1/35 Dragon "Falshirmjaeger Tank Hunters"

Posted by gerry7944 on 19 Feb 2017, 16:15

This is a small vignette using Dragon figures depicting the desperate days in the bocage as the German troops try to defend against the allies after D Day.

I have used Vallejo model paints on the figures and the base is an old picture frame.

Cheers

Gerry

Great job. Love the details on the straps, packs, buckles, belts etc. I also dig the camo patterns, and you do a great job with the scenery and faces.

Hi Gerry, fantastic as usual and certainly setting the bar.

If I may respectfully suggest that the arm joins would benefit from a little light filling?

I personally like to use natural materials for scenery. I am not sure how Guagemaster products would look in 1/35 but it certainly works in 20 mm.

Best wishes, as always.

This was one of my first dios after getting back into the hobby.

I was a bit lazy then and did not fill or sand joints which I should have done.

I too will use natural products but sometimes the problem is getting them into scale which I find a bit easier using synthetic products.
