Thanks for your kind comments Matthew and Bill. Hope to have the tools painted shortly and add a flat coat then some light pigments. Matthew, love the decal choice..yours looks like it came from a period photo album.

Cheers!

Chuck, love the F2. I like the open bin too. Load the inside with a case of Russian vodka.
Matthew, that a cool paint scheme and markings.

Good luck everyone on finishing.

Almost there… Nice to see your panzer iv F2 with colour, Chuck.

My F2 also has colour and decals. I used the Echelon decal set. the tank is the 1st gun tank of 2nd platoon of the 1st panzer regiment of Grossdeutschland division.

Here are some pics…





Still need to work on the wooden tool handles, perhaps a little chipping, and dump a load of pigments on it.

Almost there… I think we can get across the finish line!

Cheers

Chuck,

Very nice looking Panzer IV, a lot of detail. Yours is the first one I seen with the lid to the storage bin opened. Now I know what color the inside is supposed to look like.

Again... Sweet looking Panzer.

Well, I'm on the home stretch here with this Panzer IV F2. Coming along nicely, despite a few bumps along the way.






Cheers everyone! Hope everyone can finish up this campaign in time.

Well done, Panzerman. I think this turned out better than what you might have thought. Well, you sure made the Italeri company proud with this one. Thanks for posting.

Cheers!

Panzerman1,

Amazing work. Really liking the detail you added and the color tones on the figures really make them pop. Nice finish.

@ Panzerman; awesome F1! Those figures look ace and the extra stowage make it. Great job!

I spent a happy evening modelling last night. I added an extra track link to both sides of the panzer iv ausf d. Amazing how much track sag you get from adding just one link. I tinkered with a few other bits and bobs too; added the aerial, adjusted the headlights, etc.

I also spent a happy 40 minutes trimming, scraping and sanding the incorrect Tamiya drive sprockets for the Ausf D to make them the right width for the 36 cm (38 cm?) track. All a bit pointless really as the proverbial horse has already bolted the barn door… Anyway, when I get the next Tamiya D I’ll be all set.

Here are a couple of pics.





I might get primer on this one by the campaign close, but will definitely, really, surely, definitely finish the Italeri panzer iv ausf F2, for sure… I think… Possibly…

Cheers

FINAL REVEAL: Italeri Panzer IV (F1, F2, & G). 1/35th scale. I made the F1 version.

I had to replace the kit's tracks due to breakage. A friend (Sivert) gave me some replacements. Thanks Buddy!

I am really pleased with how the MiniArt figures turned out. I added a few items around the turret for a more realistic appearance.

As per reference photos, I added some T-34 tracks to the glacis as extra armor protection.

The stowage rack on the engine deck was made out of styrene strip. The stowage items I got from the spares box. The tow cable is a resin and braided wire item.

I'm happy with the overall weathering. Several light filter washes of brown sand and earth unified the whole paint scheme.

Thank you to Armorama and the administrator for hosting this fun campaign. I had a wonderful time participating, and following everyone's builds. See you all on the next one! Bill

We are down to the crunch time for the campaign. The deadline is looming near. Good luck everyone with their projects.

Ongoing Builds:
Randall N. -Good start on your T-34. I like the added details.
Tom M. -Good choice for a kit. I like those Tamiya 1/48th kits.
Matthew H. -Another stellar build shaping up. The details "Pop".
Chuck W. -Making good progress on your Pz. IV F2.
Darius -I like the 3 tone camouflage on your Pz. IV.
Lap M. -Good luck getting her done by the deadline.
Shell B. -Your Hummel is progressing nicely.
Completed:
Tom M. -Great finish to your T-34/76. Love the lil red star on the reciprocator's armor jacket.

Tick tock, we are all on the countdown clock. Good luck everyone.
Happy modeling. Bill

Under the rules for this contest is states no what-ifs. Can I make sure this means no German captured schemes before I commit to building one. I have a world of tanks sherman that comes with zero decals in reality.



I think under the rules it needs to be in the service of a country it was meant for. Captured vehicles aren't really "workhorses" of the country that captured them.

Some really nice looking models here. I am still hopeful I can get paint on my T-34, but nature has been against me this month. It's my fault for procrastinating.

The hot days of summer have kept me out of my painting and casting room. That area of my house is not cooled and I can't take the heat. Those days were mixed with rain storms that sent the humidity way up.

I decided to rebuild the paint booth in another room where I can add a window air conditioner, and a vent fan, but it turned out to be a never ending project! The new room was a junk storage room and to move all the junk from the room I had to build a new storage area and that involved... You get the idea! It might be a blessing because it got me to start throwing out some junk I don't really need.

Anyhow I think I might have the disasters under control in a week to ten days, and then slap some paint on the model just to get it "done".
