Thread: Spots on the Net (previously Facebook)

I took a few pictures of the zvezda kit sprues and compared them to the Dragon Ferdinand. I don’t see any similarities with either of the two Dragon kits. So if it’s a Re-box Ferdinand I don’t think it’s from Dragon?

Below the grey sprues are Dragon and the brown is Zvezda.

Cheers Graeme,

Two books in and endless internet trawling turned up lots of reference pictures most of which contradict each other!

The kit is said to be dimensionally incorrect too so probably highly inaccurate.... but like I said a ‘practice peice’ I’ve enjoyed.

Spot on Mr R,

That is Exactly what they arewinkYou’ve won the caravan and motorboat smile d

Something I’ve been playing about with that I can practice some surgery and extra detail on.

Trumpeters T54A, fairly old kit of reasonable quality (I’ve built worse). For this and a box of Am tracks was only 20 odd Great British groats.



Not far from finishing. Think I’m gonna go abstract on the ‘colouring in’cheeky

Ah I see what you mean now.

Nothing worse than making something and not being happy with it....I suppose it’s a big piece of the learning processdont know.

Interesting technique with weathering the hold, certainly not one I recall seeing done beforeface 22

Bit envious that you’ve got to painting stage....I got one finished waiting for paint (VK1601) and a T54A fast approaching the same stage....and no time to get it paintedsad

Not a problem for me, I’m lucky enough to have a fantastic other half that supports my model making.
