Su-85, Dragon 1/35th

Recommended Posts

While I'm waiting for Eduard to ship a spare sprue for my FW190-D9 (i've just had the shipping notice today, with the words that fill all parcels with dread - Parcel Force), I decided to start something different

I remember now why I've gone off Dragon kits - the terrible instructions and the 'bag of bit's' approach to a kit. As an example the instructions refer to the idler wheel being F19 and F20 - but there are 3 separate F sprues, and parts 19 and 20 on all of them isn't an idler wheel......

Anyway the wheels are all made up

And a start has been made on the Hull with the PE grilles, and quite a lot of sanding on the join between the upper and lower hull.

Today's work - started by weathering the hull sides

Then slot the wheels in place temporarily, and proceeded with the fun and games that is Dragon Magic Tracks. Once they've completely cured i'll take the wheels off to paint the tracks
