Dragons Panther Ausf A Late (6168)

Painted and Weathered for Adding to a Diorama

I wasn’t so pleased with the paint job and found out that one assembly wasn’t right and I went ahead and replaced the barrel cleaning tool that went with the kit. So I replaced it with the Aber R23 Cleaning Rod & Spare Aerial Cannister.

After that final check, I went ahead with the camo painting process. I Primarily used Vallejo Paints for the primer,basecoat and camo. Sprayed Glosscoat Clear Acrylic afterwards and let dry 24 hours.

The next day I then used the MIG Enamel Washes. Let Dry 24 hours and sprayed it with matte acrylic clear coat.

The next day, did some light panel traffic wear with MIG Abeitlung Oils. Did some chipping and dry brushing with Testors Enamel Model Master Paint.
And finally finishing it off  using MIG Pigmets for the final step.

Spraying the “Tri-Camo”

I just finished spraying the two camo colors,they were both Vallejo Model Air German Panzer Colors. I let set for two hours and then sprayed Testors Clear Lacquer Glosscoat, for weathering purposes. I chose Lacquer for it’s fast and tough finish. You can really work it.

Dragon 1/35th Panther A Late “Black Knight” (Kit# 6524)

 

Painted and Weathered

In these last pages,they show the three camo pattern. I used all sorts of mediums,but primarily after the red primer was applied I used Vallejo Acrylics. For the basecoat I used Sand Yellow (#009) for the basecoat and modulation process. For the two other colors for the tri-camo I used Calvary Brown (#137) for Rotbraun. And for Olivgrün I used German Camo Dark Green (#097). The airbrush paint process came out exceptionally well,especially that I was using my brand new Iwata “Ninja Jet” Compressor. I used Testors Dullcote and Glosscote for the clearcoats needed for the “wash” process,and for the final matt look. I used Testor’s Model Master Enamels for the pioneer tools. I used a small pinpoint brush for the chipping,and used MIG 502 Abteilung Oils for the highlights and heavy traffic areas. MIG Pigments was used nicely for the lower hull,tracks and wheel assemblies.These were the primary mediums that I used.

Footnote

I had trouble with the application of the Archer 1/35 medium tall numbers black & white turret transfers (#AR35040B). During the application they were accidently torn,now I had to re-order them and will download up to date pictures,when it’s do      12
