The hard work is paying off Martin.

I have given up thinking a build is going to be easy ….. it never is for me.

I have the Lion Roar Zundapf with side car and infantry trailer in the stash. That has even more parts than the Tamiya one...

Martin,
That looks great! Motorcycle models are so fragile. I am glad you are persevering.

Matthew,

Looks like a nice clean build, should be good to go when that barrel arrives.

Rodolfo, those figures look awesome. Great painting skills!

I have a bit of progress to report on the 15cm strum-infanteriegeschutz… Nearly all subassemblies are complete: hull and suspension, wheels and tracks, the gun cradle and casemate. I’m now waiting for a turned metal barrel to arrive in the post so that I can press on. here are a few progress photos:







cheers

Excellent work Mark!, the modulation and weathering looks great!.

More updates of my figures:


Airburshed with Vallejo paintings Model Air, 4 capes, (lights and shadows), more lights with dry brush using Humbrol and washes with Vallejo; when I finished the heads, I will add another small weathering with airbrush using Vallejo Model Air.





Regards!

Heading out on business for two weeks so had to get this wrapped up. I envisioned these guys hanging around the city in the days leading up to the battle, making a show of force to boost the morale of the citizens. Dirty, but not battle-weary yet.

Mark. Great work on the Panzer IV. Very nicely done.

Martin, the etch will really give that old kit a boost. Looks much better.

Matthew, I would say your second pic is whitewash over grey paint.




Peter, Thank you.

Rodolfo,
I'm looking to learn a lot about figurines. So I;m paying close attention.

Thanks for your kind comments Gary!. Really I don´t have experience in figures, I am learning too and I hope to make a good work with them.

Before to paint, I applied Surface Primer Spray of Tamiya.
