Dragon kit (Dragon 6857):

spacer.png

 

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:

Nice build so far......right up my alley. There was a nice Voyager upgrade set on Ebay recently and tempted to pick it up and add this kit to the stash for another time. Been eyeing one up for some time,  as I've built the second version Grille.

 

Nice clean build......nice attention to detail....:yes:

 

Regards

Simon.

Thanks!

Steve, no, not primed there. Because I’m lazy, I don’t use primer :)

robw_uk, I created a project and album on Scalemates for photos. Of course registration is required to do this.

 

Reaguards,
Vytautas

How did you do the dented exhaust Vytautas ?.......Just carve in the dents and then sand them smooth.

A little more progress today.
I added some wires and pipes to the engine (not all yet!)

To make it easier to work, I connected the tanks with two beams on which I put the engine

Hi Simon, 

I glued a piece of plastic to the muffler, carved wrinkles and then sand them smooth:

I usually use such tools for carving:

I really like carving :). Here are my unfinished projects: Pz.38 and Jagdpanther

Vytautas

so you add EXTRA plastic to the part and carve through that?

I used the extra plastic only for the muffler. In other cases, since I did not need high relief, the thickness of the existing model part was sufficient to create a crumpled view.

Hi,

I made from scratch the floor of the fighting compartment (for some reason, Dragon did not provide that)
Then I combined the cannon base, floor, and gearbox shaft into one block:

I made several pipes (or wires?) and connected to the gearbox:
