I wrapped up my build the other day for the Battle Damage Campaign and finally started on my Jagd E-75. The base for this build is the Trumpeter Flak E-75 with the following Paper Panzer Production parts:

GT-103 Gas Turbine (includes rear hull part and the engine deck)
E-75 Wheel Set
Conversion for using Lowe tracks with E-75
and of course the Jagd E-50/E-75 Eber conversion kit.

I also have the 1946 Panzer Crew and the Panther Mystery brackets that im considering using instead of the fenders.

After all these resin parts are added, there isn't a whole lot of the original kit left aside the suspension and hull tub.

Welcome aboard Richard.

Interesting vehicle Shawn. Looks like some nice crisp castings. Love the green 'zim'

Angel, the pic looks more gold than black, and certainly no ugly duckling.

Tip for cleaning models. Use a bucket to clean in, then strain the water through a funnel with a stocking attached around it. It will trap any loosened parts.

If the shop assistant gives you a funny look when you buy the stockings, tell them you are buying them for your mother or grandmother...

Yovchev, did you not become a goldsmith? ... Now seriously.Is that a primer? And why is it with such a golden tinge? Was not it black? Success in completing the model. I'm waiting for the final product.

Peter-thanks for the advice!
No problem with shop assistant's funny look when buying stockings-from time to time I buy for my (lazy) girls things that are more embarrassing

Gold?Well I could say this kit is worth gold and it will be true in more than one meaning.But what you see is a combination of wrong lighting and lousy photographer(that's me).

Kalin-I wish I could take and post a new picture of the black primed Pavesi, but I can't.It is green now:

Interesting question!
I'll think about it!

Shawn, the E-75 is a very interesting conversion. Following this build with curiosity.
Angel, your artillery tractor is an amazing build. Love those meticulously detailed wheels.
Wishing continued success to all participants.

I'm joining this fun campaign with this obscure resin kit. It's a 1/76th Sturmgeschutz IV with zimmerit. The maker of the kit is Vac-U-Cast.

I'm also using a white metal set from SHQ of Panzer crewmen.

The kit has few resin parts and 2 white metal parts. Luckily the Stug hull has fairly deep apertures in which I'll add the crewmen.
Thanks for viewing. Happy modeling. Bill

Out of curiousity, would Asuka's M4A3E8 Thunderbolt VII be fine for this campaign?
The add-on armor + extra MG mount are all resin (Its hard to find a review that says it, though.), so with the "just a plow = no" it sounds like a no, but the extra armor is pretty visible IMO.

Link to scalemates' page for the kit: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/1021773-asuka-model-35-040-easy-eight

I won't be particularly upset if it's a no, as my time to build is VERY bad right now, and I'm not sure if I want to risk messing up the kit right yet, so I'm not even sure I'd be able to get it done for the campaign, but it's worth asking.

Shalta,Shawn,William, welcome aboard!

Continuing with my Pavesi P4/100 30A build- I decided to add roof framing and canvas to both carts.

Canvas won't be closed as I am not willing to hide interior details, but "lifted" on the sides.Sort of hot-sunny-weather-layout.

Roof framing progress:

I am using the brackets and cutouts for the struts-where I can

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your beloved ones!

Your work continues to amaze Angel. The build just gets better each time.

Merry Christmas and a safe and prosperous New Year to you and your family too.

A very good job, Pro.
The front would not be mobile?
You get to sew a canvas.
Кnowing you, you will not be surprised if you do.

Angel, the artillery tractor build looks magnificent. Love the addition of the canvas framework. I agree, don't hide too much of the interior detailing. Happy modeling. Bill

Vac-U-Cast 1/76 scale Stug. 1st update.

Separated the 2 sections of tracks/road wheels. With extreme caution, I started removing chunks of superfluous resin.

Lots of sanding was needed to whittle down the pour plug resin.

Once thin enough, the excess resin was carefully carved away from the track/road wheel sections. Yeah!!!
Thanks for viewing. Happy modeling. Bill

Hope you didn't breathe in the dust Bill.

A lot of work for a little beast, but it will be worth it , I'm sure

Ive taken advantage of the time off for Christmas to get the Jagd-75 almost ready for the painting booth. Im having a hard time figuring out which camo scheme I will go with - thinking about a three tone scheme of black/dark green/light green.

Certainly is very different Shawn. The grills on the rear are reminiscent of a M48/M60 rear..

Will be interested to see what scheme you decide on.

How game are you?


Or go completely nuts:

Awesome build, Shawn! I love the brutal aggressive look of this jagdpanzer. Pixel camo could look great with those flat sides to work on.

Peter, Yes, I'll be careful of the toxic resin dust.
Shawn, your Jag-75 is shaping up nicely.
Happy modeling. Bill

Update on Vac-U-Cast Stug IV.

The track/road wheel assemblies have been sanded down and are ready for installation.

The remaining resin and white metal pieces are prepped for attachment too.
I'll be adding some missing details to the Stug, like the tank tools. Happy modeling everyone. Best wishes for a great New Year.
Bill
