Having gotten tired of painting spacemarines and chaos warriors for a while, i'm trying my hand at something different for a change, a Dragon Model Premium kit.
The idea behind them is, one of the older Dragon kits gets updated with photoetch (like those brass etch eagles from FW, only a LOT more elaborate), metal turned barrels, newly tooled detail sprues and all kinds of small 'extras' like metal towing chains, radio antennas, shells etc.
so, heres the whole box of goodies, yum yum!
the little box of figures was a bit of a second choice tough, i at first wanted the DML 6214 Panzer Crew set figures, which are VERY nice, but i couldn't find them anywhere, and when buying the Panther kit, i saw these figures for a grand sum of 2 euros so i bought them "just for the hell of it".
It turns out, they are actually quite fine, not to detailed, but i suppose they'll look fine enough once painted up.
As they are 1:35, they are quite big, they scale out to be about 51MM, which isn't very off from 54MM like Inquisitor (Verlinden Productions actually used to lable 1:35 figures as 54MM)
So, after about an hour of assembling i've assembled the chassis with its suspension.
Oh, and a small size comparison with a pot of paint :-)
So, that'll be one big tank!
Back to sniffing glue then!
