Dragon Wagon M26 Truck Tractor

I've now finished the tractor unit of my Dragon Wagon Tank Transporter. The next job is to finish off the trailer, then the burnt out Sherman which will be the load.

Here are some pictures of the finished tractor unit;

King Tiger Heavy Tank

I've now finished my German King Tiger Heavy Tank, and I'm really pleased with the results. I particularly like the unusual camouflage scheme on it. It depicts a tank from about the time of the German Ardennes Offensive, which took place in late 1944 and became known as the 'Battle of the Bulge'. The only thing I'm not sure about this model is the 'shiny leather' finish on the Commander Figure, I think it should have a slightly more matt finish.

Here are some pictures of the finished model.

40th Birthday News Update

Yesterday was my 40th birthday and my wife bought me the Tamiya U.S. WW2 Field Maintenance Yard, which is, in fact, a re-boxed Italeri kit, but with the 'S' sprue from Tamiya's M26 Recovery Vehicle kit added to it.

Obviously, this goes perfectly with my Dragon Wagon kit, so I have decided to make a large scenic base for it. This will include the Dragon Wagon itself, with a 'burnt out' Sherman as load, the 2 extra crewmen from the Maintenance Yard, plus various other accessory parts.

In other news, I have been working on my Tamiya King Tiger model, and I have also been repainting my Tamiya Jeep model.

I will be posting pictures of all these various projects as and when I am able to.
