  1. I have decided to throw another Dragon Panther G into this GB. As can be seen, all the sprues are still sealed in plastic bags because I thought all the Dragon Panther G kits were the same plastic just different decals and p/e. However, as I was removing the turret from it's sprue I noticed that it is slightly different, it has the horse shoe fairing in front of the cupola for I/R attachment and marks on the turret sides for the camouflage attachment loop locations. The only other difference that I found so far is the kit has the larger late idler but the earlier one has been removed from t
  2. 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.
  3. Hi guys, Hope you are all well. I just finished my Panzerkampfwagen IV build. It's a Dragon kit No. 6779, quite a nice kit, except horrible DS tracks that I replaced anyway with Fruils and a few minor accuracy issues. Following my Pz IA build belonging to Panzer Reg 5, I decided to to the same with this one. I decided to go with a tank number 812, one of the first vehicles that arrived in Tripoli in March 1941. This is the initial vehicle, not a replacement one. It is interesting that I was not able to find any records about when this vehicle was lost (it seams tha
  4. I will enter the GB with this Dragon kit. Although the box art work must be one of the worst of the Panther kits that they produced, however, the kit is very comprehensive as it has the original wheels, plus a pair of steel wheels for one of the last dozen Panthers built by MAN and of course a full set of steel wheels. Here are the steel wheels. I have some extras in the stash, an Armorscale barrel with resin mantlet, ET p/e grills and tools and a set of Fruil metal tracks. Thanks for looking.
  5. 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 the some missing bolts, sanding the left wall in 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:
  6. I've had these two kits in the stash for a while now,and i fancy a change from wingy things, These will take me through nicley till christmas at a steady pace, The mirror models cmp FAT looks a nice kit and comes with photo etch and resin wheels in the box, the dragon 25 pounder thats going to hang off the back of it looks good too, Cheers all Glynn The scheme I'll be doing and the resin wheels and pe oob
  7. My new project, although this is a slow burn as it has to contend with my 7 month old son! I'm building the M4A3E8 depicted in this photo below as its a bit of an unusual subject (photo used for discussion only). The unusual things that have attracted me to building this are the use of empty jerry cans as additional armour, the early style turret and the the angled plates on the suspension bogies. I've never seen this last detail in any other photos of HVSS suspension shermans or can find any information mentioned in books or online about their purpose. If any of the experts on this site know
  8. Hello, starting a new project, Sd.Kfz. 186 Jagdtiger - Henschel Production Type - Dragon - Nr. 6285 - 1:35 more picts soon
  9. My most recently finished model is Dragon's Panzer Ib in 1/35. While this was in a smart-kit boxing, it wasn't as "smart" as some of Dragon's other releases of the last 20 years or so. Detail is very good, but not great, and fit was a bit problematic in spots. I wanted to try out a few new weathering techniques on this model, one of them being wet pigment application, and the other a sort of different spin on oil-dot filtering. The wet pigment experiments were not successful. Something about the pigments I used (Vallejo) was not allowing them to form feathered edges. Instead they came to abrup
  10. Hello friends, this time I have a great and well known kit from the Dragon: I wanted to build it from the mid 1990s when I first saw this kit at my friend’s house. It’s a typical Dragon moulding from 1992 with a very good sculpting and perfect artwork from Ronald Volstad. An artwork represents the four infantrymen in their very motley equipment and that’s the main reason why I want to put my hands on it. The painting guide on the back of the box: Actually, I don’t decided yet which paints I’ll choose: Mr.HOBBY or AK Interactive...
  11. Morning all....decided to kick off another project in this lockdown world at present.....the Panther D from the Kursk Offensive July '43. Picked this up off Ebay for £32. Came with RB's turned barrel, some part PE set and a set of Panther II skirts. Might get to use them one day day as they look similar to the Panther G type. This Panther by Dragon is a very clean and simple kit. Nice clean crisp moulding.....but needs some help with some basic PE.....so three sets on the way. Three PE set's.......PEA071 for the tool box specific to some Panthers at Kursk.
  12. Hi guys, I will try to build this model. It was a second hand box I bought last year at a show. When I had a good look inside I noticed that the original turret was gone and there was a resin one inside. Now isn't that a problem, the only downside was a resin gun barrel, that I have replaced with a metall one from RB models. I have also got a set of Friul metal tracks for it. I hope they will fit. Here is the content of the box. Hope to start it soon. Cheers,
  13. Here is my Italeri Mil Mi-24P “Hind F”, Red 23 of the VVS (Soviet Air Force). I built this one back in 2002. This was a reboxed Dragon kit. It was built mostly OOB. I added some details like aerials, the tailboom anti-collision light, tail bumper and undercarriage struts. It was all painted with brush except for the matt varnish which was airbrushed. The scheme was based on various photos of real machines as the back-of-the-box paint guide was useless (no pattern)! Thanks for looking Miguel
  14. Immediately after the end of hostilities in Europe, the allied powers scoured Germany for the remnants of their advanced technology. The American's set up 'Project LUSTY, which stood for LUftwaffe Secert TechnologY. Col Harold E Watson, a qualified test pilot was selected to head the mission. He picked a number of pilots, all combat veteran's and all Thunderbolt pilots, experienced ground crew, both American and German along with several experienced German pilots. He also carried a signed pass by Dwight D Eisenhower, stating that no senior officer or military police could impede him in his wor
  15. 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
  16. My dad wanted to build this now for a long time, finally he got to it. Using the old Dragon kit. Bought it second-hand some years ago. Decals aren´t usable anymore, so gonna use AIMS ones.

  17. Dear fellow Britmodellers, this is my 1/72 Dragon Arado Ar-234 B in markings of 9./KG76, flown by Hptm,. Josef Riegler. I built with addition of Reheat photo etch, True Details wheels and Master pitot tube. Decals from Aeromaster "Arado Blitz Bombers Pt.1", painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Thank you for your interest! Best greetings from Vienna Roman
  18. #13/2020 And another one finished. Started with Dragon´s "E" kit but then stole the engine from one of their Ju88 kits and built an "A". Eduard seatbelts added, EZ Line for the antenna wires and brake lines, AIMS decals for the main markings, Gunze RLM70/71 for the replacement wing and old selfmixed RLM76 with Tamiya XF-23 Gunze H314 and H2 and a not known anymore light grey.

  19. Another one I finished some time ago: The (very) old Dragon Pz III M/N kit no. 9015. This one is finished as an Ausf.M at the time of the Battle of Kursk. German armour is not really my thing but I've always liked the look of the Pz III's and IV's with the Schurzen fitted. As ever, hope you like it and all comments/criticism welcome. Bandit 1250
  20. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Dragon P-61A, "Double Trouble" of 422nd NFS, built with Eduard photo etch, True Details wheels and Eagle Cals decals. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Thanks for your interest, best greetings from Vienna!
  21. OK, this time something different. 1/144 Dragon A-6E with Retro Wings cockpit set and PaulusVictor decals. This kit is a nasty dog. In the box - it looks like 3.6 ...not great, not terrible. Unfortunately it is more terrible than great when you start it. Fit is very bad, and there is a lot of details missing. I tried to add some that are really visible. The most important is small hump behind the canopy... Some small intakes too. There is a lot of sink marks in the plastic, and many missing panel lines that needs to be rescribed. I will try to make decent wing fold. I used Tamiya E
  22. Another model I rescued off my shelf of doom, one of Dragon's older models, the Hetzer. It started life as a flame thrower but I bought it second hand from someone who had used that part for something else and included a resin conversion and metal barrel for a conventionally armed machine. I initially put this on the shelf of doom as it was before magic tracks, so I had to cut out and clean up about 200 track pieces. I guess I burned out on the model after doing that and it sat in the stash for years until I pulled it out again a week ago. Other than the tedious track link clean up, the kit
  23. I decided that I needed a Porsche turreted King Tiger in my collection. After doing some research last year during the Tiger GB I decided that one of the first 5 King tigers to enter service with s.Pz.Kp.(Fkl)316 would make an interesting model to build. The Dragon kit provides decals for one of these tanks, white 13, however it is not possible to build this tank with just what is provided in the box. These first tanks had some different features and I will highlight these as I proceed with build. The Dragon kit with moulded zimmerit is a good basis as all the King Tigers with t
  24. Hallo again My first T-34. The kit is not a correct one. My verdict is acceptable. Fast build. No interior at all. Did any of you modeller a tank with interior? Since I have nearly all of them, AfV and MiniArt, RFM and Takom. Happy modelling
