    T-34/76 Mod. 1941

    Thanks Joachim.To be honest I stole it from a friend armor builder who used it for a panzer IV, so you won't be the first to steal All my fellow armor builder kept telling me that I should raise the base to make tha tank more visible, so I lent the idea and built a box out of forex, painted black and added pictures from my references
  2. Hi all, I've been away for a long time, but in the meantime I managed to almost finish this model. It's still missing some detail on the base and a figure that a friend will paint for me and I will add later. And this is the result: Hope you like it...

    Dragon's 1/35 El Alamein Sherman MkII

    The tracks look very nice, were they difficult to assemble?

    Looking very nice
  8. Welcome, we're building the same kit

    Sorry, I had missed the tarp part Very nice result on the kangeroo, and nice turret too on that M4A1

    Nice choice and great progresses Looking forward to seeing the hairspray technique applied.

    Very nice, David. How did you make the tarp?

    1:35 Dragon M-51 ISHERMAN

    Oh, I suppose I'm a little disappointed. I was hoping to read some great new progress I guess I'm a little bit spoiled by you two (Garfield included)

    Wonderful job on that second tank
  15. No internal detail at all, unfortunately. But I will make it closed, so it isn't a great issue The air scrubbers are provided in two different shapes, one with a "house roof" on top and four straps to close them, and the one I used. The instructions say that the overall sand one used this type, so I decided to stick to them, as I didn't have any picture that could say they were wrong.
  16. My build will be this one: Hope to start it as soon as possible.

    The SUD/BAC Vedette

    Oh, I can sense the old magic, my friend. Another stunning piece of literature, let's see some awesome plastic model
  18. The sun gets directly in the room I work in during all afternoon, and this makes thing quite hot This helps by drying oils in half time, but also makes a nearly impossible task to stay there until dawn

    Dragon's 1/35 El Alamein Sherman MkII

    I don't think I'll have the time. My deadline is july 26th, as in that date I'll be moving to the holiday house and will not have bench time anymore until mid september. Groundwork, sandbags, barbed wire will come at a later stage. Nice picture, looking forward to seeing it in 1/35
  20. I hope to have some bench time on it tonight, yesterday it was T-34 time The idea is to complete hull and turret as soon as possible, my mancave is becoming too hot to work in during the day and this will become even worse in the next weeks, so I have to speed things up.

    Dragon's 1/35 El Alamein Sherman MkII

    Nice idea the Semovente. My idea is to depict a real scene happened to my grandfather. During the battle he was wounded to an ankle and couldn't move, so he stayed put in a trench and let the allies pass. When the tide turned and the italians regained his position he was taken to an hospital and then back home. He told us that a tank had passed by his side (obviously he couldn't tell what tank it was and I was too young to investigate further), hatches closed and the driver/commander didn't see him (or pretended to). I dunno yet if I'll put his figure in the dio...
  22. First step. I started from the hull, as I'm already dealing with the T-34 wheels. The fit is perfect and the parts need only a little cleaning before assembly. If this is the way it will go together, this will be a fast and straightforward build.

    Dragon's 1/35 El Alamein Sherman MkII

    I think I will go with the overall sand C Squadron, 3rd Hussars, 9th Armoured Brigade, 2nd New Zealand Division, one of the options out of the box. I'm still a novice at colour modulation, and I don't feel enough confident to try a camo. I will give it a battered look, given the harsh conditions and the hard battle. I'm thinking of a small base with a sand dune, some sandbags and barbed wire in a corner, reproducing the winning push of the allies. The idea is to ideally achieve a finish like this: Link to external forum, but using the decals from the kit.

    They just released an Israeli paint set that has it, along with three pigments and two other colours. Lifecolor IDF set. The right one should be sandgrey 01.
