I have that kit, looks really nice from what I have seen. 

Looks great in the box. Cookie Sewell did a review on it and gave it high marks. The only "problem" I see is all the molding tabs. Looks like enough to make another kit! LOL Pretty tedious to remove and clean up. :)

Nice work!:) I'm considering a white scheme but that is subject to change.

 

As you might can tell, I went with scheme #4. I built it OOB as suits my lazy approach to modelling, but I added some metal supports for the tracks on the forward superstructure.

Whoa, wait a minute!  Going armor, and not even US armor??  Who are you and what have you done with JohnB??

 

Cool beans, John!  Looking forward to seeing  you build it.  Dragon kits are my number 1 preference when it comes to armor.

This should be fun to watch. 

So John, are going with glossy sea blue or the earlier tri-coloir scheme? :D

Carl................ does that mean John is 'predictable'?? :rolleyes:  I, along with the rest of the crew will watch this with great interest, and as usual I'm sure to learn anew technique or two...... looking forward to this one for sure....

You did a great job on it. I've been busy removing the plethora of molding tabs and cleaning all that up. I hope to get started on building and pre-painting this weekend. If I remember correctly, interiors on German panzers were a rusty red color or a whiteish ivory color. Correct me if I'm wrong! :)

We'll see how it goes Jeff. It's been several years since I've built a tank so I guess I'm due! :)

LOL Gaz! Time for something a bit different I guess. My stash of armor keeps growing so I guess I better build some! :)

Thank you. If your work is on the level of your aircraft then you'll likely get a better result than I.

Red primer below a certain point, but as there is little interior provided none of that may show, other than a bit through the rear cooling vents. The ivory color in the crew areas will be more apparent through the hatches but if you button it up it won't matter.

That's what I figured, thanks. :)
