Mark,

Very nice finish with your build. This has always been one of my favorite AFV. Nice to see another one built and not overly weathered.

Mark



Thanks for the positive comments

Thanks everyone for the comments.

The build is now complete. I did a little weathering, which I usually don't do. Overall, I'm happy with the build.









Looking forward to seeing everyone else's builds completed.

Finally got the Dicker Max started. Step 1 and 2 done. All the wheels and the movable boggies took quite some time....
Nice detail, but some ejectionmarks and seams on the leaf springs but I didn't care to fix it as it will never be seen behind the wheels

Back from my latest trip and finished principle assembly. I will probably do some simple weathering, but not a lot.

Looks good, Mark! Is that black-brown with metallic highlights?

Welcome to the campaign, Tom! Looking forward to more of that kit!




I used AK's Track Primer then used TS-42, light gun metal. Still needs some weathering

Thanks for all the positive comments.

I managed to get the tracks primed and painted. Will start on some simple weathering when I get back.

Back from one trip, heading out on another one. But did get the tools installed. Need to get the tracks painted next.

I'm a slow builder, but I'll try to post some progress photoes. Just have to clear a Jagdpanther of the bench before I start :-)
Will you do your Dicker Max for the capaign?



No, I am building a Panzer IV Ausf. D for the campaign.

Nice Choice Atle. There were a lot of reviews around when the Fat Max was first released, and many complained about the fit of the rear and inner hull components. However, when I built mine I had no gaps or trouble at all because I took my time and test fit everything. The key is have the major components cleaned up and ready to assemble and do them together... don't do part and then come back later or you may find it difficult to get parts lined up properly.

I assembled the upper hull components and fit to the hull as one assembly after painting too - leaving the episcopes that poke up through the roof off of course. It takes a bit of patience to get it into place that way but I thought it was worth the effort.

Have fun.

Excellent timing with the Dicker Max. I have the same kit, PE and tracks. This will be one build I will be very interested in following. Details, give me details.....

Hi everyone - lots of inspiring work going on here.

I've had this 1/35 Dicker Max by Dragon in the stash for quite a while. Figured out that a campaign might be the thing to get started. Guess the kit qualifies with the Voyager PE and Friuls?
