Finally....some paint
Posted by tigerman on Saturday, July 15, 2017 7:32 PM

I haven't posted or finished a build in over 5 years since my new job and divorce yada yada. Anyways, I finally got some paint on my Dragon T-34 1941. Easy build, but I had issues with the PE grill, so I went back to the styrene version. I used Stik's paint combo of Olive Green and Khaki Drab. A bit dark, so I might try to lighten it before weathering. I also added an RB barrel.

Don't expect for this to be done too soon. LOL

Thanks. It felt really good to finally paint something! I've got four builds under construction, but this is my furthest along. I'm working on a Pz III, Tiger I, and a Zero. I really want to get this bugger on the shelf with my finished builds. It won't be overnight due to my schedule.

Looks good Tigerman, I'm kinda at the same spot with my Smerch and Scud, all I want is paint to show progress but I keep finding parts to add or PE, soon very soon. Glad your making progress.

we're modelers it's what we do

Looking good Eric!  Nice to see your work again, I miss all the GBs you used to host!

Thanks Ernest. I too miss the GB's. They were very active and I thank you and all that participated.

Good to see you back building Eric, nice job on that one.

The armour GB's have not quite been the same the last few years.

Thanks! I've been building far more then painting. I've gotten my workbench light installed and decided this beautiful weekend was the perfect time to paint. Wish I could get into some GB's, but I just don't have the time. I cleaned the tracks, so that's my next step.

Well theres not lilkely to be any armour specific GB's for a while, i tried a couiple of times and they died a bit of a death. I'd just enjoy building when you can.

I have been building a lot lately.  I just never get around to posting on the forums as much.  Are you on Facebook.  I belong to a bunch of Facebook modeling groups.  I was also sick 2 years ago.  I was diagnosed with colon cancer, thankfully it was caught early and doing really well since.  I'm going to try and post some work I've done and also lurk on the forums more often.

 Well, it has been a while since we've seen you put a new one up here ~ and a classic good choice at that.

 I been away from the forum a week or so and it's good to come back and see you posting a build.

Smooth looking paint there sir.

That's a new 4B0 combo for me, Khaki Drab and Olive Green. I ust might have to try that.

Thanks for looking. I'm just afraid it will be a bit dark to weather. It does look the part though.

Don't worry Eric, you can always snowflage it if the weathering doesn't go along too well.

That crossed my mind. I've never done one. Might be fun.
