Hello, I my name is Tibor and I'm new to the forum. Would like to join this group build with this:


I plan a winterized model, hope it is OK. As far as I understand correctly the deadline of the build is 30 September 2009, am I correct? Is it possible to have here more models?

Best regards
Tibor

OOTB, no real big update, maybe some evergreen hard to tell right now exactly what as the kit is not out yet, but I think the the model will be still the OOTB category :-)

Put some stuff into the gallery already. The introduction forum is the "Jennys Friends" part?

Thanks, AMS is certainly not me :-), I like it simple and quick, focused more on the painting

Hi all, just received this kit an hour ago. I have the new grille M also, so the content of the box was not a big surprise. It is a new smart kit, state of art engineering, love to get lost watching these tiny parts. I think it will be a nice OOTB model. Will begin the build soon and post some pic. Btw there was a topic recently about the increasing prices of the models, so the price for this one without shipping was 25 USD Wink but I think the suggested retail price is OK for this kit, it is spectacular... Very Happy

Regards
Tibor

Hi all, was just comparing the kit accuracy with available references, and I surprisingly found out that the kit is missing the elevated floor with the anti-skid steel plates on it. This part will have to be re-built from scratch. Will try to make some pic next week.

I really look forward to your build, Tibor!

This one has been on my "must buy" list since it was released. Will follow this one with great interest.

I'm a little surprised about the missing floor. But then no kit is perfect.

Hi All, finally got some time to work on the model.
Not a big progress but I have made some pic also.


To make it possible to work later on the interior without damaging the suspension I'll elevate the model a bit.



One thing to mention, I couldnt find pic of the ausf. G 38t suspension arms but the earlier versions /museum reference/ show no holes on the the arm. Also checked a tristar kit, no holes either,so I filled the 2 holes present on the dragon kit. The engine cover plate on the back need some attention and sanding when assembling the kit.

Not really a nut counter or picker, but I collect historical and technical reference. So at least I'll know where do I make the mistakes.


Some more filling is required on the drive sprocket and the idler wheel also before I can put the magic track on the vehicle. Bit afraid of the sag, but I'll see. Hope I can make some progress this week.

Some technical questions, are there any requirements on photographs, or are SBS or built model without paint pic required? Any preferred background color?

Any comments welcome

Regards
Tibor

looking good Tibor!

The photos are very clear!

In my opinion White background is more preferred with magazine editors. Also the more SBS pics you have the better!

Hello guys and girls, I'm so happy to get all that support. Makes me motivated to finish the grille in time. We have been out in Prague for the weekend. It was the E-day contest, managed to work on that model also.
The airbrush work is done. Some oils are applied. Some parts are just drying and need to be blended. I also managed to make some basic rust effects on the exhaust. It will be finer later. The paint used for this is the Lifecolor rust and dust set.








I'm working on the grille at the MMC club exposition.

Hello girls and guys , I think I managed to finish the grille. What a Face Took me some long night hours to make it in time Shocked, unfortunately I'm rather a slow modeler. I might add some more scratches and stains but it can be considered finished.
Hope you like it. Any comments are welcome. Here are the pic:
