EnsignExpendabl I ended up with three PzI command tanks. I bought the Italeri first, for the rusty tank diorama where I wanted a cheap, small kit. Then I saw the Dragon one at a price I couldn't pass up. The MB kit was the first time I ever saw a PzI Ausf. A command tank, plus there was an intriguing sticker on the box: "Bonus Dragon tracks and PE". I couldn't pass that one up either, so here we are.

Upon opening the boxes, I was pleasantly surprised. Dragon threw in the standard sprue full of spare wheels, the Italeri box had a set of link to link tracks inside (manufacturer not labelled), but the Master Box was the most surprising of all. Inside was a whole bag of goodies marked Dragon USA, including four sprues of track links (these might be Dragon, but they're not Magic Tracks) and suspension bits, and a huge photo etch fret, much bigger than the one that came with the original kit (that one is still included in the box and only includes the muffler meshes). Looks like I'll be able to beef up both of the "weaker" kits with superior Dragon components! Stay tuned!

reisender.ab Hi Ensign, looks as if you have made already some progress. Just some comments from my side. The Dragon shows the first or second production typ. I only know three-colour-schema Reichswehr vehicles with this antenna arrangement. The Italerie is in its configuration (extra armour on the front, storage box on the rear and the air inlets a tropical version. Maybe the Dragon has some spare parts to make it a European, if you want. The masterbox is a nice one too, but I will build mine with a chassis from Tristar as I prefer their level of detail. Enjoy your build and let us see how it looks in the end. You can find some good pictures in the Tankograd Wehrmacht Special No 4009.

EnsignExpendabl reisender.ab Oh, I already did a gray painting scheme that I am very happy with :( I should have known better than to trust the manual with colour schemes.
08. September at 15:42:55
reisender.ab Hi Ensign, maybe someone knows how the few vehicles, which received the antenna frame, where used later. If they have been upgraded to actual standard in the later years, they may have removed the frame antenna.

30. July at 17:56:06
EnsignExpendabl Thank you! Markus and Rui!

I've seen the camo scheme on pictures of other British tanks, but not the Crusader. I messed up the edge of one of the brown spots, which inspired me to try it out.

03. May at 05:49:37
EnsignExpendabl I tried assembling the track links... boy, are they a pain in the ass. I would much rather prefer the Academy ones. These are really hard to cut off the sprue without the plastic shattering, and even if you do get intact pieces off it takes way too much effort to actually make them workable.

gorbygould Nice little dio. Out of interest, do you know why it has rip saw on the side? Just seems an odd thing for an armoured car to have - is the Black & Decker Workmate inside?
17. April at 20:01:26
EnsignExpendabl Saws are pretty standard instruments for Soviet armoured vehicles, the T-34 has a big two-man one on the side. I suspect it's used in case you need to make The Log https://tankarchives.blogspot.ca/2016/03/the-log.html
17. April at 20:14:00
gorbygould Thanks for clearing that up. Not being a tanky person I was a little confused.
