Very nice built.

I wouldn't have choosen a Dragon Premium kit as my return kit but to each is own :-) Did you have any difficulty with the smaller PE parts? I must say that I'm a little afraid to start working with PE. We didn't have these 25 years ago (at least not included in the kit).

What primer did you used? Looks like some red car primer?

The return was earlier this summer. This is actually my 5th kit

The PE parts are not a problem. Just have take your time.

Ya its automotive primer, it shrinks nicely and goes on nice and thin.

Help! I'm having a really hard time finding colour pictures of the Nashorn (go figure). What i'm looking for in particular are pics of the gun. What colour was the breech, position wheels, ect.





I think the site assembly was black and maybe the one solid wheel on the left had some tan/brown covering on it but thats all i can find

help

cheers

The Pic of the interior on this site seems to show the sights black with some parts unpainted metal. Since they were removable I would guess a black paint/finish.

The Gun breach would of course be bare metal with black powder. I would think all else would be painted variations of the base yellow/brown color .

Well it's almost done! Just have to add some more details like the spare track and road wheels and stuff.

Very very very nice!
Just one note: the joint between the two halves of the gun breech is clearly visible!

Nice save on the seam Rick. A question on the rear mounted MG, the barrel, particularly in the last pic, looks strange....is it missing it's cooling jacket?

I think that its an from MG-34 I got it from Tamyia's Tiger 1 initial. The instructions don'teven list it so i used it on the Nash'. I just think it needs better definition of the holes in the barrel sleeve.
