Matthew,

Looks like a nice clean build, should be good to go when that barrel arrives.

Rodolfo, those figures look awesome. Great painting skills!

I have a bit of progress to report on the 15cm strum-infanteriegeschutz… Nearly all subassemblies are complete: hull and suspension, wheels and tracks, the gun cradle and casemate. I’m now waiting for a turned metal barrel to arrive in the post so that I can press on. here are a few progress photos:







cheers

Matthew

Excellent work Mark!, the modulation and weathering looks great!.

More updates of my figures:


Airburshed with Vallejo paintings Model Air, 4 capes, (lights and shadows), more lights with dry brush using Humbrol and washes with Vallejo; when I finished the heads, I will add another small weathering with airbrush using Vallejo Model Air.





Regards!

Heading out on business for two weeks so had to get this wrapped up. I envisioned these guys hanging around the city in the days leading up to the battle, making a show of force to boost the morale of the citizens. Dirty, but not battle-weary yet.

Mark. Great work on the Panzer IV. Very nicely done.

Martin, the etch will really give that old kit a boost. Looks much better.

Matthew, I would say your second pic is whitewash over grey paint.




Peter, Thank you.

Rodolfo,
I'm looking to learn a lot about figurines. So I;m paying close attention.

Thanks for your kind comments Gary!. Really I don´t have experience in figures, I am learning too and I hope to make a good work with them.

Before to paint, I applied Surface Primer Spray of Tamiya.

Thanks for your welcome and words Gary!..


I begun to drill one arm for adding the grenade, but I cannot to make a big hole because I can destroyed the piece, in order of avoid this, I divided the grenade in two parte and them were placed into the holes.



The following step is work and checking the figures (except the head) for verifiy a correct adjust; I added Putty of Tamiya mixed with Lacquer thinner for easy manipulation. I added another grenade in arm of another soldier with the same previous method



Now I am working more Putty in necessary zone of arms.

Regards!
Rodolfo
