I can't say, crazyivan, the huge Trump T-34s are my first venture in mega-scale. All I can say is that, regardless of the scale he uses, Dr Shige is astounding in the effort he puts into the detailing.

Everybody, check out Hyper Scale---the feature articles and galleries have the biggest collection of high-quality modeling I've ever seen. The painting is incredible to observe:

Yeah, got the Dragon Panther D, if it's the one I think you're talking about [kit #6164, Sd.Kfz. 171 Panther D 52nd Battalion, 39th Panzer Regiment Kursk Offensive, July 1943].

Nice, but I was disappointed with the swingarm setup (moulded onto hull sides); definitely not the standard I expect these days. I got it nearly two years ago, I think, and have delayed building it partly because of that.

Dragon's recently released kit #6299 [Sd.Kfz. 171 Panther D Premium Edition] rectifies this and adds some further refinements, so I bought that one too. Now I've got the enthusiasm to go ahead, even though I'm gonna have a lot of 'leftovers' (some of which can be used, some not).

Have you checked out Tamiya's kit #35216, Tiger I Fruhe Produktion (early production)? Not quite a Dragon 3-in-1 to be sure, but nevertheless a very nice kit with an accurate turret (unlike the earlier efforts from this manufacturer). It is suitable for Kursk, with marking options for at least one vehicle that was there, IIRC.

No expert but they look like 1/35th Tamiya models well painted......Meaning, where you want wear, paint on silver, then paint the green, then when the green is still soft scrape gently. That would leave green "flakes" where it glopped to, then later more leaving specs where you miss.

Rust thin the paint and let it run slightly, even smudging and rubbing to get a somewhat surface corrosion...........Lastly the dirt, it sounds silly but use real dirt mixed with thinned cement, paint just to dull again.

Also for the flaking paint and rust add ciggarette/paper ash. It will leave peeled up bits that look as though paint has curled. Think of paint as more of texture then just color. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I bet all of you could do this though not shorting the work.......Lets see your alls stuff as i'd bet you have some surprises as well http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Those are nice models. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif Here is what I've been up to for the past year. A full option R/C 1/16 scale Tiger 1. I have done much scratch building and modifying to it. It now weighs in at a full 14lbs. It's half metal and half plastic. The chassis is full metal as are the tracks and torsion bar suspension. Many photo etch and cast nickel silver pieces as well. I hope to have it done soon. I built this as close to the blue prints as possible except where it was necessary for maintenance reasons like removing batteries etc. If you guys need any model building tips I'm here to help.

She has a pretty backside no? And she's not even finished yet.

That`s a neat model Jag... is this one of the new Tamiyas where you have recoil on the gun, realistic engine sounds, etc?

My biggest beef with Academy panther G, is really bad quality tracks... they just sooo stiff, that refusing to lay down on wheels. I am still looking around for pure rubber ones or even metal.

See for yourself. I had tracks on in early stages:

Yep that's the one. My neighbor has a sherman so I had to build the Tiger to defend my yard. I never tried anything like this before but it was not hard and the electronics just plug in. You should try the Friulmodel tracks for the panther. Even the tracks that come with the 1/35 Tamiya kits are like yours. The only thing you can do to the plastic tracks is to put a small amount of CA between the track links and then hold them in position. It actually works out fairly good. I don't know about the Academy tracks but it works on the Tamiya kits.

I just noticed that you have the 1/25 Panther so I think you will have a hard time finding tracks for it. Plenty for 1/35 just not for 1/25 scale.
This model shop has good prices and a huge selection of parts and kits so it's worth a look anyway. They ordered many parts for me that I was not able to get anywhere else.

Its true. By the time you get down to 1/144th scale. A coat of paint is as thick as a tarpaulin. Getting a good result is then only for the masters. Yufei Mao is a good example.

I had both the Dragon 1:35 Tiger I early and the 1:35 Tiger I late, panther, but they do not interest me. I hoped I would be able to make a Kursk-era by combining the two, but, unlike in the olden days, Dragon isn't giving you a box full of parts for other versions so you had some wiggle room. Both were dedicated, and I was thwarted. I'm holding out for the high-point Tiger I. I'm sticking with my dated Dragon D. I already bought the metal tracks, and I'm going to do the upgrading myself.

Fine Art uses resin and photo-etch on their ships and, I assume, the same on their airplanes, Tater. Too bad that gem of a 110 costs a couple thousand dollars. If some investments ever work out, I'm tempted to buy their HOOD.

Ci, do those tool boxes and gun barrel tool container in aluminum foil or photo etch.

You won't regret it. Might as well let the armor bug bite you all the way.

Frequent flyer....those are amazing http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif. And Im impressed with the photography as well. SEtting those up outside like that is very effective. I thought one of them was a photo of a re-enactment for a second. I only saw the foreground out of focus in one shot, but thats no big deal. You may wanna try a higher F-stop manually selected to keep your depth of field longer. Shooting from a bit of a distance with a telephoto also helps to, but it looks like this is what you didin most of these. Very well built, set up, and photographed sir. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

And Crazy Ivan, Ive not messed with this for 27 yrs, but I usually wound up going for the "just outta the paint shop" look. When I found myself using little balls of putty and making holes with pins in them to simulate muzzles of .50 cal mgs in the wings of a 1/32 P-51B, I decided I had way too much time on my hands, so I took up photography.
