Thanks Evan, Actually I will be using one from Verlinden.

Thanks James,

I had not noticed those!! The worse part is that I just read your reply and I already painted it last night!!

I don’t know what I will do, since I would hate to strip it down… we’ll see. Meanwhile here are some pics of the painted hull.





Until next time…

Dave

It seems like I missed the boat and June 6th came and went. Not letting this discourage me I drove on. And talking about discouragement there was the issue with the sink holes on top of the gun mantle that James pointed out.

After some careful consideration I decided not to strip the gun down and fill these. And while some of you may be twitching right now the average Joe will not be able to tell what those are. So with this in mind we move one.

Once the base coat was done I gave it a pin wash over the details using oils.



Next using pigments I applied them in a downward stroke motion to create this washed dirt look on the hull.







I then used my usual mud mix to apply some mud clumps to the suspension and under the fenders.







Then the roadwheels, tracks and the exhausts went on.





Finally I applied the decals and gave the running gear and the lower hull a light overspray of Tamiya buff.









Well, there you have it. Its almost done. I sure missed the deadline but I am sure as hell aint stopping!

Thanks for viewing

Until next time

Dave

Hi Dave
You did really a great job.

You should close the hole in the fenders: Below there was an add. metal sheet to support the flaps.
Regards from Vienna

Thanks Robert!
How are things in Vienna? I hope is nice and cool, here is just way too hot.

Anyways, thanks for pointing out the mud flaps issue. I read your post on Ruben’s thread and made a mental note to fix mine. Unfortunately I forgot about it, but I will get it corrected as soon as I can.

Actually I was thinking of leaving it as it is. The reason is that I built a Stug III B some years back and loaded it with everything but the kitchen sink!! I want to keep this one different so I don’t feel like I am redoing the same thing again.
