  1. Cheers Johny......away from my bench at present and unable to keep up with posts......back soon and hopefully finish this one
  2. That looks great.......looking forward to final painting ......
  3. Thanks chaps.....managed to finish it last night so on my way home and post a status update.......catch u later
  4. Cheers Gents.......really appreciate the positive comments and thumbs up.......took some trial and error......but an interesting painting exercise all the same........ Learnt much in doing this and a speedy method once I got rolling .....I might be able to post pre weathering stage with components painted. Have to say......not a fun AFV to paint overall, camouflage being taken out of the equation. Some very awkward areas to consider. The tools and spare tracks and the way us Brits attached them were hard. Anyway......onward to filters. Thanks again
  5. Morning all.....before my day begins.....I thought I'd pop up a progress report. Just the turret to go. Quite a marathon of a night, after three starts I'm finally happy with the look. A bit of touch up here and there, now seen with fresh eyes. Hopefully get the turret done tonight.....fingers crossed. Plus I have to do some repairs with break off's as I handled the chassis........
  6. I saw one on Ebay going for £13 if its still there.......buy it now if i remember right
  7. Ditto, been doing that a long time...........especially for detailed areas of a small scale.....getting rid of the shine is easy, I use a fibreglass pencil........
  8. I can see that they look really fiddly small to put together......Panzer II tracks were bad enough on my Wespe......good luck with the rest
  9. Looking good Rob........nice to see a size comparison to give a better idea if that I imagine are micro track links.......nice job so far
  10. Armorama's loss.....our gain.....love the build.....certainly conforming my intent to have a my 2020 new project a full interior Panther, probably the Bergepanther. Really enjoyable build blog.......
  11. Hi Soeren......yes its the Mr Metal ... burnt iron. I don’t usually like dry brushing, but I wanted the turret too look pretty recent and have a thin translucent look showing through the steel. Very impressed with this paint. Came in handy all over with tools and improving the night vision equipment with a light dry brush
  12. Thanks John Its been another learning curve one for me.......especially as regards Panthers. I picked up some really nice metal burnishing paint for the inner line of wheels that rubs the guide horns. But, by then I’d attached the running gear as I was following a build blogs where he did the same. So I couldn’t polish them on vehicle....never mind, next time. As regards the paint job.......as I said to Rob......you can study what Mig does or any of the notables.....great guides, but you have to develop your own to make the experience really fun. Im getting there now for a sequence that suits me Thanks again mate
  13. Hi Rob Sorry to hear of the limited time at the bench.......you'll get back to it soon...... I managed some time today, as I finished early my chores and nearly got the main hull and turret finished....status so far... Still got to get the MG in place on the commanders turret, and find my spare lens for the main gun sight.....first one's somewhere on the floor, and being clear....probably never going to see it....., oh, and replace the cable for the night sight that broke off in weathering....... Kept the turret with minimal ware and tear as I'd like it to look pretty new......... Might give this one a break for a bit and switch to another project.......but next task on this one is the running gear, mud, dust and then at the end the new set of primer red with a couple of old side armour. Cheers all......
  14. Nah.......still too big for my space allotted at present . Although I am lobbying for a specific cabinet to at least put them in a dust free zone......fingers crossed......something like this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/vitrines-7-reglables-pour-collectionneurs-vitrine-en-verre/133016530097 I might be able to some small vignettes for each shelf, made to fit for multiple Afv’s Fingers crossed
