PlaStix's Brush Painted 2020


Recommended Posts

I have managed to drag a few over the finish line this past year despite life getting in the way at times. Every build was done in GBs.

First one finished was mostly completed in 2019 in the T-55 STGB:

Tamiya's 1/35 Tiran 5

For the Battle of Britain GB I decided to motorise the prop on a Hurricane and include a bit of a vignette:

This project is still in progress but should be completed by the end of the year - the Pz.III is complete but I am going to add a base and a figure or two. I will update the photos once it is finished.

The 1/72 Panther Mk.V, which I had in progress in the Panther STGB, was actually finished yesterday (29/12/20). It's a Zvezda Snap Kit but I have added a few extra bits and bobs from the spares box plus some wire and mud products.

The Zvezda Snap Kit was a fun way to finish the year!

 

A big thank you all the hosts of the GBs I have taken part in and all the fellow modellers who have taken the time to kindly offer advice or support in my threads. Without these interactions I know my builds wouldn't be what they are. Again - thank you. :thumbsup:

 

Comments and suggestions welcome.

 

Kind regards,

 

Stix

 

PS Hopefully I'll see some of you in the Pz.III STGB in February and also in the Less Than A Tenner GB starting in May.

Amazing work Stix. Very inspiring to see how you can make some relatively new/undamaged vehicles look realistic and  used. I really enjoyed your film.

Cheers,

Ernst.

Top class modelling in every aspect!

If I had to pick a favorite, it would be the red Porsche Tractor, closely followed by your Panzer III.

Keep on doin' what you're doin'... and all the best for 2021.

Gorgeous. I’m always amazed by your brushwork, but the SU122 is even more amazing than usual. The Wildcat is a little gem too.

 

Do you have an instructional video out there? I’d love to see it if you do

 

Happy Christmas,

Adrian
