Hello Again,

Today we have the early stage of having the grey and brown colours painted on the panzer 3
I chose Humbrol colours for the tank. The trailer and tractor had been painted in Ammo acrylics and I need to break up the grey to show variation between the tractor manufacturer and the panzer manufacturer.
The Panzer 3's rolled through France pretty quickly and the interpretation was to make the grey and brown look a little sun bleached.(faded grey)
It is early stages as there is a tone of work to do and this is the early stage at present.







Michael

Hello,

Here is the work progress of where I am now.

There was a number of washes and pigments placed around the Tank using Mig Ammo Damp Earth thinned down with the Ammo thinner used in a combination with a mixed airfield dust pigment and thinner applied with a thin brush on the lower hull.

The upper hull was given a coat of the Ammo damp earth and thinned with Ammo Thinner then applied with a wide flat brush.

The upper part of the hull raised surfaces had the Ammo Dunklegrau High Lights and a mix of Ammo grey to bring out the raised sections.

Vellajo acrylic leather was painted on the commanders hatch and the side visors also received a touch of the same colour for the forehead pads.

Mig ammo steel was painted around various edges where the crew would access getting in and out of the tank.

The tyres had been painted in the Ammo Rubber and tire colour. This colour gives a presentation of worn rubber and it's about time someone released this paint.

The track received a coat of Humbrol Matt 29 with a coat of Flat clear.

I then used the Ammo track wash for the external side of the track to give a depth appearance of the track.

The track then received a coat of Humbrol Metal buff 27003 on both the inside and outside of the track to give a the track a worn appearance of travelling all those miles.

There are still a lot of areas around the tank that need rectifying with missing parts.

I hope you like where I am at present as there is a bucket load of work to be completed before mounting onto the trailer.





Michael

Hello again,

Guys, I intend to Travel with the Famo and trailer overseas possibly to Euro, SMC or Moson depending on how the finances are sitting in the next 12 months and I would really enjoy catching up with you to show the workmanship up close and personal.

There will be a transport box made up specifically to hold the Famo and trailer in place for the journey.Similar to the box for the M26 Dragon Wagon that travelled to Euro Militaire back in 2002.

Here is the design below that will be used in the same format to hold and transport the Famo.

The design is to have any movement to be absorbed at the edge of the base.

Hi Mike, love all the work you have done to this beast, the famo and trailer are great kits out of the box, the panzer 3 is excellent, the transport box looks fantastic

Hi Abdin,

Thanks for your comments.Apologies for the late reply have been head down trying to get the right look with the Panzer 3
Will leave this in this stage till I get the Archer vehicle numbers.

Hello,

Back again with a brief update to the Dragon Panzer 3.
It's sort of 99% completed after taking the photo's there is some little tidy detail work to fix up.

Once this is done its moving closer to getting tied down on the trailer deck.
Wow 2 + year project something and just looking forward to seeing her done.

Note
The drive sprocket will be relocated to the 12 'ů' Álock position and glued in place to coincide with the blown away fender.

If I have overlooked anything I am open to suggestions.













Thanks
Michael

Thanks Andrey,

Apologies for the late reply, slightly distracted with 1/32 aircraft.


Have been sparodically trying to clear this second tanker to sit on the rear of the trailer bed.


He is painted with Vellajo paints with Humbrol pink used for the base colour for the face and hands before the oil paints.

The last figure still yet to be assembled. Will tear into these over the Christmas break. More detailed photo's to follow.

Michael
