Jagdpanther (late) - Tamiya 1/48
« on: April 16, 2020, 07:09:15 PM »
This kit has a special story...

4 or 5 years ago, when I was practicing martial arts, one of my fellow "warrior" asked me to learn him how to build a model. He was interested by tanks. I proposed him to build that Jagdpanther that I had in my stock. He began the work and I must say was good; but life being what she is, he didn't had the time to continue... So the kit was sleeping on my stash since then.

Yesterday my eyes falled on the box art. I decided to continue the kit. But as I wish to use another camo, today I've first airbrushed white primer on the wheels and the bottom of the chassis, the parts my friend had already painted...

Thank you friends!

Well, I've decided to repaint the tracks. My friend did a very good work on it but as I take the job, it's all the job ;-)
So, primer airbrushed on one face; tomorrow (or later) the second one.

I've also airbrushed gloss varnish on the wheels and the lower part of the chassis

Yes, as you says, just a base paint. Lot of work to do after...  :-green
