From plastic to model - a pictorial story
Written by Viper
Here I present a photo-documentary of the stages of building an Armour model kit.
The photographs show the effects of each major step or technique.
I hope this serves to illustrate to the beginner modeller what difference each technique gives, to increase the realism of a plastic kit.
This model is built from the Panzerkampfwagen IV Ausf. F2/G kit from Dragon Models. It is finished in the markings of the German Afrika Corps (DAK) in Tunisia 1942.
