  1. The hull is a little warped, at least in my case. Have to heated in water in order to achieve a decent one. Here my result so far. Overall is a really straight forward built with no big issues .
  2. I'm building mine out of the box, so no PE parts, metal gun barrels or metal tracks for this little guy. Started with the wheels, the fitting is a little loose, so make sure you double test the alignment and that all the wheels touch ground before making final fitting.
  3. Hi Guys: Just a few weeks aways to Ipms Nationals!!!! Everything is already in package so what next? well for me, to start a new kit, this time is the Pz.Beob.Wg. III Ausf . H. This obsolete panzer III manage to spent a little more time in service as a Artillery Observation vehicle. A total of 262 such tanks were converted from Panzer III. They featured improved armor protection and the main armament was replaced with a dummy gun that allowed powerful radio equipment to be installed within the tank interior. Manned by a crew of five, these Pz.Beob.Wg.III vehicles served widely with Wespe and Hummel artillery batteries. The Dragon kit specifically depicts an Ausf.H variant of this artillery observation vehicle.

  7. Hi Guys! during the last few weeks I was frustrated with the results of a complex PE kit and lost my "Karma". so I decided to comeback to the basics. Start a kit OOB, and looking on my stash found this really old model kit from Tamiya, the Horch 1A. Horch was a car brand manufactured in Germany by August Horch & Cie. a curious thing I found looking information for this model is that the company Still Exist as AUDI. Audi is the Latin translation of horch, from the German verb "Horchen", which means "Listen" The Audi name was proposed by a son of one of his business partners from Zwickau. Also found that this is the Horch 108 1A.
  8. This is a really amazing example of what you can achieve with a near out of the box model kit, and really great skill on the paint job. Thank for sharing it!
  9. Thanks guys, I'm working on a new Tiger, this time the Zimmerit version of Dragon. Pictures coming soon!
  10. Indeed I did and it was worthy, my second show and its was great! so many wonderful works, I took near 600 pictures! Colorado its beautiful and the people are very kind. I didn't bring any award (my little girl did, with the Hello Kitty Blackbird) but doesn't matter, I make good friends and bring back good experiences and some goodies! You like it? this tank have some history, I was with my wife at Nationals in Orlando and I saw it in the hands of Hobby Link Japan guys but I left it there. I continue looking stuff around in other places and my wife went back with it as a surprise for me. This buddy is again in the workbench, need to change the decals for better ones and tooling for photo-etched parts. Here I put some of the pictures of the event (292) : http://www.ipmsborinqueneers.com/apps/photos/album?albumid=14989685 If you can send me pictures of this one, please do it at: webmaster@ipmsborinqueneers.com thanks!
