Hey happy birthday it’s my 65th today (18th) clearly '56 was a very good year. Great job all round especially the camo
@Catsrcool @Dioramartin Hey Happy Birthday to both you guys! I understand, I have 3 young Grandchildren and I love being a Papa. My model studio has a lock on the door, though! Get everything above rugrat range before Monday!
LOL I will be not only putting it out of reach but out of sight.
Thank you and many Happy Returns.
Thank you. I have 4 grandchildren. Three are adults the one that’s coming on Monday is 8 going on 16 LOL.
That is some awesome weathering on the big beast- its coming to life scratch by scratch! It is such a big kit with so many surfaces to weather but I think you have nailed it.
I also had a problem with the Meng resin stowage on my Mk.4M The base for the turret basket was warped so I heated it with a cup of just boiled water but it didn’t budge much for me. This technique usually works well so I was quite annoyed- ended up snapping it in half later on when I was seeing if it would flex at all- totally my fault of course but just be careful with it- the part looks strong but as usual, strong looking resin can snap with pressure in just the right place! I ended up using the plastic turret basket and the resin sides which needed a bit of surgery but worked well enough.
That is looking great Colin. You have finished that to an immaculate level. I really like the running gear as a whole, a great heavily used look with just no time for the crew to worry about maint or cleaning them off.
And although there is lot and extensive wear and tear/chipping etc, I think it gives the E100 a perfect look and it is just the right amount. Very nicely done
Thank you John. Now to try and finish the Panther Ausf. F!
much better than mine but since it’s a speculative design, I don’t mind my jpz E100 problem (even the name is speculative, I see it as another variant of the stug E100 with a different architectural arrangement)
