Tristar Panzer 1 Ausf A

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Here's my most recent and 4th armour completion, Tristar's excellent little Panzer. I build it out of the box including the ModelKasten tracks which came in the initial boxings.
This was the first time I used the popular hairspray technique to show a worn and weathered desert vehicle showing it's original panzer grey colour scheme.
I used a mix of Gunze and Tamiya acrylics and only the slightest bit of weathering pigments.
My only comment regarding the kit is to cut the '833' decal into separate numerals so they match the curve of the turret better.
Hope you enjoy the pics!

Thanks for taking a look.

It's a nice little boy, very well weathered, exhauts grids looks nicely detailed, and tracks they are very expensive to get apart ...at least for me, :goodjob:

Cheers Tim :yes:

It looks good. Nice weathering. I will suggest to drill out the ends of the exhaust and maybe odd some smoke on the end.

Hi Tim,

 

Pardon my ignorance - I am unfamiliar with this kit - what scale is it - I've read through the thread - but can't see the scale.

 

BTW - Lovely work on the staining and chips - something to aspire to - thanks for sharing - Steve

Hi X,

 

Thanks for the comments.

 

This is the Tristar 1/35 kit. The original release (003) has the Modelkasten tracks which make a huge difference. Hard to find now but worth the hunt.
