Jesper,

An impressive system. Really like the look of the cannon, really look like they are made of metal.

Thanks, Guy. Sometimes it is fun to do these "what if" vehicles.

I have finished my build for this campaign. The 1/48 Dust Tactics 88mm flak vierling.
A great build and aggressive looking.

Looks nice, Guy. The PE is really going to bring that thing to life.



Thanks Mark! So far its been a nice kit. Top and bottom hulls fit perfectly which can sometimes be a real crapshoot with these DML T-34's

More progress. PE for the rear grills and for the ammo can storage is done.


Some knock out marks on the spare track need filling



Turret done. See some spots in the photos that need cleaning up.

Dragon instructions are always a crap-shoot, although I'm finding similar challenges with one of Tamiya's older kits. Looks like you've figured it out. Coming along nicely.




Thanks Mark,
there have been a couple other issues with the instructions that I'll try to point out as I continue with this kit.

got a lot of work done over the weekend. Since this most of this build is a standard DML T-34 I'm going to focus on what's different about this kit. In step 11 of the instructions you are supposed to install the race for the gun mount, and it's supporting beams (parts D1(two of them) and D5). The instructions give no clear location, and there are no marks on the kit to show location. What I did was glue the beams in first, and then center the circular mounting plate.



As you can see with the upper hull removed that there is no logic to how it all mounts. my only thought was to get it centered.


the turret was easy to assemble, and when dry fitted seems to sit properly.

Man I'm late getting started. Just moved back from Mexico City to El Paso. Finally unpacked and ready to try to get some bench time!

Maybe go for a summer 1942 or 43 scheme of basis grey with dark yellow camouflage on top?

That could look good. Looking forward to see more

Best of both worlds: Dark Yellow base color with grey camo.

Congrats on the nice finish Mark! Steve that looks good -- my preference would be the dark yellow / tan option. Cheers, Tat

Looking good, everyone!

I'm mostly built up, but am at an impasse on painting. I don't know whether to go with Grey or Tan.

Typically, I try to find a cool photo to model (pun intended) my model after. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Steve

Thanks, Guys! I was going for a "Hot, dusty Summer of '42" look so lots of pigments, but not a lot of chipping since I figured these didn't last long enough to take a serious beating.

Looks nice, Mark. Subtle weathering without the steel brush car wash approach. I like it.

Congratulations on a great entry!

Mark, Good work. I like the light weathering, makes it look used, but not overdone, considering the vehicle's mission.

Looking forward to seeing those kits come together, Fellas!

Just finished my build, but I obviously need a better photo setup:







This was very nicely detailed kit. Not without some building frustrations, but must be expected on such an intricate kit. Definitely not a beginner kit. Apart from the strip I had to add to fill the mysterious gap in the glacis, everything here is OOB.
