Panzerbefehlswagen I (Sd.Kfz. 265) - Dragon 6222)

Hello everyone,
Long time no posts here but as I always cry on my blog I have no time for modelling (that means really little free time in reality) but now I introduce a very slow build. The kit is Dragon's 3in1 upgraded with Lion Roar PE. Unfortunately there are not too much in-progress photos taken. My goal was to practice soldering + learn winter wash painting. Well, the PE really gave me the opportunity to learn (the results are questionable...). With pieces like these:





With as much upgrade as I was able to do finally I primed this little vehicle...



... got its grey coat, transfers and a lot of my wife's hairspray...





And then followed the white...





Now the funny part, rubbing the white with wet brush and later some additional white paint to reach an uneven, worn outlook. Weathered with pigments, muddy paste made of acrylic resin and pigments and some washes with oils (the spare track was rusted with Model Color paint).







That's how the vehicle looks like nowadays.
Next post will be the dio...

The diorama base...

I used Miniart's easy small scene - a wall with gate, nothing too serious. Lots of sanding and filling but I think it worths it. Primed with black (the most dumb decision of me during this build so far... snowy diorama, yellow wall and base of black...)



When painted the wall (LOTS of yellow was needed) I gave some color to the bricks and later I started the snow-process using sodium-bicarbonate with white glue. I think the result was quite OK.



The door was quite poor quality in the kit so I decided to do it myself from McDonald's stirring sticks and some PE. Painted with gouache and looks like this:









... and the latest state of the scene with door installed and a broom added:



That's all for now. Next update in a few months' time
Cheers,
Zsolt

A nice little scene! I agree the snow, and cobblestone are awesome. As well as the scratched door.

Small update

Three years passed since the last update. This weekend I finished one of the figures and I'm quite sure that in the next three years I'll finish the next as well
