  1. that was mentioned elsewhere BUT I have seen photos of the front really heavily loaded like this... maybe not quite as bad but close enough...
  2. Italeri 1/35 M7 Priest... some extras from Value Gear, Redog and home made stowage along with some scratch building...
  3. finished, finito, done.... really enjoyed this build, learning all about stowage, some extra detail and scratch building....
  4. very nice.... I am about to start to build this for the Canadian GB (so going Canadian markings) - not sure whether to get the Black Dog resin set (or just replace the wheels???) - what colour for a Canadian vehicle?
  5. matt varnish on, stowage on, tracks and rubber painted.... hope to get this finished in time (at least finished enough for me... not envisaging a heavily weathered vehicle this time)
  6. stunning (as always).... looking forward to more of this
  7. At the very least hope I can get the matt varnish on and the build complete, not sure I will get it fully weathered but will see
  8. earth and mud tones added (Ammo range) plus tried to add in a bit more of the green (wish I had put more grass on, maybe if I build a second diorama). Meed to paint some of the stones then start on weathering the Wespe and painting the stowage elements

  10. Base progressing... green was mix of NATO green and light green kahki (best I had) and earth base was equal parts desert sand, khaki and then a touch of dunkelgelb. Next stop is the enamel wash earth tones and some detail painting.... Wespe still needs to be weathered but thats how it will look (in hindsight more grass where the oil drums/boxes will go may have been better...

  12. yeah made my own, not sure if I will do it again but have a few small storage pots so there is soil, stones, leaves and now "grass" in 4 of them
  13. not quite as fiddly as MiniArt but do have some small/thin parts... no PE at all... and do do some interesting subjects
  14. These are still VMS shaped... You soak the paper in the product and them apply it how you want .... Fold/tuck as needed
  15. this has moved on... wheels on, 2/3 guns added (painted the wrong one so need to do that), windscreen on... need to do the lights and maybe a little bit of subtle dust but nothing OTT... and then need to do just a little more on the canvas roof....
  16. next few bits and bobs... added wheels (next up tracks and hopefully a "FINISH"
  17. decals on... slightly what-if, taken from various kits
  18. so some success with finely cut hemp string... not great but I am just learning... next stop painting and with a stand in vehicle
  19. hahahaha doh... not built a plane in 10+ years I think... and never one above 1/48 -)
  20. most likey yes... if I paint the whole dio (a la NightShift) then the black primer will cover the frame (and will then mask it while painting the rest of the dio
  21. oohhh thanks all... may try and make some form some garden twine (seen that done) and use the pva method outlined above
  22. Thanks both.... The rust I am not 109% on either, but need to weather the Wespe fully (which is also why the wheels look pristine)... Think I will risk just a small pouch of green (oh we missus) and see.- or maybe make my own, as I said I may not do another but who knows.....
  23. So, as I am trying to fill a gap before starting y next build (Canadian GB) I thought "why not, lets build my first base"... so I yanked out a small photo frame, added card "formers", coated in acryllic binder and then clagged AK Interactive textured mud, some stones & soil from garden... and this is how it looks.... and with Wespe placed in position.... Any tips/tricks/vidoes I could look at (follow NightShift so using him as my workflow).... so next - more stones/soil, some dry grass, some other grass (don't have a full applicator so any options?) I may even add some figures!!!!!
  24. All, I am building my first diorama (well more "small base" for the Tamiya wespe, and need to add some grass, Uncle NighShift uses static grass and applicator but, as this may be the first & last base I build am not wanting to layout that cash, what alternatives are there? I don't envisage the whole base being covered, just some patches here & there - so would grass "tuft sheets" work? Anything else I can try? Also, U. NightShift paints his bases, anyone else (don't mind trying that either).....
