Hobby Boss 1/35 VK4502 (P) Hinten (Kit 82445)

The Kit

Hobby Boss has their kit molded mostly in tan plastic with the individual track links being done in black. The kit provides a detailed suspension and there is quite a bit of detail included inside the turret as well.

Five of the eight construction pages are dedicated to the construction of the turret and its various bits and pieces. You get the gunner’s and commander’s seats as well as the various radios and ammunition storage that was included in the turret. There is also a fully detailed gun breech.

The kit does include photo etch and that consists of three engine cover screens. For a tow cable, a nice length of brass wire is provided.

          The detail on this kit is very well done with high quality detailed  welded seams.

Wash and Chipping

After the modulation process, I went and assembled the wheel and tracks. I sprayed the tracks with Testors Model Master Fieldgrau (RAL 6006) Did a wash with Mig Dark Wash (P220),then a wash with MIG Brown Wash (P221). I then lightly drybrushed with Testors Model Master Steel Enamel (1780). I did this after installing the links and doing a dry fit with the wheels. I rarely do this, I usally install it all at once,then start on the painting process. I did not really care for installing the painted tracks over the painted lower hull and wheel assembly,it was a real pain, I’m going back to the old install all and paint method. After finally finishing that ,I sprayed theTestors Glosscote Lacquer over the whole kit. When dried I did a wash using the MIG Brown,Dark Wash, and MIG Standard Rust (P411) and MIG Oil and Stain (P410) Wash. After allowing drying time I sprayed the Glosscote,let dry and proceded with the chipping. I used the Model Master Fieldgrau. I found out that when I apply a gloss clearcoat and the start the chipping , it works so much easier. The painting goes so smooth on a gloss surface,and if I am not happy with a certain area,I just use a brush thinned with Mineral Spirits. I let dry overnight and today I just finished spraying Testors Lacquer Dullcote.
