Past Builds Dragon Hummel 2004
« on: October 20, 2017, 03:16:39 PM »
This was the old Dragon kit, they later made much nicer newer versions of the Hummel and Hornisse (I think I have the new hornet on my shelf).
Eduard etch set and another company's Barrel (forget the name of the company -Jordio something)
Also used some of the left over Aber pieces from the Jagdpanther set and Tamiya Tools set.

My pathetic attempt at making travel lock components out of styrene



Primer coat on some of the sub assemblies



Finished product

That is crazy well done.

You have not built a Wespe by any chance? I've always been partial to the Wespe for some reason.

No Stagger, it's there on the Shelf, and back then, that one had a reputation as being a very nice kit (as all this generation Tamiya is. Actually when we were kids Tamiya was that company you really wanted to safe your money for because they were top notched. Now those kits still go together nice, but they have no where near the detail of the New Dragon, AFV Club, there's a few others.. and I haven't bought a kit in over ten years, so I'm sure there even more.

I mean this Hummel, the cockpit was really bare. The newer version is a heck of a lot more detailed right out of the box!

The last kit I was working on when I stopped was horrible. It was a 38t Flak Panzer, and there was a new Dragon kit available, but I had already bought this one (It was cheap, but still not worth it). Should've thrown in that trash and grabbed the Dragon one!... You like the Wespe Chasis, I like the 38t.. wanted to build their Artillery version as well.

Best AFV built from the Pz38 chassis was the Jagdpanzer 38 O0
