    1/35 JS-2 (Dragon)

    So I have finished the build, nothing overly special as I said it was a fairly simple kit. Few of the joins were a bit dodgy but I think I can also put that down to being out of the game for a while (noticed a bit more sanding that needs doing while taking these photos). Working on the dining...

    1/35 JS-2 (Dragon)

    Hey Guys, Been out the loop for a couple of years, not had my hands on a kit due to house moves and work, but been getting the inevitable urge to model again. Decided to pick a simple kit to get back into things and get my skills back up to speed, as such i have gone for Dragons 1/35 JS-2...

    Dragon - Sd.Kfz. 234/4

    Thanks for the comments guys, like the enthusiasm Panzer :) Just need to make the last push and finish her off. Three figures are nearly painted, keep debating with myself about the weathering, think I'm going to go for a light sandy/dusty finish to preserve the detail and match up with the...

    You would never know you were looking at a 1/35 model, the detail on that bike is awesome, the spokes really set it off.

    Dragon - Sd.Kfz. 234/4

    Hey Guys, Pretty much finished the base for the set up nothing fancy just something to put the kit on. Getting really annoyed with the lighting in my new flat, all the bulbs are low energy crap and the direct light I use for modelling sucks for taking photos. Anyway, the grass flock is by...

    Love the camo'd truck second from bottom. Are you thinking of putting it on a base Scott? Could have a good little diorama setting with that model subject. See enough footage of those things whizzing about in the news.

    Dragon - Sd.Kfz. 234/4

    Update on the base. Used Wills paving slabs, with filler bulking out the edges of the track which will eventually be grassed with a simple fence at the back. The slabs were primed in black, then a light grey with several very thin black washes. Intend to slighty mud and dust them up to, but...

    Dragon - Sd.Kfz. 234/4

    Thanks man, totally over looked that for some reason. Fixed it up with a bit of green putty and sanding. Notice so much more when uploading photos, like the imperfections in the painting of the stowage, bit of green stuff needs to come off to underneath the exhaust. I'll forgive myself as its...

    Dragon - Sd.Kfz. 234/4

    Hey Guys, Been pretty busy recently so trying to fit in some modelling when I can, sure its the same for everyone :) Post primer painting includes the camo (tamiya acrylics), a MIG neutral wash, gloss varnish and some preliminary oil weathering with artists oils. I have only applied raw umber...

    Slipper Disaster :'( I managed to drop one of my slippers on her and detached a front port and snapped the aerial. However all is not lost as I intended to replace the aerial anyway and the port is back on just fine. Have had some issues with the pressure on my air brush so I have a couple of...

    Hey Guys, Picked this up the other day, started building it after work at 18:00(ish) , its now 23:00. Very quick build but an amazing kit, went together fantastically with some nice details. Need to do a bit of filling and sanding the photos always seem to show up imperfections. One of the...

    The set of steps is awesome, all for a diorama style base, gives it a bit of a story for your imagination to play with. Alan
