Hello!
In a few weeks, I got here. The model is good, interesting, but some details are too fragmented. Here are some photos.














I hope things get tired from now on, even though it's a pretty tame job.
Pleasant activities for everyone.

Panel fading/post shading and hairspray chipping done. Maybe went overboard with the chips, but it's good fun!

Conrad, the chipping looks good to me! What color did you use for 4BO and how did you do the panel fading?

Hi Matt, thanks for the comments! 4BO was done using this set from AK:

https://ak-interactive.com/product/russian-green-modulation-set/

Used five of the six colours in the set, gradually building up shading and highlights over a 4BO base. It's actually pretty easy if you go steady and have a decent 0.2mm nozzle and keep the needle clean.

Good looking Panzer IV’s. Mark is that a Tamiya kit? Is that the “sticker” style zim?
The pre shadinglooks very cool on that Sherman. Strong work

Guys these are some fantastic builds. The painting and finishes are excellent.

Great to see some variety in subjects too.

Time to play with the PE wire mesh schurzen. First up, the left side.

Lots of hangers to fold


Attached to the wire mesh


Close-up of the hangars attached to the mesh.



The brackets and pipe are attached to the hull.




Next, need to repeat for the right side.

Mark,

Great PE work you have done there. Those support brackets for the pipe are spot on.

A little more progress, glossed, washed, and decals on. Matte coated in preparation for weathering which I'll do later this week. Apologies for the phone photo.

Conrad, your T34 looks fantastic. No apologies necessary for using your phone. I take all my pics with my phone.

The right side is now complete for mounting the wire mesh schurzen.

There are two configurations for mounting the wire mesh. The areas in the red circles highlight the differences between configuration 1 and 2. The instructions do not give you any guidance on which to use. After looing through my Panzer Tracts 4-3, I discovered the difference between the two configurations.

Configuration 1 - This is used only if the vehicle is fitted with ostketten tracks.

Configuration 2 - This is the standard installation with the normal tracks installed.



Fender brackets installed with part 13 in the folded up position.




Test fitting the middle panel




Test fitting all three panels



Screens test fitted


Now I get to do it all over again for the right side.

Thanks Mark! Really appreciate it.

@Conrad - that is a handsome looking T-34, good job

@d111298pw/Mark - awesome work with the PE on the Panzer IV. I ain't brave enough to tackle that level of detail yet haha.

Thanks for the comment Nigel. The PE is a handful.

Completed the right side. Glad the PE is finished. Was more than a pain in the backside. Not perfect, but good enough for me.







Time to start spraying primer and paint.

Thanks for all the comments guys!

A little more progress, dust and some rain streaking done, and mud and tracks on. Details, a little more refinement on the mud, and grime/oil and rust to do. Still undecided on whether to use the figures, I've built them up and they do look nice, so i may give it a try.

Conrad,

Your T34 looks fantastic. Weathering looks great they way you have done it.
