Here is my 1/35 Dragon early type Jagdpanther. Although I have been building models for years, this is my first tracked armor model. I picked this model kit up at a vendors table and figured it would be a great kit to start with and hopefully learn a few new techniques, which I did.

The kit was molded without any of the Zimmerit coating, so all of it was applied to the hull using "Elmer's" wood filler. The tracks are all individual track segments, and not the patented "magic tracks", all were attached to sprues at 2 attachment points, (over 200 links multiplied by two attachment points equals a very tedious task). 

Washes were done using oil paints, and I used Tamiya buff as a filter coat. I hope you enjoy these pics, looking forward to my next tracked vehicle... Cheers!
