Mike: really nice work on the Napoleon.

I’ve made a bit of progress on the 155mm Howitzer.

I black based the gun and mottled it with dark yellow and then olive drab.

Happy Modeling,

Looks good Zon … That mottling is pretty nice and the whole gun looks well detailed and built up well.

Thank you Johnny. It’s a pretty good kit. The instructions miss a couple of bits, but easy enough to figure out.

Very nice Luis.

I could be cheeky and ask if you primed the other side too. :crazy_face:

Looks like your SPG has a bad case of measles! :grin:

Can’t wait to see it once everything is painted and weathered - it’s off to a fine start.

The quality is not really there for this kit. It has a lot of flash so it requires a lot of clean up. The barrel required a lot of sanding to remove the flash


The detail on on some of the parts is very muddy. Notice what the part looks like on the instructions VS what it actually looks like

The vinyl tires are not long enough to completely go around the wheels

Uff!! That looks like a dog of a kit, Stevie! I hope it does not steal your modeling mojo.

Great job on the kit, Luis! That Spanish camo looks interesting. I wonder what the thought behind it is. It seems very ineffective in blurring the outline of the vehicle with so small dots.

I believe these vehicles were used in the Western Sahara region and it was more a case of something applied over the standard green, rather than green dots added to sand:



I think the second pic indicates that it might have worked well in the end…
More pics, and other equipment used in the campaign is here:

Good research, Peter. That makes more sense - it is sand over green, not the other way around.

Indeed would be much more effective than full olive drab in the desert.
