Porsche Tiger Panzerkampfwagen VI(P) German Heavy Tank Dragon 1/35

スポンサーリンク

It is a premium edition of the Porsche Tiger with many photo-etched parts. I made it from February to March 2014.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 BOX PACKAGELast time I made Zimmerit Coating pre-molded King Tiger. I want to make a coating myself after a long time, so I choose this Porsche Tiger. By the way, Last night, Figure skating at the 2014 Winter Olympics – Men’s singles were terrific; I had been looking till the morning after all.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGSuspensions are movable.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGI think the front part armor is a little challenging to assemble; it’s better to fix and paste immediately after trial assembly.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGThe sprocket wheels can be adjusted back and forward. It’s comparatively easy to connect caterpillar parts.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGSlacking of the caterpillar is very good-looking. It is one of the considerable charms of Tiger tanks.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGLion Roar’s coating stamp appearance is bright but inaccurate as an industrial commodity. Slightly regrettable, although it is valid without a shaft. This stamp fitting with the shaft is not good, unmatched sized. It may be only my purchased one; I’m not sure.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGI failed. The left caterpillar position is too high, and it hits a fender. I cannot make it further unless I adjust it. The slack condition of the caterpillar is considerably pleasing, and my mind did not turn to that position.
(16-February-2014)

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGI corrected it as a sprocket wheel; the caterpillar was shifted downward somehow, and the fender is now fitting in. Part of the front caterpillar parts is removed once and attached again. These photo-etched parts are pretty good.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGSince the etched parts did not fit on the front armor plate well, I raised the height of this armor plate’s thickness with epoxy putty.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGZimmerit pre-molded kit is an easy and regular pattern. It looks good. But coating by myself is also good, where the coating peeling and unevenness emphasize handmade taste.
(Real tank Zimmerit was coated in the factory, I suppose.)

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGGepackkasten (toolbox) fastener photo-etched parts assemble required quite delicate work. After Gepackkasten attached, I’m afraid I can’t see the reserve caterpillar, which is a good accent. It’s too small and my eyes hurt…

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGThis wire net etching is also required detailed work. I used instant glue.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGPorsche Tiger’s weight balance is quite front-forward.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGI want to raise a telescope from a hatch; it’s opened. Somehow I can set up a figure on the left square hatch. For putting a figure, I felt it was slightly narrow.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGI used the photo-etched parts where the appearance is better than plastic parts. The aluminum gun barrel is effective for a sharp straight impression.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGI heard that the gun turret was turned under transportation, as in this photo.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGIn the photo from just beside the epoxy putty, which has overflowed into the lower side of the gun turret, it is not shaved exactly; the appearance is terrible, so I’ll remove them later.
Since I’m working while looking at slant angles, careful about the upper side but not the lower edge.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 MAKING GERMAN TANK CREWThe last time I used the Hornet resin headset and I liked it. This time continues to use them. For the right tank crew, the sleeve interfered with the hatch when the hand was put on it. I adjust the sleeve shape. I tried to make the shape of the skull mark of the garrison cap.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 MAKING GERMAN TANK CREWThis crew is relaxed posing, so having no cap. This body is from the Dragon Models tank crew.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 MAKING GERMAN TANK CREWMaybe because of the lighting, the cloth of the garrison cap looks thick, but not so much… I have to fill in the gap in the neck. These days everyday cold in Tokyo….. Not having felt the painting. I want to make a small AFV and place it with this giant Porsche Tiger.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGIt is the painting after a long absence. I mixed white with the surfacer and lightened it.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 PAINTINGPainted in the base color of dark yellow.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 PAINTINGCamouflage of the dark green. Color is not good enough whether the white balance of the photograph is not adjusted correctly, maybe.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 PAINTINGAssembling and painting photos cannot make a fresh start. I made dark yellow, dark green, and red-brown these three colors. I feel it’s a good color after I coordinate the white balance. I painted it a little brighter than the original bottle and adjusted the brightness later.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 PAINTINGIt’s warm today, and I can open my window and paint this model, but cedar pollinosis is serious for me now… I sometimes painted caterpillar tracks with an airbrush, but this time by brush. A work procedure was changed for a feeling at that time in various ways. The vehicle number decal should have been attached a little upper position, but I think this is the best even though it’s different from the instruction.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 PAINTING GERMAN TANK CREWWill I say it’s the Oakleaf pattern camouflage? It’s an autumn-version jacket. The base color is Tamiya flat earth, It may be a four-colored constitution, but if I put another color and a good atmosphere, it ends and finishes.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 PAINTINGThe body color settled down after I performed the washing. It is almost complete.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTODragon Models Porsche Tiger was completed. This tank’s center of gravity is the considerably front side and has a strange shape. It’s a rare tank, and this dragon model kit is also valuable.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTOWhen the battle opened, the German army encountered the Russian high-performance tank on the Eastern Front. Germany was approached by the development of the heavy tank, which was more powerful than a mark IV tank. Porsche and Henschel competed in the heavy tank development competition, and Henshel won it.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTOAt least two tanks seemed to be fully deployed. I think these two had no great success. There were around 90 machine parts that were produced halfway switched to Ferdinand and Elephant heavy tank destroyer.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTODragon models had a great job in making this rare tank kit. It’s not a major tank; it was a considerably enthusiastic item. The words are bad, but “are a rejected, failed tank.”

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTOI had light weathering with acrylic resin and pastels. Caterpillar tracks are big and cool, so I wouldn’t say I liked hard weathering.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTORegarding wood stock painting, after having painted in sail color (I mixed buff and white of Tamiya enamel), I shaded off some borders, but not so good work and needed more improvement.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTOThere is no regular pattern of camouflage. The pattern on the gun turret is a little more detailed than the body.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTOThe camouflage pattern resembles the Tiger late-type displayed in the Saumur Tank Museum in France, but the primary color is dark yellow because it’s not yet WWII latter period.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTOThis tank belonged to the 653rd heavy tank destroyer battalion, the same as the Elephant tanks.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTOOn the flat panel, I expressed muddy water gathered and dried. I suppose the modest weathering is enough for the camouflage pattern; this pattern variation has many eye-catch points.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTO GERMAN TANK CREWI challenged an Autumn Oak Leaf pattern. Based on Tamiya Flat Earth, I pictured a dot after some wrinkled parts in a dark color.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTO GERMAN TANK CREWIt’s four colors of camouflage, but salmon pink is unnecessary. This tank crew rank is private.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTO GERMAN TANK CREWA back shot is lonely. I think the camouflage pattern finish work is good.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTO GERMAN TANK CREWThe above crew has red hair, and this captain has blond, not captain, maybe second lieutenant. It’s a detailed point; I made a periscope lens colored dark green and covered gloss clear, and I’m satisfied with it.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTO GERMAN TANK CREWThat is a perfect expression. This man’s eyes are blue, and the other is light gray. When it’s light gray, it’s hard to give an expression. That should have been darker.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTO GERMAN TANK CREWI should have coated the escape hatch more carefully. But the carving was deep, and the shadow of the washing looked good contrast.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTOThe spare caterpillar has old rust, and using the caterpillar has not, some points are shining.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTOI suppose it’s a better and stronger feeling for a heavy tank’s camouflage pattern to be more significant and bolder.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTOI suppose the coating on the caterpillar fender was not needed, but there’s the box art picture.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTOAs the tank crew has the mold of the many medals, I took a ceremonial photograph. I felt the medal was too big. This tank crew has many decorations, so skillful and reliable.

PORSCHE TIGER PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTOThe Gun turret is turned to the back, its moving position. It’s a German heavy tank, and some points are the same as the last King Tiger, but with many different processes; it’s happy modeling all around.
