Next build...




Silly idea of trying to make the brass etch for the Revell late Panther Ausf A fit on the Dragon early Panther Ausf A.

It doesnt.

Much chopping of brass and swearing involved, but the hull is done...

Is there not a Dragon brass etch kit available, or were you using what you had on hand?

Splod,

I just like making life hard.

Had it lying around and thought I'd be clever.

Well, I used some swear words, and made some new ones... but its built.

Wont be that stupid again, but it looks the part. Some small stowage items next, but not much.

The tracks are just the usual vinyl ones that Dragon use.

Thatís going to be used on the Revell kit.  ;)
