Looks great on the base Al.

I saw the modelling clay you used in a WHSmith somewhere last week.

An ace of a base and a fine work.  It's one of the stranger tanks with unusual, unwieldy shells.  I like the bits of rust.

Thanks both.

The Tiger I is now finished, although I got too much snow on it as I was aiming for 'frost'. (too much hair spray as the adhesive)









In the end I decided not to 'winterize' the Nashorn so it too is finished:

Great builds Al, I like the winter theme, it looks fitting. All round some great battle weathering achieved on all three builds.

Thanks both.

Trivia: The Sturmtiger wasn't actually a tank (No to rotating turret) rather it was an assault gun equipped with a 380mm rocket launcher/mortar!!

I don't have the bandwidth at the mo to post continuous build updates so the only way to do this is to post in this finished section ... probably against the "accepted rules" so apologies.













At least i'm up and at it again!!! albeit with only glue and acrylics

Luv the little "Stuart." It starred in the "Sgt.Rock" comics long ago. Thanx all for good work and sharing techniques/fotos!

I am calling this one finished. It was interesting putting together the magic tracks. Also, my first experience using the hairspray method for winter weathering, My goal was to depict the tank on the move under a light snowfall.
Many thanks to Al, for his advice and suggestions along the way.

Glad to have been of some help too!!

im calling this finished....for the time being

ive purposely not muddied it up cos ive had an idea for a dio a few months down the line and when it comes to it all the vehicles can get muddied up at the same time

nice enough kit but the scurzen was a bugger so ended up making the left hand side a bit battle damaged
