Here's my Trumpeter collection so far. I'm going to have to get a bigger bed, a bigger house, a garage, or as the boss lady says "some other place to put that junk" I have a Jagdtiger coming and for sure want the 1/16 Panther when Trumpeter gets it together so do need more room. I still prefer the King Tiger, it just has something the others don't, the mystique or whatever, too bad it was such an ill-conceived idea. Why not build 20,000 Panthers to try to compete with the 50,000 T-34s running around instead of just 500 KTs and why not use a diesel when gasoline was so short? Here's the mob
This is the old Trumpeter kit in 1/16 scale, turned out not bad. There's a foot of snow and it's -19C right now so it ain't going outside for pics. I got a little snap happy so there's lots of inside pics. Tried my first attempt at some oils, a little burnt umber here and there and hopefully that will get better. It's really subtle and the camera doesn't hardly show anything, of course when you miss something the camera finds it but when you want to show something you can't. That's muck on the fenders and rear plate not burnt umber oils. There are 2 shell racks and about 30 shells inside that turret but of course you can't see anything with it in place and barely anything with it upside down. Another waste, but I know they are there. It's mostly done and here it is.
Here's a start on a new project. Trumpeter's 1/16 scale Soviet SU-100 Tank destroyer. Finished assembling the engine, strange they have you do that first. Looks good but not any better than the engine in the AFV Club 1/35 T-34, just bigger. Not nearly as many parts in this kit as the Trumpeter 1/16 Panzer IV I just finished and the parts look clunkier, less well finished or detailed, just something doesn't look as good as the previous kit. Of course IMHO that Panzer IV was exceptional, especially for 1/16 scale, must be a newer kit than this SU-100. Also to my disappointment this one didn't come with a metal barrel, of course I should have realized that having read several reviews on the kit. It's started so I'll have to see how it turns out, hopefully not as many mistakes as I made with that 1/16 Jagdtiger I ended up binning.
