    You really painted this figure superbly. I like it very much ūüĎć

     

    One part is missing from the tank. I have marked it with a red arrow. It is clearly visible on the boxart. It is missed in the guide but is in the box. I don't remember the part number because I threw my box away. You should be able to find it by following the picture on the box.

    Just had a look through some of the pics I have  - that part looks like some sort of vent or something.

  4. Evening  all, I decided to give my Waterloo dio  figure making a break  and get back on this - as it still needs a little work to finish,   first  I made to Two real Jerry cans / airbrushed them and  placed them at the rear in the frame,  then I made the Three  aerials from some wire I have, and I  finnished off with a couple of flat coats  airbrushed over.

    Still needs its tow ropes placing but I need to make some locking attachments for them as mine broke.

    Afraid not, very little would be seen anyway but thanks for asking.

    I was only involved in the automotive side of the servicing/repair the turret was left to the armourers to work there magic.

    Well further research put us in touch with another descendent who has letters and documents from Henry/Heinrich, and it turns out he was at the farm that day and not on the ridge. 

    Turns out yet another of my wife's relatives was a private with the 71st Highlanders also at Waterloo.

    According to family legend, I had an ancestor on my father's side who was a drummer boy in the Irish Guards.

    Loving the progress.

    Its an honour to build this with your family ties   - thank  you for telling me about  your history   -  keep following there is far more to come.

    I cheated with mine  - I used the inners from the Full interior RFM  M1A2  Abrams,   and used any photo reference I could find  and a bit od scratch  building.

    Lovely work, great painting.  

     

    This reminds me a bit of the large Waterloo model that used to be on display in Dover castle but larger in scale and better in quality.

     

    It would be great to research the names of the soldiers and associate those names with figures in you model.  I think there was a website where you could look up the names - something to do with Waterloo 250..

     

     

    Thank you so much.

    As he was a private, his name didn't make the Roll Call. I was unaware of the severe casualties inflicted on 5KGL by the French Cavalry. Nineteen survivors out of five Hundred is appalling

    Indeed  - when the 5th came down from the ridge to help the 2nd and part 5th in the Farm  - they did not see the French Cuirassiers till it was too late, they could not form a square and had no chance.

    Very nice work.

    A bit off topic, but my wife has been doing some genealogy, and it turns out that one of her ancestors was Henry Oetzman of the 5th KGL at Waterloo. I am sure as a student of the battle you know how fortunate he was to survive.

    Thank you for showing an interest in my build,  I must be honest  that name does not ring a bell for me,   I know a few names from the 3 KGL  regiments that where in LHS  at Waterloo  -  a  Rifleman Friedrich Lindau  of the 2nd KGL  - he wrote an excellent account of the battle for LHS,   I also know of the Major  in the Farm  Major Baring who escaped death  by a hair when his horse was shot.

     

    Here is the link to Private Lindau's  letter.    -    https://projecthougoumont.com/rifleman-friedrich-lindau-2nd-light-battalion-kgl/

    Right, people of Brit Modellers I need your help!!!

     

    How the hell does colour modulation work? I tried to give it a go and all I managed was smearing a mish mash of colours on panels, wiping all the modulation colours off or completely undoing my pin wash.

     

    As a result I binned that idea for now,  but definitely want to try again. I must be missing something, so please, give me knowledge haha.

     

    Cheers,

    Mipps

    Isn't it about putting down a few different coats with an airbrush  starting with a base darker colour then over spraying  with less pressure a slightly lighter shade  finished of with a slight highlight shade?   I might be wrong as I have neve rdone it.
