange. So far as I can tell, most of the plastic in the earlier version is here, together with some additions. Amoung the additional sprues is a new set of bogies - both of these are in the box: Note that the Ram bogies are heavier and more robust than the Sherman versions. The return roller brackets are a different design too, being angled rather than flat. (As far as I know, there were at least three different styles of return roller used on Sextons)
  13. Thought my dad would build it later this year but he already started the next Horten after the ZM kit. DSC_0008 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0009 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr
  14. Dear fellow Britmodellers, just finished this one over the holidays - Dragons 1/72 M4A4 Sherman in British service, Normandy 1944, built from the box with the addition of CMK stowage. Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics (H304), weathered with artists' oils and pastel chalks, photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Greetings from Vienna.
  15. Hi everyone, really looking to getting this one going! This is the kit, The contents of said box, The extra bits dragon have included in the kit the side fenders are photoetch which is nice and looking at the instructions the road wheels rubber bits can be slipped on later which will mean no masking!! The suspension seems workable and there's a barrel for the 105mm gun which is nice. The only problem is that the way the rubber/vinyl tracks have been stored is that they are stuck on this position. The plan is maybe to do the USMC machine as I like the yellow on green but Ill have a look for decals if not I'll just go for kit ones. Joss
  16. Sexton 11 25 PDR

    Well this will be my entry for the GB Dragons smart kit Sexton and 25 PDR gun Also have the Resi cast stowage set and this will all go with a small diorama base I have an Idea for beefy
  17. Just finished this one, build out of box, only removed escapehatch between the tracks that was wrong. Finished it of as the one on original photo. Cheers Jes
  18. Hi there, I've setup my workbench and found my kit, so if glue and paints are not dry, I should survive my umpteenth comeback to modelling, this time after four years. For this Sherman GB, here's my choice. Dragon M4A3E8 "Thunderbolt VII", which will... not be build as "Thunderbolt VII", but I won't tell you more, at least for the moment. I used to review each kit I build, but not this time, as Terry Ashley does it very well. I've got a few books to help me during thid build. Well, it's about time.
  19. Dear fellow Britmodellers, this is an aircraft modeller's attempt on "Heavy Metal" - Dragon's 1/72 T-34/85 Mod.1944. Built from the box with the addition of metal towing cable from the spares box. Earlier Dragon kits did include this, as well as photo-etch pieces, but their new (orange) boxings contain plastic parts only. It still builds into a very nice model kit, probably the best in 72 scale. I still need to improve my skills on tank painting and weathering, but I hope you like the outcome. Painted with Gunze acrylics (Olive Drab H80), photographed by Wolfgang Rabel. With kind regards from Vienna.
  20. This is my Dragon Panther A which has been shuttling between the workbench & the shelf of doom for over 10 years. I made most of it then decided it needed Zimmerit. I tried Milliput but wasn't too happy with the result. Back on the shelf, fast forward a few years & I bought some Eduard etched Zimmerit but had to remove all the parts I'd stuck on the hull - exhausts, pioneer tools etc. Back on the shelf again. Finally got it Zimmered up & re-attached the parts. I decided to go with a winter whitewhash & decided to replicate the application in the field. I used off white artist's Guache slapped on with a brush then scrubbed with a stiff brush to simulate wear. Sealed & weathered with oils, Mig pigments & ground soil from the garden. Can't say I'm uber chuffed with the results but glad to see the back of it! Figures are Alpine. Any comments or criticisms welcome. Pete Thanks for looking.
  21. When I first joined BritModeller, a little over a year ago, the first model that I posted in RFI was an Israeli M51. At that time I had a few problems with posting photos from a hosting site (nothing to do with Photo Bucket, more to do with my incompetence). When I tried to upload the photos (from Village Photos), all that appeared were links. I didn't know what the problem was (I still don't), but it's not occurred since, so I thought that it might be an idea to post the photos again now and hope for better success. So apologies for doing this twice, but here goes. First, a brief run down of how the model was built. The tank that I depicted was what was referred to as a Batch 4 model. Batch 4 M51s were the last ones produced by the Israelis. In 1/35th scale, there are three M51s produced by Dragon, Academy and Tamiya. The first two have got their problems, not least of which is the grossly oversized muzzle brake. The Tamiya kit is a beauty, but it is of a Batch 1 version, but as it is by far and away the best “51”, I used the Tamiya kit a the basis for this build. Without going into a WIP, the conversion consisted of the following; Rear upper hull sliced off of the Academy kit and attached to the Tamiya hull to give an increase in length of 5mm. Extra louvre added underneath. Dragon diesel engine deck added in place of the Tamiya radial engine deck, along with the main gun travel lock from the Academy kit. Extra stowage bins each side made from card and etched brass. Rear stowage bin from the Academy kit. Raised serial numbers (Academy) front and rear. Turret weld lines beefed up with Milliput (beefed up a bit too much!!) Extra turret bin on rhs from card. All of the jerry can holders were replaced with ones from Eduard etched brass. The headlamp lenses are Little Cars. The Eduard set for the M51 was used throughout. It was sprayed with a mix of Tamiya XF57 Buff and XF24 Light Grey in a ratio of 3:2. Decals included in the Academy kit were used and are for an unknown training unit in the 1980's. The casting symbols on the glacis were later removed as I found out that this hull had not been cast by that particular foundry. There are a couple of mistakes/omissions that are in the photos but have since been rectified. As always, thanks for looking. John.
  22. Well there, I started modelling again on christmas 2016, yeah, with on eof thos Tamiya kits, only realizing that the manufacturers have diversified. This was build after I did the Dragon Panther, thought to add a diorama with several vehicles and one should be air defense. Then I realised, that doin gon tank on a beermat is enough. So this ended as an individual vehicle. The build was nice, althogh I did soooo many mistakes on it. In the end I painted it, or repainted it to be in the Herman Goring 1944 callout from the Dragon manual and intended it to be in service for some time. So basecoat was German tank gray and the repainted in 1943 Tank Ochre from the Vallejo line. Wanted to try scratches, but not rusted, so all scratches were in gray. Then I wanted to try Oil colours, and I tried them , mainly at the front. I didnt do any dirt on this yet, because I couldt make up my mind on that yet. Any recommendations are welcome. Still learning
  23. Hi there, that was my last kit I more or less finished and started a vignette on. It is a dragon Jagdpanther. Painted based on one of the color callouts with some artistic licence. The main weathering attempts was using 1st: the AK Panelliner and 2nd: Pigments, as I didnt try that yet. Base colour was Vallejo Dunkelgelb and Ivory mixed at 50:50 and the highlights sprayed on, second came the Vallejo Olive green camo. Added the MiG Tan filter, panelliner pin wash, and then started modulation with 502 oil paints, olive green mostly and some faded green on the green and sand on the dunkelgelb. Pigments were then basically three Vallejo tones intermixed to get various shades and I tried to use two different fixers. Then finally used the MIG Streaking grime, because I had it. Well, any oilpaint works as well. The kit has some amazing detail. Not a big fan of those Magic Tracks, but they worked really well here. Here it is: Oil Paint color modulation Mess around with pigments Finally on base and after streaking in the daylight
  24. Just finished this one, it has been on the shlve og DOOM for some time , but finally finished it with homemade zimmerit, made from milliputty. otherwise OOb. It was a preprodution vechiale so used for scooling. Cheers Jes
