JAGDPANTHER, Dragon 1/35
Posted by Marcus McBean on Sunday, September 24, 2017 10:03 PM

This is my first German Armor build.  Completed this last year but I didn't post it, at least I don't remember posting it. 

The build is OOB except for the tracks, they are from Kaizen.

Nice and dirty!  Great looking camouflage and overall finish.

Looks great,nice build,Tamiya or Dragon? If i may offer up that the decals appear to be a little bright,I always dirty my decals a little to blend them in.

Looks pretty darn good for your first German camo scheme. Yes

Tojo72,

It is a Dragon kit, I believe kit# 6393.

They are a little bright aren't they.  I did go over them with a wash, but it looks like they could use a little more.

Very nice looking Jagdpather. I do like these Dragon panther kits.

Excellent weathering and the subtle blending of the camouflage is very good.

Excellent construction and painting.  Weathering is quite good, and the Kaizen tracks look fantastic.  Keep building that armor!

Looks great to me as well.

Never having done an armor kit before I'm a bit intimidated by all the fine builds I'm seeing here and on the 'net of 1/35 tanks. I was going to resurrect my Fairey Swordfish MkII from the pieces I'd left it in last year when I threw it in the trash after I couldn't get the braces right and snapped a part or two but, looking at it now I think I'll just build a new kit of that plane and put it off while I attempt a 1/35 Tamiya M48A3 Patton. I'll have to ask you guys what kinds of acrylic paints you use and all sorts of dumb questions but I'll be real happy just to complete a tank that looks half as good as yours Marcus.

1943Mike, Thank you for the nice remarks.  This was a Dragon kit that went together very well.  I used very little additional PE on it that didn't come with the kit.  I found it easier to assemble if I didn't follow Dragon's order of assembly and thought my way though it as to what step should be done next. 

I used Vallejo model air paints on this kit.  The mud and grass on the road wheels are also from Vallejo.  I purchased their line of effects products when they came out last year and couldn't wait to try them out.  So now I am going have to make a platform having it look like it is crossing one muddy field.
