Dragons Z 37


Recommended Posts

Hello to all!

 

Take a look at my german destroyer type 1936 A mob Z 37 from Dragon.

It was initially the Dragon Z39 Kit with some modifications (less small AA Guns)

 

The Dragon German Destroyer Kits have also its flaws!

The left anchor winch turns in to the wrong direction.

The platform for the front Rangefinder is wrong.

The degaussing cable is missing

The searchlight on the mainmast is to big, the big one is installed near the aft funnel. 

I do not understand why they have done this mistakes. The Trumpeter Kits are right.

The small AA 2cm Guns are also wrong - overdetailed! I used the trumpeter light AA guns with

the PE Set from White Ensign!

I still need to place the Destroyer on the "Cathedral Glass" look at Topic "WAVES"  

 

Hope you like it.

 

Thanks for viewing.

 

Cheers Andreas.

Nice build, and the extra work put into her makes for a good finished product.

 

Well spotted on the anchor cables that are not handed, I'm getting back onto my Zerstorer project and will check this kind of thing a little more carefully.
