my first armor model. I was impressed with the quality of this kit. The final
model contains about 800 pieces, including over 200 individual track links.
Dragon’s “Magic Tracks” certainly put a spell on me, as I more than
enjoyed assembling and painting them. The kit is built OOB, and to me it looks
chassis was built first, painted with ALCLAD II Steel then a sand layer was
added. The wheels and tracks were painted separately, and after being added, a
brown wash was added, followed by a silver dry-brush step over the tracks.
upper part was as well first painted with Steel, then Beige, Brown and Green.
Weathering was accomplished by dry-brushing and scratching the top coat until
the bottom steel layer was exposed (a new technique for me).
Kit decals were used, and they performed flawlessly (only 3 German Crosses). Lastly, a final light brown wash was applied to the whole model.
model took a month to complete, and it was a gift for my dear friend’s
birthday. I hope you enjoy.
