Jadgpanther 1:72 Dragon
Besides wanting to add one of these beasts to my display, the “Die Cast Metal Parts Included” intrigued me. The well detailed hull, tub/suspension are cast metal, already primed. Fitting the two pieces together require some filing and adjusting–not easily done with cast metal. The cartoonish instructions left a lot to be desired especially given the multiplicity and complexity of the road wheel system. The rubber tracks took paint well but were sever mm too short. Ended up stretching the tracks over the road wheels and holding them together with staples. The metal suspension was a god send. I finished it with Tamiya paints, Vallejo pigments, and oil paint for streaking and washes. It built up nice despite the challenges.
