Nashorn

Sd.Kfz. 164 Nashorn

 

In the early nineties the first Dragon kit in 1/35 scale was the Nashorn. This early kit soon got a bad reputation, because of its lack of detail and many substantial errors. But this modelling firm seems to learn from its mistakes. Since a few years Dragon provides us with an ever growing range of high tech kits at reasonable prices. This one is no exception. The box is filled with parts that build into an impressive looking tank destroyer. The barrel and breech are beautyfully rendered. Die hards would need etchings and replacement tracks. I built this one straight from the box with minor detailing. The crewfigures are sculpted in Magic sculp around a wire armature.
