Here is my Dragon Wagon. I used Eduard and Royal Models etch and resin to dress it up a little. It is a fine kit but a little soft in detail in some areas, nothing that canít be fixed with a little work. I primed this with the ARV. The Sherman Mark 1 will be the vehicle on the trailer I think. Or- maybe I'll stick a bunch of German cannons on the back- I have an awesome photo of a DW hauling a bunch of Paks to a storage depot.






Here is my Bergetiger (P) from Dragon. This will be towing my Elephant below. I am still planning a small dio. I have to add the stowage but the weathering is almost complete. I still need to add graphite and some streaks here and there.






And here is the Elephant to go with the Berge shown above. All is nearly complete- this is after 4 sessions of filters using various oils colors- reds, yellows, greens, blues, etc. I like the patina left from the filter treatment- it really adds a depth of realism to the finish.








These are some of my 1st posts here- though I am an avid poster on WW2 Model Maker and Missing Lynx. I like the people here- not as stuffy as some sites can be.

Please take a look and let me know what you think- ALL comments welcomed!

Oh yeah- I know the ARV tracks are backwards on the rear on one side- but I am sure not

I like chipped paint effect you obtain on Berge and Elefant, for me it's very realistic and the mud is also fantastic. I'm looking forward to see ready diorama with this vehicles

Thanks for the comments-

I am still perfecting the chipping- but it is starting to look better.
