This is my 2nd diorama completed,although I'm no pro modeler and I've only been modeling for about 7months I'm happy with the outcome,my first time building a tank and using modeling clay for the zimmerit,what would be a fair price for selling?
The panther is a meng with metal parts and fruil metal tracks.
hope u guys like and thanks

Paul.
And well you should be. Nice layout, base is good. Nothing out of place to me.
If you don't mind saying why are you wanting to sell ? After all that work It seems a shame to part with it.
You ask what would be a fair price for selling.
I've seen models on EBay for sale, and they didn't appear to me to be asking a decent price considering the amount of work .
The whole problem of selling a product, and more so in the craft market is finding customers who are willing to pay a fair price for a one off.
If you take in to account the cost of the materials, and your labour@ £ ? Per hr plus a profit margin
you would get good idea. On the other hand if you just enjoy doing them try to recoup the cost of the model and a bit for the base materials.
I spent a long time in business and tend to see things from that perspective.
See what the others thing, what had you in mind ?

Another way of looking at pricing something is to think about how much you'd be prepared to pay.

Very nice job Paul, I really like the dio base.

I'm building this kit myself at the moment, it goes together beautifully.

How many of the side armour hangers/brackets did you snap off? :tears-of-joy:

I broke and re-glued at least 5.

Agreed, I'm putting Fruil on mine too. I used dress making pins instead of the wire, but still a pain drilling the holes and cleaning up all the flash. :smiling3:

How many links did you use per side?

Thanks for that but I've already made the tracks up. I think I have 97 links in them, I went for a couple extra but can always remove one or two if needed. :smiling3:
