I have been curious about working with 1:72 for a while. I started an Italeri kit, but the lack of quality was a turnoff, especially at this small scale. Dragon 1:72 kits are a different story. In one afternoon, this kit went from sprues to basecoat. Yes, it's a side-side-side project, but I wanted to try a smaller kit and experiment with less drawn-out painting procedures.

The parts out of the box. There is a nice little fret of PE, but it is very thin and it took extra care to remove and add the parts. The tracks are "Dragon DS" and they are way better than the old vinyl tracks from older kits.

Camo done in field gray, with the knowledge that washes would darken the color significantly.

So tiny ... too tiny for my sore eyes I'm afraid. And my clumzy fingers.

Is it home made Zimmerit ?

Oooh yeah, some tiny parts here. Probably the smallest PS parts I've ever worked with and it has brought home to me that my bifocals REALLY need an update.

The zim' is actually molded on . . . I have a Jagdpanther with molded-in waffle zim', too which is cool because I don't think i'd want to attempt it at 1:72. . .

Thanks for the information.
I'm amazed at the level of details they put in these "braille" kits nowadays ... I was raised with the old Airfix kits ...

You should see some of the PE that comes with them. I bought Eduard's 1:72 Sherman M4A3 76(W) and it came with PE headlight guards. Dragon's 1:72 PE is almost foil-thin, so it takes some care. . .

I'm afraid if I were to use these PE sets, they'd only be useful to feed the carpet monster !
LOL.
too small for me.
