So this is a bit of a quick project. I built it a week or two ago when bored and wanting to just glue some plastic together..

Dragon's riveted 251c. 90% oob build, a few bits of customisation and detailing for the fun of it (metal racks on the back, some hinges and straps etc, remodelled some seats) It got a base coat of grey and then put aside.

I've decided this is a fine base to have a go at a winter white paintjob.. so will post various progress shots and see what comes out.

To Dragon's credit it is a very neat little kit and for the most part looks a lot like the photos I have of this.. the weak points are internal and not visible for the most part. Some tricky bit of assembly as you would expect from Dragon of course!

Few very basic washes and some rough chips. I'm not going to by any means get a finish on the grey, but I do want it a bit worn and patchy under the white for the best effect.

Never tried a winter/white-wash finish but I have an old Italeri M24 that could be done 'white'. I'll be paying close attention aswell.

Slightly wierd necro-posting I guess, but woke this one up a bit while reorganising my stuff. decided I cant have half made models around, so made the track runs and incidentally built up the panzer-grenadiers that came with it.

Will get the tracks painted and on, then see about some winter camo and weathering.

My model room is full of started stuff :lol:

I have both an Ausf C and Ausf D by DML in different states. They are nice kits, although the suspension setup for the tracks is very finnicky :unsure:

Watching on for the whitewash :)

It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
