Panther Italy?

Maybe you remember the Panther Italy i was working on..well i revised it some to this winter killer. Just didn't found the right look for the Italy Panther so i decided to make a whitewashed Panther of it.

I am working on a new base for it and hope to show some progress soon :)

Jumbo Bastogne finished

Got some catching up to do :)

I paint and weathered this Jumbo build by Herold Derksen, the kit is Tasca's superb kit painted and weathered with Tamiya and oils for weathering. The figures are from Alpine painted with acrylics and oils.

KO JagdPanzer Hungary 6, finished

A few projects are ready and new ones are one the table. One of the builds calling done is the KO Jagdpanzer, a fun project to do with a kit not up to the modern standards.

When i come across a nice JP kit i will make a more detailed shorted track version, but for now i am calling this one done :)

Stug G Zimmerit

Like i said in the previous blog i will try to give some more updates on this blog. The current build is this fantastic kit from Dragon. This 'zim' version is highly detailed and is a real jou to build.

 I am making a late war version with ' swing skirts' and concrete armor in a Berlin setting. The skirts are from Voyager and a set of Easy Links from the sockelshop gives this build the proper weight :)

The concrete armor is made from putty and there will be lots of little details made during the build.

Some of the updates

Custom made workable suspension

Test fit of the tracks and upperhull

Well so far this update, thnx for watching and till the next one! Happy modeling folks :)

New Stuff

I know there isn't much news lately on the blog, i will try to improve and give you some more news!

When working on the KO JagdPanzer Hungary project i realised that the Panzer realy pops out in a difrent setting. So i am planning a new dio for it but this will take a while :)

I also started a new build with a sneak peak for ya'll

KO JagdPanzer Hungary 4

The JP still rolling, a basecoat of Tamiya and AK paints is applied and weathering is done with oils. I didn't use any commercial weathering products this time except some pigments. I always like to weather my builds with other products to avoid the same finish over and over.

KO JagdPanzer Hungary 3

I  finished the Magic Tracks, I got them out my sparebox and are perfect for this build. They are easy to work with and give the look i wanted. I already did the short track and finished the right side with a full track. I gave the right side the look of shortage of the right spareparts by giving it different roadwheels.

KO JagdPanzer Hungary 2

I would like to share some pictures of late war verhicles who had a quik repair ( like the JP i am building )so they can move on. It is interesting too see that there wasn't more time then a quik field repair to keep the material moving. Also a shortage of spareparts and withdraw leave the units no other choise then these odd solutions.
