  1. Dragon Models catalogue 2021 is downloadable here: http://www.dragon-models.com/CATALOG_2021/2021 Dragon Catalogue.pdf NOTHING new in the aircraft range Already announced in the catalogue 2020: V.P.
  2. I may be pushing my luck with a 4th build but seeing as this turned up today, slightly battered but the plastic was undamaged on it's journey from China. I bought this kit because it includes all the parts to make either a mid or late StuG Ausf.G built by the MIAG or Alkett assembly plants from mid September 1944 after zimmerit had stopped being applied. To be able to build either version requires different rear engine covers and different track guards and their attachment brackets, these are in the kit but not identified, so you need some reference material to correctly assemble your chosen
  3. Hi, This is Dragon 1/700 HMS Illustrious R06. Build with WEM PE set, Orange Hobby Harrier + tow cart, 3D printed mobile crane, and WEM and Eduard Figures. My original plan was to represent the carrier in her final fit. But I learned I can't achieve it with what the kit provide. So I decide to built her as the 2000ish version when she operates from sierra leone. All the aircraft was detailed by PE and modified. Harriers become FA.2, folded the Lynx blade, deflated bag for the parked seaking, and modify sea king to become HC.4.
  4. This is my long lasting project started back in 2013. As you can see, there hasn't been much done here. But I recently got the fenders on it and figured it's time to get it up on the internet. I don't have the shot of all the stuff I'm using here, but the base kit is Dragon 6301. I won't use Vorpanzer parts and will make it a regular later version Ausf.E. I also have Armorscale fenders and barrel, Lion Roar PE set, Aber PE stowage bin and Modelkasten tracks for this project. I'm also using the interior bits that got left over of Trumpeters Brückenleger build
  5. This is going to be my entry in the GB, dragons nice little kit of the PzIII ausf H in North Africa, supplemented with a tank workshop barrel with canvas cover. Other than that it will be an out of the box build in the hope I get it finished in time!!
  6. Hi all This is my attempt on Ju88G-6 D5+AX, from 12/NJG3, which took part in 'Operation Gisela' on the night of 3/4 March, 1945. The idea behind Gisela was for the Luftwaffe nightfighter fleet to follow returning bombers back to their bases in the UK and attack them as they prepared to land. D5+AX, flown by Hptm Johann Dreher and his crew, attacked Halifax bombers of the French Air Force as they returned to Elvington, in Yorkshire. After his attacks on returning Halifaxes, Dreher continued to strafe the airfield and the surrounding area. While making a low, high speed turn for
  7. My first completed model of the year. I build really slowly so this is quite the milestone for me. Some small issues that I'd go back and fix if I could, but at this point I'm just keen to move on to the next kit
  8. Hi all Can't remember the last WIP thread I did, but I thought this project might be worth one I decided to make this a project after a visit to York Air Museum at Elvington last year. I won't burden you with the details again, but here is a link to the thread I started about it at the time: Thanks to the kindness of @SafetyDad I have the majority of the decals I needed to get started. I hadn't made a start before now because: 1. I still needed the 'D5' decals and was looking at getting a set made up - until I realised I had t
  9. Hi Guys. Been Lurching around while Building a MLRS in the Desert Storm GB. But I miss the banter of a Pure AFV Group Build. So as the MLRS is going well, I thought I'd give this a go, I've had the kit since this Gb was proposed and been tempted to start many times. So here goes. Box top and packaged content. This is the box suggested colour scheme. Be the first time I've attempted the basic grey, but have quite a few different greys to choose from, so can hopefully make it a bit more interesting by varying the shades.
  10. I have had this Dragon kit in the stash for over 20 years so it's not one of their newer kits but it still looks quite nice for it's age. I have just ordered a metal barrel with brass muzzle brake to improve it's looks and a few more bits of AM to bring it up to date. Sometime in the distant past I made a small start on this and attached the axles but that's as far as I got, everything else is still bagged up including the track links which are the pre-magic track individual links on sprues. so now I have retrieved from the stash I might as well finish it off. At the moment my idea for
  11. Hi, After finishing several aircraft and helicopters, I feel the need to build another ship. And I guess I will be building Dragon 1/700 HMS Illustrious.. This is actually the first 1/700 Carrier I ever bought, and frankly I'm kind of a newbie in ship modelling, hence I hope it will be a good idea to post my progress here, knowing there's several experts on modern RN Carriers here who could correct me along the way. As you can see, I have prepare to add several PE's from WEM (716 HMS Invicible/Illustrious), Eduard (Naval Figures), and some generic raili
  12. A Panzer III Ausf N I know, I said snow and the box says Tunisia (a country not noted for the cold), but there is method here. The intent is to build a vehicle attached to Pz.Abt 503 in early 1943. PzAbt 503 had trained for Africa, but were diverted to southern Russia after Stalingrad. Some of these characters may be invited to crew the tank.
  13. Hello, I present the M48A3 Patton model from Dragon. Added the mantlet and searchlight set from Legend, PE parts from Eduard, AFV Club tracks and machine guns from Aber. Painted Tamiya Olive Green on B&W base. Enjoy watching and I hope you will like it.
  14. Dragon Models is working on a new tool 1/48th Messerschmitt Bf.109E kit - ref. DR5550 Sources: http://platz-media.com/blog/2019/09/22/2019-ahs-dragon/ http://www.platz-hobby.com/products/9386.html V.P.
  15. Hello and good evening everyone. I'm back.......well, starting to get back into being at the bench after having to withdraw from the GB Panzer IV due to some medical and personal issues to fix; my apologies to everyone who finished and congrats on a great build from all. Even though I didn't drop by any contributions as regards comments etc....I followed avidly on all your builds. Thoroughly enjoyed everyone's progress. My medication prevented me from being able to positively contribute both at the bench and on here as a forum with some chat etc. ...but I'm back and wil
  16. Completition number two of 2021 is in the books! I've had this Dragon StuG.III laying around for at least two years so I decided to finish it up. The base kit is Dragon 6891 with a CMK transmission, Aber metal barrel, Masterclub tracks, and Miniart figures. It's modeled after a picture taken of a StuG III captured by the 104th Infantry Division during the Battle of the Bulge. It was a fun build and I look forward to it making the trip with me to the IMPS National Show in Las Vegas, NV later this year. Comments and criticism welcomed as always!
  17. Feeling like a break from US/UK stuff, so next on the chopping block is the venerable ex-Trimaster FW-190 with over wing slipper tanks. Picked this up second hand last year for a song, so let's see how it goes! Obligatory sprue shots and box art. Decals look okay, and a small PE fret lurking in that bag. Parts look okay considering they come from a time before Bill Clinton changed his humidor. Some flash and some soft panel lines here and there. Been reading up on this kit, and besides needing spacers
  18. Hi Pals, I will try to comment on the assembly and painting of the model, without the support of WIP photos. In the first place, the kit is really a SU-85M, but when seeing that the 85mm barrel that the kit came with, it was a "little small", and that by chance there was a 100mm metal barrel available, for a SU-100 , I decided to switch and build the SU-100. Being the SU-85M model, seeing photos of it and the SU-100, I found no differences (at least substantial), between one model and another, not so with the SU-85. I do not remember major problems with the
  19. Dragon has just re-released (original release in 2008?) its 1/72th Blitz kit as Arado Ar-234C-3 with V-1 "Huckepack" - ref.5011 Source: http://www.platz-hobby.com/products/5602.html Box art V.P.
  20. Hey there, here is my contribution to the group build. Got this Panther F a while back, only to have a spare set of rubber rimmed wheels for another 2 in 1 kit. Not this one made me curious because of the night vision pieces and the air defence armour. Also the artwork really got me. So I will do this in that style. For the brown I will try to achieve the look of the bare steel plates and paint the sand with a washable color. Got a commander figure for it and a full set of dio parts as well, but I guess trying to finish the build together with the figure should be enough for now.
  21. After the initial Airborne and Seaborne invasion, the Allies got bogged down fighting in the Normandy countryside. The bocarge that the Allies faced favoured the defender, the way the fields were laid out with high banks, hedges covered with trees. Enemy and Allies were operating either side of hedges some times without even knowing. Stuff used: Tasca: Sherman Treemendus: Tree kit, Senic kit Miniart: British Tank riders Dragon: various German figures
  22. Happy Christmas all, i built this festive Sherman as part of the STGB earlier this year, thought I'd post it in the ready for inspection on Christmas Day. As it didn't seem right to do it any other time of the year.
  23. Hey all, Here's my M60 Patton from Dragon. I picked this kit up from TANKFEST 2017, i think? It was a few years back now... I built the kit straight away and quite nearly finished it but the DS Tracks drove me off, so it sat in a dark corner of my desk for a few years... Until now! I got sick of looking at it so I took a deep breath and painted up the tracks, () and fitted them, then went ahead and plugged a few antennae in. The kits out of the box with all of its beautiful inaccuracies, such as the oversized DS Mantlet. The guard infront of the machine gun cupola was wa
  24. Dragon kit (Dragon 6857): I added some missing details: 1) lever, pedals, spar on the floor 2) wiring installation tube I also made cable plugs and handles and making holes in radio rack dampers for radio hardware I added some missing bolts, sanding the left wall of the engine compartment to the real thickness (I want to make the engine compartment open), crumpled fenders and muffler. The details are glued into separate blocks that will be painted separately: Vyt
