Nice - are those tanks?


Welcome to the world of public posting and ridicule... this came out great Bruce - I have to admit to a little bit of a mental strugle when you first presented it to us in person - largely all...

Great building art!

Love the stencil - and the one of the big head is inpired. Sorry to have missed this bench - it really came along great. I think the weathering is coming along nicely - I'm digging the way it is...

Sea growth

Intersting - I was reading this and thinking back on the pilings we have here. Usually encrusted with mussles or barnacle - two things I've never seen in a diorama that I can think of - and have no...

Thumbs up Rockin' base...

and the gun work ain't no slouch. Nice resurrection of a slightly tired kit. The base is really sharp - the pure geometry of the sea wall blocks gives it a very cool look. And yes, a little step...

Pardon the pic quality, but I am playing around with the new booth but don't have the overhead lamp or the parchment in place yet. ...

Flak, Sammy and Suomi-mann, I went with the Manus G. method from AFV mag (somewhere in this string is the volume details).

The real bummer is that Roddy blessed me with his last sheet of vinyl...

Okay, a night of updates...

This evening I'm running up some new pics for a couple of my blogs - all taken over at the Lawler Fabirk. He is trying to impart knowledge to me and I'm getting some great shots to try and emulate...

Okay, no figs yet...

but some better shots while I work on the base. Besides working on my presentation a little, I'm getting some picture coaching from Mr. Lawler - who shot these at his set up:

Thanks for the looks and helps, gents.

Not to hijack Siim's discussion:

Okay - and this is heavily dependent on discussions with LQ, so he gets most of the credit. It's lunch at work, so I'm going from memory.

Hmmmm - how much for the molds? :D

My daughter and a friend of hers spent a couple of hours on a weekend making a road bed for me out of lentils... enough to cover two of those CD covers. I'm liking your idea better. I'm impressed...

Bueno, Dude...

Seriously nice snow and ice action. As i said the other night, - a terrific paint job, with an appropriate amounts of dings, etc. (as in not looking like somebody gave a spin in the dryer with a cup...

New decals

Thanks guys for the support - Dazzer-man, I thought I had explained that earlier, but may have been vague.

I just added the BKs... while correct for the time, I haven't seen any helmet markings on...

Weathered well

Having seen the cell phone sized StuG, it is wild to see it at 4X real size. That warp does jump up a bit - and you sure can't notice it on the real thing.

Every time I see this, I'm trying to...

Beautiful finish

Those surface details really pop against the yellow. I've always dug military rail stuff (don't know why as the regular stuff was never very interesting to me... no anorak genes?),and having been...

Achtung, baby!

Okay - after hitting a lull during the Summer doldrums, Fall is upon us and the season of sitting indoors building while the rains pound down are upon us.

My thanks to Herr Doktor Professor Lawler...

Great comeback, Tony

Don't you just love the feeling of thinking that you've just killed 87 hours of loving labors with the wrong paint job? :D

This looks sharp - I'd stay with it... Oh - and guys who work for the...

Thumbs up Ditto


My point was that I talked to LQ before building, and as a result knew to look for the points he has been sharing here. There just aren't any big glitches - beyond the wheels issue :) -...

Thumbs up I've got it and have built about half

of the total build. I had spoken with LQ off line before I started mine and knew to be careful going into it. That being said, I hava had no problems with assembly. I have noted a couple of...

Cool Great little kit...

when I'm at a impasse with my Panther build, I've been tinkering with this as well. I've got the Cyber Hobby with the vorpanzer (that I'll never use). I've yet to find a problem with it.

Thumbs up Maybe I'm missing something, but

isn't this exactly what you want to have happen? I think it looks exactly like the one's in the photos... is there a specific look you are trying for that I'm not seeing?

I'd do up the road wheel...

Resurrection workshop?

Nice to see you've still been at it, though from a fully lurking work bench. I think I'd have to self medicate if I actually pulled out all of the partials out of my garage and photo'd them :D
