Coming in out of the Cold

I really enjoyed this entire project. Each component individually is quite recommended. The Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.H w/Schurzen from Dragon Models is great little kit that was easy to work, with plenty of details. There are the usual setbacks in this scale from this manufacturer but I feel it was not too bad a kit to have a go at. The Dutch Farm Stable from Reality In Scale was another fun piece to work with. I feel I enjoyed this more because it was out of the box, ready to go. The cast, albeit not perfect, was detailed enough to help make the scene I was looking for and was easy and fun to paint. Finally, I really like the Precision Ice and Snow system. The process was simple and the application and instructions were easy to follow. I feel the results were excellent, even at the hands of this snow-driven novice. I found the product became easier to use the deeper into the project I went. I can see the almost limitless possibilities of the Ice and Snow system and look forward to using it more in the near future.

About Todd Michalak (TRM5150)
FROM: MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES

I am building what I like, when I like and how I like it; having fun doing it. I have been building and finishing models on and off my whole life but the past ten years things really exploded. Just about anything goes when it comes to hitting the bench, but wrecked armor, rusted hulks, ships or ...

AL - Thank you Sir! The Ice and Snow is a really neat product. I think I am just touching the surface on what can be done. "Directional" applications, working with clear resin and silicone to create ice effects...I think I have some playing around to do!! Jeff - Thanks buddy!! LOL...does it show that braille is not my forte'?? Big fun! The Panzer fell together! I am sure there will be more little builds in my future!!
