Dragon Sd.Kfz. 164 Nashorn - Büffel oder Haifisch

Hi

I thought I'd start a new project since I only have 2 unfinished awaiting.

Dragons Nashorn premium kit 6314.


I always liked the Nashorn, but it's a opentop vehicle, hence lot of interior detail that needs attention.

Allthough the Dragon kit is very good I intend to to use loads of aftermarket stuff:

Lionroar Armorplates
Lionroar PE
Lionroar barrel
Friul tracks
Tristar wheels and boogies
Armorscale MG34 Barrel
Griffon Model Ammo boxes and belts

I'm planning on doing one of the following 2 vehicles:

A vehicle from s.H.Pz.jg.Abt 88 painted in hard edged cammo.



-
the units symbols of s.H.Pz.jg.Abt 88 I intend to make (print) myself.



The other option is a vehicle from the s.H.Pz.jg.Abt 519, namely Albert Ernst's vehicle named Büffel. This vehicle is depicted in whitewash, so I might go for a summer scheme for this, as everybody seems to do whitewash on their Nashorns now a days.


So far I have assembled the Tristar boogies and attached them to the hull.


I still await the lionroar sets to arrive.
More to follow

\Erik

Nice one Erik!
I love the Nashorn and so I can´t wait to follow your SBS!
I´d vote for hardedge camo. It looks cool on this beast.

Nice going Erik.

I'd go for the first option. Hard edge. The heart makes a nice change too.
Are you going to do the whole scene as well?

Robert

I think I'd go for the 88 vehicle, cool camo and insignia should make for an interesting finish. Good start. Will you be using the Tristar or Dragon wheels?

Thank you all for looking.

Rick: Thanks, glad to be back.

Rob: With the limited building time I have available, I'm gonna concentrate on the vehicle, then we'll see. It could be a very interesting project though.

Evan: I'm gonna use the Tristar wheels as the Dragon ones does'nt fit the Tristar boogies.

An unusual paint scheme. Would be fantastic, if you actually did a scene like the photograph. Whatever you choose; this one will look exceptional.

Cheers
Julian

Hi Darrin, the Tristar boogies are moveable, and the Dragon wheels doesnt fit them to well.
