The set is now done and trying out different things on the diorama. At this point the truck is needed to see how this is all going together.
Might even make a new setting with a repair yard/ammo dump in mind.
This time not all the work is being done on just the model first, its being spread out over the field maintenance equipment as well. It takes some time to get the look I’m after for each part so it looks used and weathered. The truck will be open being worked on like the Panther D. More to come
This table was grey like the vice.. then added oily rag and oil stain – last added vice now that it’s painted
The build is going great just finished the goggles for the commander and driver. I used canopy glue for the lens part as a friend suggested and it turned out good, still building the commander but as you can see the driver is done. Right now the main gun is drying and working on the tracks then putting the rest together. Then the fun starts with weathering….. more to come
This tank was not in my collection so it was next on the list. Right now I’m working on the crew and markings then weathering (more). Also just picked up a German maintenance crew and tools to add to one of my dioramas .. I will remove the Sturmtiger and add another cargo truck with a 20mm in the bed, then add the tools.
Now this is done it’s time to pick the next (a Sherman or Elefant) or a Churchill….. Might be the German Elefant.. all the paints are out already
