Dragon Pz IIIM Neo Kursk


Recommended Posts

Chipping looks great to me and certainly not overdone. I like the chipping multi coloured like you did it, with some bare metal some corrosion and some abrasion. The cupola looks gorgeous, like Phil said.

Cheers Rob

I have always felt that Dragon kits were special.  I love the detail and plastic quality.  And this one was a gift from my daughter.   I've already cleaned and painted the rubber on the roa

Thanks. Rob!     A few years ago I built this Dragon PZIII G Orange Box kit.  Except for the gun breech, there was no interior. So, I filled the open hatches with crew members. Y

Two builds going but not much progress in either....  Due to the schurzen, pre painting and pre camo are a must...  and I wanted to make sure I got the backs of the side hatches done...  before I glue

Gaz, this is looking stunning, on the cupola just adding the lens and scuff marks brings to life. The insignia etc looks far better as masks, going to have to look into them. Are you going to weather this one up.........

Thank you.  I’ve already done a pin wash and an overall yellow ochre wash.  I’ve also done some rain marks with a few more layers to go.  Once that is done I’ll limit it to some dust.  As it was a short tussle in the summer heat, making it look really beat up wouldn’t be a good option unless I could realistically batter the schurzen supports and Fenders.

It's been a while since my last update.  One of the main reasons was because I stripped and repainted the schurzen.  A lot of unwelcome textures and dust motes had gotten under my clear coat.  I also got the wheels and tracks on.

Today I got the turret schürzen and hatches on as well as all of the tools and spare tracks.

I also did some rusting on the muffler.

Tomorrow I hope to get a heavy dusting on wheels, lower schürzen, and horizontal surfaces.  

apparently when Russian roads weren't muddy, they were covered in a choking dust.

 

Thanks for looking!

I like the look a lot. The dust coat ties everything together. If you'd like to add something, I would apply some dust deposits on horizontal areas, which are cornered by other elements, like on the fenders or the engine deck. There is also the possibility to add some dust in another colour, maybe a bit more reddish, which would enrich the colour palette.

You have to love these III's and IV's in late(r) war outfit, with all the added armor, being it Schürzen, extra sheets for the turret, track links or even wood or concrete. How to make something obviously outdated at least partly capable. The weird look of all these additions makes these types interesting to the eye.

Cheers Rob

Looks great there Gaz. I broke down and bought the recent Takom kit after arching your build. 

Just waiting for it to arrive on the slow boat.

Thank you, Carl.  I'll be interested to see how the Takom kit goes together.

Thank you, Rob,

      The tonal variations in the dust coat show more in-person than they do in photo, but I do understand that I need to do a bit more.  There are some dust deposits on the horizontal surfaces, but here I was afraid of blotting out too much detail.

 

Finding dusty armor images isn't easy.  From soldiers memoirs, minutes after the rains stopped, the rollbahn gave up great clouds of dust.  This is an Ost Front image.

But finding closeups of dusty tanks...  is even harder.  Maybe I don't know where to look.

The tow cable, muffler, extra running gear and many other details in this build make it a real eye catcher.  Good eye, good job Gaz. 

Thank you, Frank!  Still some work to go...  I haven't even touched the figures, yet.
