Dragged a older conversion from the WIP box and started uparmouring it with sandbags. Will need a ton of work before it is done....Zimmerit, 2 crew, personal weapons, large cargo space on the back with munitions, and a towed fueltrailer

Cool!

I 3d printed a turret for mine but I'm not that happy with it.

Loving this especially the wrecks and conversion/restorations. Would like to see more of your shacks also those corrugated walls are inspired. Keep it up.

When the holiday is further along I will crack out the airbrush for a few sessions to basecoat as much as possible so I can start painting again in the evenings....as the pile of ready for basecoat is getting a tad large :)

Another last thing before we leave in the morning...WIP dug in KV-1E for Kursk.

Back home again and way too hot to use the airbrush, back to building it is..... For a smallish toruney in October I need some new bits of kit, so here I go again.

WIP of course.


Fahrschulpanzer.....due to the dire lack of pictures my solution is as good as I can make it. A bit of fantasy perhgaps, but a interesting model none the less....

And thanks Von Lucky. Him, I wonder about using that in Twilight 2000...

So tonight I did something a bit different.




One of the worst models I had the pleasure of assembling. Flash, excess metal between the tracks, mould lines, incomplete cast rack covering the engine. Rmoved the armour plates from the drivers area, sanded it down and replaced with flat plates from plasticcard. Britannia car passenger trimmed and modded as a driver (just needs some goggles). Added the missing horn next to the headlight.

Final details, then paint, and I have a new Barbarossa 37mm/50mm AT gun tractor.

It sounds like a lot of effort, but you have made a cute vehicle.

Sprayed a lot of rustbase this week so I can get washing them all in browns, oranges and blacks.
