The tractor

This is the current status of the SdKfz 11. The sections are not yet glued and that's why the gaps are so big.
I'll start painting it today after installing the suspension.
Hope you like it.


The tractor needs some attention and some dry fitting, but the solutions are just a matter of sanding and filing a little bit. Then all goes in to place like magic.

Hi Antonio. Looks like a great combination. I like your take on the modulation technique a lot, and after filters, should look perfect. Too much contrast would not work IMO, but I think you nailed it.

A small update.
Base coat and modulation done. Still a lot to do but it's moving along, something that's not my usual routine...

This is excellent Antonio! I like your own modulation on this. The effect is apparent but not overly done. Looks like a very good start.

For the first time ever I "kind of" lot the fear to pigments
I'm not sure if this is too much although I think it looks quite good.
The tracks are not painted yet and the interior needs finishing but I wanted to know your opinion about the "look" of the HT.
Fire away...




The black spots on the side panel were not intentional. They are the result of my wheel painting technique - Dremel Painting. It consists of putting the wheel on a Dremel and painting the tires, pottery style . Some times, it just produces side effects. They were removed after the picture... Too bad they weren't brown or it would look quite well LOL

your building and painting is great! I wish I could just do it a bit like you do.

But... I have to keep your wheel painting method in mind, it's the easy way.
How do you fix the wheel onto your dremel?

Thx Szaven

For the wheels I used a toothpick protruding enough foe the wheels to sit flush on the Dremel chuck so that there was no wobbling. The sprockets were a precise fit on the back of a drill bit.
With this technique I painted all the tires on the wheels in under a hour. Not too bad considering they are 7 on each side and there are two tires per wheel.
The good thing is that you can do it even when there is no clear rim line. And the paint tends to go outwards due to the centrifugal force , avoiding spills to the inside.
