& M26 Dragon Wagon
Tamiya, 1/35 scale
Here is my 1/35 scale Dragon Wagon
and M4 Sherman, both from Tamiya.
The Dragon Wagon has been fitted
out with Royal Models and Eduard detail sets as well as an Eduard
etch set for the trailer.
The kit has been extensively
modified for accuracy.
The overall project of the M26
Dragon Wagon and Tamiya M4 Sherman had taken 9 months to complete
with a couple of months taken up for the final weathering.
The M4 Sherman has been updated
with photoetch from Aber.
A Resin Tank Workshop Radial engine
assembly was used along with a Verlinden Turret and hull interior.
Internal wiring was added for the
intercom in the turret. The bogie assemblies had been replaced with
an Academy suspension.
The kits received washes of burnt
umber and black oil paints diluted down.
I used various shades of pastels
and Mig pigments to achieve the final appearance .
