A Horse Of A Different Color.
Color modulated the muscle definition and hair tone. Needs some touch-up and I need to finish airbrushing the white 'socks' on each lower leg. But it's coming along!

Keith, glad to see you're still horsing around, rim shot please Looks sweet Bud. Are you going to go with a contrasting color for the mane and tail? Jeff T.

Here are my finished photos of the Pz 38(t) with figure. Same photos posted in the gallery.









Very impressive builds in this campaign. I enjoyed them all.

@Tom--that is sharp, sharp, sharp! Great job in the finish, tracks, exhaust, figure...everything! I got two questions for ya: what is that pole with the loop on it on the glacis, and what is the coffee travel mug looking thing on the turret sitting next to the crew member?

I did what I usually do: take a paint job I was happy with and say to myself "I can improve on that!", and end up going from 'subtle' to 'overdone.'



The 'socks' on the legs came out better though:


But luckily (and to answer your question Jeff T. about the mane) most of the beast will be covered by armor plate or chain mail:


I plan to use some washes on the tail to give it some color and depth.

Keith,
From the Pz Tracts 18 the coffee travel mug is a periscope. I was unable to find anything on the loop piece, but my guess is a manual steering or aiming guide. It lines up with the right side vision slot.
Thanks for the kind words.
Looking forward to seeing you finished model.
Tom

Some benchtop photos of my Hetzer.







Some of the parts are in such bad shape they have to be scratch built.

Congrats to all!!
Alas, I ran out of time and the giant knight and steed will have to wait for an 'Unfinished Business' campaign, or be finished campaign-less.

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and is looking forward to a joyous New Year!

Not many.
I don't know if they lost interest on their builds..
You're reaching the 100 Finished Campaigns Milestone, any special celebrations ?

100 Finished Campaigns?!? Wholly Crap!!!! I've been an Armorama member for 10+ years and only have 8 ribbons (9 counting the not-yet-awarded Anti-Aircraft Campaign which just finished)

Sal, congrats on that momentous landmark! Looking at your photo gallery I see you've done quantity and QUALITY!! Very nice!

Lessee....how long would it take me to get to 100? I can usually complete about 4 kits a year, and have 9 campaigns done so far, so that leaves 91 left...divided by 4...carry the one...subtract the square root of 42...and I'll reach that point somewhere around the year...2037. 2037?! Yikes! I better get busy...
:)

I'm disappointed with the small number of builds. Don't know what happened. Thanks for the ribbon by the way

I am sure that I am not the 1st person to reach this milestone and I wasn't planning any celebration, as I didn't even realize that I was approaching that magical number
But i do think that they should put something on your header by the number of post a person has as I think that is more of an accomplishment then the number of post Just my .02$
