    I made a tank!

    My second attempt at a tank, so i apologize if it is a bit underwhelming, specially compared to all the neat models here. But I'm pleased with how it came out!

    It's a 1/35 Pz.I Ausf A by Dragon, and when building it, I didn't realise until too late that I had made a HUGE mistake during contruction...

    Can you spot it? :D

    :D Hello friends:

    Past Oct-31, I started my old Tiger I of Academy 1/35. This is my first kit with zimmerit.. The only "add-ons" were the tracks of Tamiya, the tracks of the kit are too thick!!

    all parts have a perfect adjusting, without problems in this aspect. This time, I am painting the tools, box, etc., before to assembling them to the armor.

    [​IMG]

    Nov-01.- I applied the dark-yellow of Tamiya. About the gun barrel, I will retouch the muzzle (check the detail in the pics 1 & 2). I scratched some parts of the zimmerit. The tools are ready!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Nov-02.- ¿ The camo are ready!

    [​IMG]

    Nov-03.- More pics!. The crew of this tank applied hand numbers in irregular shape, normally, the hand numbers not were painted with good alignment. The wheels are ready too!.

    Next step: Weathering!. The final pics I will add in a new post.

    Regards,
    Rodolfo

    Nope. Whatever it is, at least you have not done what I did once, which was put the tracks on facing different directions :oops:

    Oh, and can I say - nice model :cool:


    rtvmodeler - wow! I particularly like the shell strikes, where you chipped off the Zimmeritt and added scorch marks.
