Rene Scheiblich I might just try that. Starting with something really simple like spanjaard suggested. Plaster and paint should suffice for a runway :D Missing a plane with extended landing gear though :P
14. April 2018 at 16:36:03
Martin Oostrom Take plaster and some brown paint. Mix and sculpt. Some shading and dirtying it up and voila, a Panther in the mud.
14. April 2018 at 16:58:04
Rene Scheiblich I'm not the Panther builder. ;) just hijacking :D
14. April 2018 at 17:17:00
Martin Oostrom Naughty you. I knew that of course, ahem, I could have known.
14. April 2018 at 17:49:33
Lennart Why did you buy the "Late Production Tracks & Movable Running Gear Parts" (sand color) but still used the default tracks(black color)?
23. October 2018 at 18:53:36
Dennis Hey Lennart - the Suspension Kit had black track links. They maybe changed it to sand with the release of the Jagdpanther.

(they were also identical to the kit links, which in hindsight feels a bit like a rip-off, but given that the kit aint too expensive I can live with that ;) )
24. October 2018 at 07:02:25
Lennart Oh ok. I have the same kit and mine are sand color. Also the chain links are connected to the sprues only on two point (the normal one are connected on 6 points) They look like this: https://imgur.com/a/z78tBtd
26. October 2018 at 16:36:27
Dennis Ah I see! Looks like the later batches of the kit got improved track links. Mine seriously was identical to the basic track links in the kit itself. :)

Sören Reifert Great work so far
17. July 2018 at 11:59:52
Timothy Heimer Hey! I got one too! LOL How's the kit and PE working, any issues yet?
17. July 2018 at 16:08:32
Dennis Thanks a lot already, guys! It means a lot to me! :D

Timothy: the PE has it's usual challenges in fiddly-bit-stuff while the kit fors like a glove! It's simply marvellous!

Unless the weather keeps getting hotter and more humid, I hope to have the basic paint job and decals done by the weekend so I can start weathering! :)
17. July 2018 at 21:19:40
James C Looking very good.
17. July 2018 at 21:25:56
Dennis Aaaaaaand it's finished - while I wasn't too happy with the combination of blackbasing and postshading, I think that oils and weathering really pulled the paintjob together.

All in all a very enjoyable kit and I feel like I managed to improve somewhat in my workmanship. :)
26. August 2018 at 12:05:13
Timothy Heimer That's great that you've improved your skills on this because it does look good!! Nice work! I hope mine looks as good.
26. August 2018 at 14:08:06
Spanjaard Very nice job!

Dennis Thanks so much, Konrad and Martin! Got the weapons built, will prime and paint them in 2018, decal it all up and should yet finish during my vacation :D
31. December 2017 at 13:49:40
Dennis So, I dare to call that one finished! The kit itself has been an absolute pleasure to build save for some verrrryyyyyy few things, that were a bit ambigous in the manual, some fiddly things and some decals that are bigger than on the decal instructions.

All in all I cursed far, far less than with my late Revell kits and I already decided on getting another Academy F-4 in the near future!

Worksmanship-wise: it's a bit mixed. I managed to damage the chevron-decal (but think I fixed it alright), had some major airbrushing hiccups - could have been better, but it still has been a ton of fun AND I think I managed to rectify all major errors rather nicely so I am really proud right now.

Next kit will be a smaller / faster / quicker one, though :D
13. January 2018 at 13:51:55
Konrad Limmer Wow that looks really fantastic! Great Job on this spook .
13. January 2018 at 15:14:13
Spanjaard really nice, good reason to be proud. and very nice modelling corner by the way.

Spanjaard i am in :) curious about this one. nice blue color :)
26. January 2018 at 07:40:50
Dennis Yeah, isn't that gorgeous? I am positively in love with that one, too! :D

The kit itself is neat, it's mabye less than 50 parts, 30+ years old and you still can throw some glue into the package, give it a shake and a completed plane falls out. Gotta love Tamiya in that regard! :D
26. January 2018 at 08:07:02
Spanjaard indeed :)
26. January 2018 at 08:52:31
Miro Herold Nice Aotake colour, but the instrument panel should be painted in interior colour.
26. January 2018 at 13:11:09
Dennis According to the instructions, the instrument panel is metallic blue, too. I was wondering if it's actually any different, but I like it better that way. :)
26. January 2018 at 13:41:28
Dennis That said: some quick googling shows every A6M cockpit painted in a "regular" greenish color, where the Tamiya instructions clearly state "metallic blue-green" (actually metallic blue X-13). Did that switch at some point in the war?

I don't mind, since I am not aiming for historical accuracy here, but it leaves me wondering...
26. January 2018 at 13:45:18
Dennis Checked some Instructions of Tamiya kits that are not as old (the A6M3 here is from the 80s) and there the cockpits are painted in cockpit green, thusly: the instructions are simply wrong. The more you know! :)
26. January 2018 at 14:03:22
Spanjaard as long as you like it :)
26. January 2018 at 15:23:19
Dennis Ah, I'm fine! It *is* gorgeous and a 14€-kit, can still improve on that and want to build an A6M2 at some point anyway :)

(saving it now is nigh impossible too, or at least far too much effort)
26. January 2018 at 15:37:30
Spanjaard I have the Tamiya A6M2 in my stash, plus some resin etc.... i am sure will be a great fun. i just do not have a clue when :D
26. January 2018 at 22:03:26
