Mark,

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

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.

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

Great to see some variety in subjects too.

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



Bryan, Yes it is the Tamiya kit and the Tamiya zimmerit stickers.

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.

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

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

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.

Hi everyone! I've just joined the campaign, albeit a little late. I will be building the Panzer IV Asuf D. from Dragon. I've been a lurker on Armorama for while, this is my first campaign.

Built and primed. Went together fine, but does feel a little unrefined in places. Tracks are poor, will be replacing with miniart indy link set.




Looking good Conrad. I am interested to see the 2 different kits compare when done.

Basecoat is down and wheels are on. I used Ammo from Mig's Russian Green. I haven't used this brand of paint before and I have to say I am delighted by how good it was. Went down smooth and easy. No clogs, splutters or streaking from the airbrush.

The only thing I am unhappy with is it looks like I got some CA on some of the rear engine grill which blocked up some holes. I will be looking for a needle or something thin enough to unblock these.

All the nice work presented so far is giving me a bad conscience for not having started yet .....
