Thsi is the Cyber Hobby kit number 6297. It's built completely out tof the box using all the photo etch etc. that's supplied with the kit. Weathering consists of a pre-shade coat of very dark grey, with lighter and lighter coats being applied until the desired look was acheived. Mig pigments were used afterwards to apply various stains etc.

About Vinnie Branigan (Teacher)


Ola Vinnie Nice painted vehicle this..... looks very good.... I have a question are you yet finished this article or are you still working on it... It seems a bit short on information... Have you got pics of the built itself... did you encounter any problems. Would love to hear this as I know somebody who sells one of these kits and thinking of getting one With friendly greetz Robert Blokker

Excellent work Vinnie ! Do you have any in-progress shots like you usually have ? I have this fine kit myself and wondered if you encountered any fit problems, or any goofs with the instructions ? Again, you did some really nice work here on your Pz Kpfw IV Ausf B. Now I want to start mine Cheers !! Alpen

Thanks Guys! Marcin, I've rcently bought a set of the life colour paints (German camouflage set) to try, but forgot I had them and resorted to Tamiya paints for this. It was basically a custom mix of varying shades of grey. Andy, I used the easy ones! I want to use the ones in hundreds of pieces, but unless I'm going to show them disassembled, there's not much point! Robert, I have kept some in-progress shots, but I can't find them? I'll find them eventually though! I can't remember any specific problems while I was building it though. Vinnie

While some modellers have a lot of apprehnsions about these latest dragon kits, you knock them out at leisure ... and to a high standard. Nice finishing Vinnie. Love the exhaust colours. Its always great tosee the latest kits built up and painted. Your spare parts bin must be quite healthy at this stage!

Definitely looks like your best so far (or maybe its the new camera )

Always have a soft spot for panzer gray finishes and particularly like the way you weathered this one. Very nice!
