Captured Panzer II (Academy 1:35)

Recommended Posts

Here is my attempt at the Academy Panzer II Ausf F “North Africa” completed as a tank captured by US troops in Tunisia. The kit was a delight to build, needed some modifications to better represent the actual tank. These included scratch building a storage locker and jerrycan rack as well as re-positioning the spare wheel. I brush painted with Vallejo paints, and used Mig Ammo Acrylic Wash for weathering. Aiming for a fairly weather beaten look, as that was the appearance in the photos I found of the actual tank. Build thread can be found here:

Thanks for looking!

Great job - as usual. Nice weathering, she looks like she's got some stories to tell. 😎👍

Thanks - and yes indeed!

excellent chipped finish - particularly given that it's brush painted. Very nice

Thanks, really happy with how it came out.
