Hi there.
After the Staghound scene ends:

I decided to perform scene with the M7 Priest in the lead role.



At the moment I am at this stage:

A small step forward to bring the vehicle to the original from photo (with a little own initiative )




Still a lot to do...

I am not worthy...... Man Rafal your work is outstanding! I think I like this better than the Staghound. Very clean build with excellent paintwork and weathering(you re good with a camera too!)

Rafal, this is yet another masterwork- the details and painting you have on the Priest are jaw-dropping.

Many thanks.

As you can see the model are almost complete, what left to do ?
glue tracks to the suspension and ground the whole model.
M7 Priest - Italy 44/45
7 Horse Artillery Regiment - Polish forces in the West

















Next will be groundwork.

Lookin good man. Awesome painting and weathering skill. Did you say you were going to glue the treads down? The tread where it goes around the idler doesn't look right so I must assume that someone with your proven talent just hasn't gotten around to it?

Thanks again.

Tracks are only applied without glue ***. - As I wrote before - what was to be done
Tracks to all wheels then Priest to ground ^^
I did this on purpose.
Later I'll be able to put them to shape of ground.
Basically, all this is done, just waiting until everything dries
So soon new photos.

Cheers

I love the tonal variations on the M7, it really brings it to life beautifully and the weathering adds even more visual interest. I think the figure you have really suits the vehicle too.

Thanks again guys.

Today is the 74 anniversary of World War II start.
The German Nazis invaded Poland in 1939.
Honor and Glory to the heroes!

Now about work.

Model finished, I made the base from a piece of birch, earth and dried plants.

For the record, the only existing photo of this vehicle

OMG!!

You are a master modeller Sir! Terrain is fantastic as well!!!

Only I'm curious....didn't the polish forces wear british uniforms??? I just wonder! The one on the Priest does not look khaki at all!

Congratulations anyway!!!

Thanks.
Khaki ? Are you serious? pls...repeat again ?for real? repeat, khaki?
and you know it's really only a convention and have different shades? know that the priest does not have the OD, and it is very clear? Is it just my imagination missing? Khaki in italy .... type in google - it's probably the easiest way out, you'll understand
