Nice and clean build, Fletcher.

I like the idea and the way you have attached the spare tracks
And I also would like to know if you have used brass for the antenna.

Thanks and regards,

Notger

Nice one Fletcher! This is one German panzer I might be tempted to build. Would look good next to a desert Allied AFV imho.
What scheme are going to represent?

Cheers, MartinD

Thank you Rick, John, Marek, Siim, Mattias, Giacomo, Sheeds, Krzysztof, Marco, Notger, Yingbo, and Martin.

Yep, the antenna is brass.

@Siim, the berge is still going; it's about ready for paint.

@Martin, I think it will be panzergrey.

Paint!

Well, I figured I'd post an update on this. I haven't modeled at all in about 4 years now - mostly due to school and other commitments. This summer, I'm getting back into it a little as something to do to relax after work. These pics were taken tonight and represent the painting and weathering that I did on this back in 2008.

From what I remember, this is Pollyscale acrylic slate grey under-coat with a black prespray. I then lightened panels with a dust colour. A succession of oil washes in burnt umber and black followed. I used James Tainton's rust method on the muffler and then used MIG pigments for some final work. Chipping was done by hand and some detailing was added with graphite dust, pencil, and oil paint (rust, precision pigment application, etc). The mud at the front of the left side is incomplete; I'm planning on extending that all the way back and on the other side as well. It's comprised of future floor polish as a binder for more MIG pigment.

Sorry for the grain in the photos; I'll have to adjust settings next time.































Enjoy!
