They way you manage to maintain such consistent quality of painting over such a quantity of models is very impressive.

Hi guys

I broke out the airbrush today to paint the PzIVs for the 22nd Pz Regt, and my Iwata airbrush wouldnít flow air through it, something wrong with the plunger under the trigger, so I removed it to clean and oil, and being a clumsy git, I dropped it onto my wooden deck, naturally enough it fell between the planks, so Iíll have to order another one, in the mean time I took a trip to my local hobby shop, they had a couple of cheap airbrushes, so cheap they donít even have an name on them anywhere, but funnily enough it did a pretty decent job for my first time on it.

I installed skirts on the PzIVs I had previously painted, and painted those, they donít quite match the tanks, but after adding filters and weathering I hope theyíll look better, any colour variations Iíll put down to the skirts being added to the tanks after arriving at the unit.

I painted up a laffly S45t as a recovery vehicle, Iím going to add a berg-panzer III or IV as well, also did an old print of a Citroen traction to see how it would paint up, I have a couple of ACE kits I can replace it with, or even a better 3D print, but didnít want to waste it, Iíll make up one of the ACE kits and compare them.

Very nice :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*
Is all the spaced armour from the kits or is it scratch built?

All from kits, not all from the kits they are on though, Iíve used PSC skirts on the Hasegawa model and an Italeri model.

Hi guys

Got some details painted on the Pz IVs, added chipping, filters and markings, I didnít have any white turret numbers, (the numbers may actually have been yellow, but Iím going with white) so I used black numbers as a guide and re painted white, 6x Pz IVs and a command Pz IV representing the 3rd company, 1st Battalion, 22nd Pz regt, plus the battalion HQ, with the  commander in a Pz IIIL (yet to be painted) and 2 Pz IVHs, as well as the Laffly S45t as a recovery vehicle (Iíll be adding more recovery vehicles more for modelling purposes) next Iíll add a pin wash, give a dry brush, highlight some details, then start on the weathering.

Hi guys

This 1/72 DAK project for a friend has been bubbling away in the background for a couple of months, and this second stage is finished, now of to work on stage 3, motorcycle recon troops with quite a few figures in relaxed poses.

I see you've added a number of captured equipment into the mix.  That really adds variety to the army.
