Dragon Saladin Mk 2 Finished & 500 Posts

Over the last couple of days I've been working on the base for the Saladin and have now completed the build. The fence & posts came out very well and provide a really good backdrop to the Saladin. The final item to add was a small cap badge for the Queen's Dragoons Guards to the base. So there you have it a Saladin Circa 1967 in Aden. 

I'm extremely pleased with the final model and I think that the dragon kit with a bit of work can be made into an excellent replica of the real vehicle.

Today also marks my 500th post since starting the blog back in 2009. There's certainly been a few models along the way as well as a few trials and tribulations but it's been great fun writing and also receiving feedback and support from some of you. It's also been great meeting people at shows who read the blog. 

So here's to the next 500 and thanks to everyone for reading the blog and supporting it. I hope you've enjoyed it so far!


  1. ..indeed! ..well done and congrats on the 500 posts!

  2. Thank you kindly glad you are enjoying the blog

  3. That's a really nice Saladin! I've got mine semi-assembled during Easter but now it's stalled due to other commitments on the modelling table. When I get around to do further work on it I will for sure study your blog posts REALLY carefully! You've got a very constructive approach to your modelling I think!



  4. Thanks Magnus I'm glad my build will be useful to you. I'm hoping to do a small article soon on the changes that can be made to the model and how easy they are to achieve.
