The Great LSM Twins Group Build ends July 3, 2024 ×

Pz.Kpfw.I Ausf A - Dragon 6356 - 1/35


Recommended Posts

I vowed not to start another project but……..Wildcat / Flammwagen & Panzer III L all in the booth, I needed to inhale cement fumes again. So here is a tiny project……and I mean tiny…….the Panzer I Ausf A from Dragon. This was another eBay find at very little money, not sure if they are even still available.
The hull in 1/35 is only 4” or 100mm or 10cm in length and yes magic tracks to contend with. These in themselves will need the Hubble telescope to assemble. For such a small AFV, the 420 parts count is sizeable, PE is included for grills etc.

Carrying on with my North African theme I’m going to depict this Ausf A as delivered in May 1941 to Tripoli for Panzer Regiment 5. Another reason to model this is, that you rarely see Panzer I or II’s built up, well I haven’t. So maximum optical equipment turned up to 11 and here we go………

Wildcat complete, Pz III and Flammpanzerwagen in the booth, time to carry on with this diminutive Pz I A. This comes with a full interior but……close it up and it is a glimpse of what’s there…….the second shot is hull laid over and also a comparison against the Flammpanzerwagen ( still have camo to add)……..

Jees Phil!

That thing is really small, I don't envy you doing the tracks.  You do know they (Das Werk) make this in 1/16 scale. The tracks would be easier...lol. its looking real good. Cant wait to see it painted.

Thanks Ron much appreciated. I cannot come to terms with doing 1/16 yet but never say never. The tracks are minuscule…….

The Takom Pz I is a nice kit.  Workable tracks.  You either want the hatches closed or a figure to fill the hole.  But if you complete your 1/35 kit, you might as well move on to a Bren Gun Carrier next.  I hear they have an insane number of teeny, tiny track links.

Never done a Bren Carrier, good thinking Gaz……..
