  1. If you just want to paint them - Vallejo liquid gold (old gold probably). You'll need alcohol and a dedictaed brush to use it, but it's wonderful stuff.

    Apologies if this had been posted before, some great footage.

    Chips. Chips with everything... Started to pin wash the hull after a yellow ochre filter. Been using raw umbest oils as burnt umbest didn't pop for me, and I have no van dyke Brown.

    Redid the schurzen, happier now.

    Paintings underway. Having a blast so far. Happy with the tank, not sure I'm happy with the schurzen camouflage, might end up repainting them.

    Started building up the tracks last night, they will need the Academy drive sprocket - the teeth on the Tamiya ones won't engage the tracks properly because the Tamiya wheel is 1-2 mm wider. The Academy tracks are nice to work with though.

    I guess I'll be finding out how the academy tracks fit 😁
  9. Got one of these in the stash and aching to build it (lit of course). My only quandry is how to cut out the windows on the saucer rim. I know Paragrafix sell a kit that features a template, but I'd rather avoid the expense - anybody any ideas how to go about it? TIA.

    Those are both equally good ideas 👍 The academy box shows poly caps in the wheels it supplies, but no caps came with it (the wheels did). I'll check later, was adding rails and skirts etc last night.

    Thanks Mike. Do they need the academy wheels or are the tamiya ones ok? Assuming this is a tamiya kit of course ☺
  12. Tamiya Stug IV

    Thanks for the tip, might give it a go if I don't like the academy tracks.

    It was the Eduard kit 35483 iirc. Have some academy tracks on the way from eBay for a tenner, hope they're ok to use as the vinyls got twisted out of shape badly in storage. They're currently taped flat to a board to see if it helps.

    First armour that wasnt for war gaming for 25 years. Picked the kit up years ago, I just happen to like stugs 😁 got the photo etch a while ago to. Really enjoying the build so far, never used photo etch before but it was simple enough. Mantlet got some Mr surfacer 500 and a light buff with wet and dry. Not quite sure where I'm going with it as a kit yet, just wanted to build something where I didn't need any more aftermarket that I don't have and i didn't want to light (sci fi kits).

    Thanks Mike. I know not to hold out now
