About Vinnie Branigan (Teacher)


Hi Vinnie, Great work on your 234/4, up your usual excellent standards!.... I'm at the painting stage with mine and would like to know if all the 234's had their interiors sprayed in the red-oxide, or if some of them where given the additional coat of panzer yellow? Frank

Frank, thanks. There's been some discussion on that! I think that elfenbein may have been used, others that the dark yellow was used, and some think just red oxide since it was so late. After giving it long thought........I think it may have been just the red oxide or off-white. Both of which are seen in reference pics. Vinnie

Very nice work Vinnie! I like the red oxide interior. Another work of art to ooh and aah over.

Thanks Vinnie, I was hoping you would recommend the off-white, as that was my first choice...., and more importanly, I now have someone to blame if it's proved incorrect! Frank

Thanks Vinne, Very timely as mine was received this morning wrapped in coloured paper from the Grand Children, and it is every thing I have anticipated. My only gripe that you have to buy the extra pieces for the metal gun shield and bits. I wonder if this will happen in other kits that currently appear with it all integrally? Oh........I am overjoyed with the book FAQ of painting Armoured Fighting Vehicles, a really heavy volume filled with techniques and demonstrations by the Master. John

Hey Vinnie: Great build. This kit looks great. Lots of great details and a great finish. Cant wait for your article. One thing puzzles me, Where do you find all the time to make models so quickly? Are you a cyborg? :-)

Wow, Vinnie, this looks great ! Perfect all-round. Cool how you used the Cyber-Hobby update as well. I will be looking forward to your build review. Too bad this one couldnt find its way into an upcoming issue of AFV Modeller. You have really done some incredible work here. I cant wait to get this Sd Kfz 234/4 kit, and the update as well. Cheers !! Alpen
