Dragon 1/35 Panther A, winter finish.

Recommended Posts

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.

I think that looks extremely well done.  :thumbsup2:

 

About your photo links, you seem to have linked the pages and not the images themselves?

I think it looks pretty good and the glue is certainly dry after 10 years.  The zimmerit turned out very realistic and the weathering is first rate.

I like the beat up winter camo look (and that's good as it seems that's all I can do after several tries) and yours turned out very well, subtle damage and dings but

still overall white, just right.

 

Please don't take 10 years for the next one, I want to live long enough to see it............

 

Take care,

 

Lloyd

That's come out really well, don't think I'd have the patience to wait that long though but it certainly proves nothing is beyond saving!

Wow !, and I thought it was slow to finish the kits ... lol, despite everything is an achievement that after 10 years has not gone to the ether ...
I also have some model in that situation, and only a stroke of inspiration separates it from that destiny.

I really like how I look at the end, that aspect is what I look for a similar model (in more ways than it seems ... lol). I love the figures, they are from Alpine, but you have finished them very well, although they do not look very good in the photos.:goodjob:

Cheers mate :yes:

Thanks for your kind words. I've got to agree about the figures, couldn't get the lights in the right position to show them to their best advantage. Alpine have to be some of the best figures available. I'll put that down to experience. 😀
