M4 Sherman & M26 Dragon Wagon

Tamiya, 1/35 scale

The full range of MIG Pigments is available online from Mission Models


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 .
