Looking good, Gaz... I am right behind, having some airbrushing time too. I don't use primer so gray base coat is almost finished. Tomorow I have to do some reparations and to paint the rest of the parts.

I like how A coat of primer can make the fixtures of a kit leap out. Nice work, Bogicevic!

And I've been weathering the Chassis. I learned a lot doing the Pz IIIg that I was able to apply to this kit.






Happy building!

Howdy Y'all
I'm calling these two guys finished. I'll try to complete the diorama/vignette later in the Unfished Builds campaign.
I liked Tamiya's 1/48 figures. This is the Rommel and an aide figure from the set.





I'll try to post these photos in the Campaign gallery tomorrow. Thank you for a great campaign!

Now needs markings and some detail painting, light weathering and we should be able to call it done. A bit disappointed with the fit of the sand shields. Wondering if the Tamiya offering is better engineered. Forgot to mention I need to add the radio aerials and some small flags.
