Good morning, this is my first time to join Dragon's model of the month contest and incidentally my first time also to make a post in your forum. My entry: DML's 1/72 scale Jagpanther. Except for thinning of the schurzen this was essentially built out of the box and painted using Tamiya acryllics and weathered in pastels and artist's oils.

thank you for the compliment, this is actually my first braille scale in 10+ years or so. i usually work on 35th scale and when i finished this i was pleased with the outcome and hence decided it would be my first post in your forum.

Good job on that one.

I am not familiar with DMLs 1/72 kits - does this one come with the zimmerit moulded on? If not - how did you add it?

Thanks for sharing

thanx for the comment, and yes the zimmerit is molded as shown in the following pix just before i gave her a wash... please take note that the sideskirts at this time were stil thick, so be prepared to thin them if ever you wish to aquire the kit
