1/35th SturmTiger by Tommy Styrvoky, on Flickr

Well here is the completed SturmTiger

My overall thoughts of this Kit
mediocre kit with ok details, the only part that was frustrating about the kit is that the tracks were difficult to mount ( because of flat surfaces on protruding edge) I think I was able to make it somewhat better than the original by adding scratched parts and this build was a interesting experience for my first scratchbuild.

Here are my finished photos of the M-18 Hellcat for the campaign.









I'm overwhelmed by the great models shown in this campaign. And I'm sure there will be more!

Great looking builds on this campaign, hope mine doesn't drag it down too far. The extension means i'm definitely getting in under the wire and so here some progress shots of the Dragon Panther A with Atak zimmerit






It all went together easily enough, the only hitch was that the upper hull didn't sit straight to the back plate. Maybe i'm doing something wrong, but this is my second Dragon A and the first did the same thing. On to the painting:
all primed

final stages on the horizon















Now to pick a couple of these for the gallery

Howdy Y'all
I've had a lot going on in my life, alas, not much modeling time. I only managed to finish one of my tiny 1/144 Dragon Tigers.
This is the Tiger I in the desert scheme.


I wanted to paint the jerry cans a different 'Afrika Korp Yellow' and do some more weathering. I'm calling this one done so I can upload it into the gallery.
Y'all take care,
Don "Lakota"
