Bob's build A Dragon Flakpanzer 38(t) September 14th, All Finished!!

Post  Bob Letterman on Thu Jan 01, 2009 7:31 pm

I will build the Flakpanzer 38(t), Dragon kit, with some photo-etch, scratch parts and after-market tracks. It will be built as a panzerwreck so I can use it later in my current diorama, Logistics.

Got everything I need, now to get started.

Help!

Post  Bob Letterman on Tue Feb 17, 2009 8:19 pm

If anyone has any photos of a flakpanzer that has been destroyed and BURNED, please post them. At the moment, that is all I need to begin work on the extremely little and lethal build,

I have started as of March 11th. The build is almost ready for paint. Lots of damage and lots of aftermarket. I will post photos of prior to painting in the next 2-3 days. I really like the way it is going, I'll see if you guys do.

Bob-
Now you've given me something to look foward to! I've been looking foward to seeing a KOd'd flakpanzer from you. If you like the way it looks, I'm sure it must be good.
Hurry up and start uploading!!!

Well, here are the subassemblies for the Little but Lethal build. This will be built as a completed destroyed, burned out vehicle. That is the reason for so many parts yet assembled at base coat time. As there will be much rubble and parts that have been blown off, I will try to figure a way to display it finished for the build.
Before base coat

After base coat


This will also be used in my new diorama, Logistics!

Thanks Jenny and Laura,

Yeah, the gun is also gonna be fun to weather!!!!!!!! I'm joking! I usually paint almost all parts even if I am not going to use them, especially if they are duplicate parts, you never know when you are gonna mess up something. I have some good ideas on the burned out effects and processes, so I am looking forward to this, the Mercedes and Searchlight and the PZ IVJ.

All three will be built as wrecks.

Thanks again, Noel,

As I mentioned before, don't raise your expectations. I THINK I can do it, we'll see. One thing is for sure, I be cramming on "Panzerwrecks", and some of Mig's books!

Thanks Matt and Massimo,

I have some photographing to do and then, Monday I will start finishing the flakpanzer. Actually, I am looking forward to it because it is something I have never attempted, at least not on this scale, before!

I have my fingers crossed!
