Panzer IV ausf. D – step by step

Model kit of Panzer IV ausf. D was produced by Tamiya, in 1:35 scale. The mold is made in the seventies, but I didn’t encounter many problems with assembling. The kit is containing 3 figurines, also, which is nice, it adds some life to it.

MiG 21 PFM

This kit was produced by Romanian brand Hobby Park. It is, as technology used, as old as the plane it’s self 🙂 – so I have to modify a lot, to sand a lot, fill gaps modify parts, etc. … a lot of patience needed to finish it.

It was a little difficult to build this model tank. It was a customized version of British Centurion Mk 5 for IDF needs.

T34/85 – Romanian variant – scale 1:72

Like the Panther earlier, it was a nice kit to build (it comes from Zvezda, too). The little soldiers are from Zvezda, too.

Academy AH64 (IAF) – 1:72 scale

On this model I tried a new type of paints (Hataka lacquer paints). It wasn’t a immediate success, but I’m still learning. The model was painted in IAF cammo.

Zvezda Panzer V (Panther) Ausf D

This was a fun kit to assembly and paint, I had little trouble on the tracks, but the rest of it was pretty okay. About Panzer V (Panther) ausf D:

It was participated in the battle for Kursk (although is D variant, was the first operational of it’s type, A variant was a later one). Has a crew of 5, almost 45 tons and a 75mm main gun – rifled. It was not very a reliable equipment, later variants variants came with improvements.

Type 59 (WZ-120) – 1:35 Scale

The tank is similar withe Russian T54/55 and was the last Chinese tank built with some Soviet assistance, before the diplomatic relationships were severed – internally it was called WZ-120. The model was easy to make – I didn’t paint it very well, but for the first time is okay.
