Sherman Firefly practically done :) I got this model in 2013, as my first newly purchased kit in 1:72, painted it to a meh standard, then gave it away. Earlier this year I bought a huge ass collection (approx. 60 vehicles and a couple hundred infantry), and it was included there. I've decided to refurbish it - added a PSC commander, some stowage, fired up my airbrush and AK Real Color paints, and ta-da - I think it turned out really nicely.

It has.

Wait - you didn't get the same model pack in that massive haul?!

I did :) But it was only sprayed with olive drab, and then drybrushed with a lighter shade. It also had the hull MG, so I had to hide that too somehow, that's why the stowage is put on.

Time for an update!

I've painted mostly 15mm recently (I'll take a lot of photos once I don't feel like my balls are playing water polo in my pants), but yesterday I've come across an Armourfast model from the February lot, and I thought "what the hell", so slapped some paint on it.



Also, I know that black muzzle break is wrong, but eh.

Agree - I'm liking the dust weathering.

Another 1:35 figure, this time it's an Academy SS infantryman with a Panzerfaust. The kit is a year younger than me, and this is the figure I like the least from the kit tbh.
