    And after almost fifteen years without building a tank decided to start with the Jagdtiger Dragon 1/35. Having never experienced nor have the necessary equipment will use a paint scheme without Zimmerit. I did it once with the technique of soldering iron.

    The model.

    Jagdtiger Dragon 1/35 JagdTiger001

    Jagdtiger Dragon 1/35 JagdTiger002

    Already started construction. Glued to the front and back of the upper hull, the cannon, and wheels.

    Jagdtiger Dragon 1/35 JagdTiger004

    Jagdtiger Dragon 1/35 JagdTiger005

    Jagdtiger Dragon 1/35 JagdTiger006

    Glued the rear of the lower hull. Once that was done I used plastic rod and liquid cement technique to simulate weld lines along the hull plates in the rear of the tank. The next thing to address was the plates of the armor. These were cut very roughly on the real vehicles. How was the first time I think is not bad.

    Below is the painting of the inside.

    All comments and helps are welcome.

    Thanks for watching.

    It seems to be an old model but it looks OK! Like the torch cut effects you have made...

    Thanks for watching and for your comment.

    I painted the cannon. I know that after the hull closed will not see anything. It will serve to learn and apply the the chipped paint and oils.

    Jagdtiger Dragon 1/35 JagdTiger008

    Jagdtiger Dragon 1/35 JagdTiger009

    Jagdtiger Dragon 1/35 JagdTiger010

    And the learning continues with oils.

    For exhausts stay rough,I applied putty diluted in acetone. Then painted with dark yellow (Tamiya XF-60). After maskol with a sponge at the bottom the exhausts and painted with Red Brown (XF-64 Tamiya). Finally applied oils.

    Hope you enjoy.

    Like the detailed paintwork, I recommend that you change the barrel to a metal one, RB Models have some good ones [not expensive] and include inside rifling, in such a massive gun will add better feature then the plastic one ...

    Ivan thanks but only intend to build three or four models of tanks. My war are aircraft models so do not intend to spend much money on after market products for tanks. Even the models were bought at a low price in a forum and in this case I paid €20.00.

    I completed the painting in interiors. Chipped paint and a wash.

    I think this is going to be fantastic model. How come you left all the hatches closed? Put this model in a diorama showing the crew at rest or in action.
    How's that for a suggestion?? Shocked

    I've been too long without building a model. In the last five years just to build aircraft models so I do not have any materials of scale 1/35.
    I decided to build a tank. I bought three models, a KV-1 from Trumpeter (which serve to experiment with oils and pigments and is finished), and of Dragon, one Ferdinand and one Jagdtiger. Unfortunately not bring figures and Embarassed also never painted a figure.

    Either way I have not glued the hatches. Before joining the two parts of hull, masked by interior with Tamiya tape. I am thinking to leave open the hatch of the commander and perhaps one or two rear hatches.

    KV-1

    Lights. The shadows (very diluted black) will apply them only at the end since I will apply camouflage with the three colors.

    I decided finally make a diorama. As my skills are very weak, I decided to buy a Mini Art diorama.

    Misfortune :-[. The Jagdtiger is too big. It'll be for another.
