WIP 1/72nd German group nearly done.

Hi guys, almost finished these, just need to paint the tank crews and truck driver, and make the number plates, using the pain in the ass Dragon number plate decals, you get 5 sets of plates with each 251, but have to  add the numbers individually, why couldn't they have added 1 or 2 completed sets? I could do a lot more on these, but I have to draw the line in the sand somewhere, so this will have to do, what do you think?

  1. Wow! These look great. With all the detailing you've done, these models look like they're 1/35th scale. It's hard to believe they're half that size. : )

    Cheers

  12. Nothing like wargamning with display quality models! Awesome job. True talent displayed here. Am I to assume you will use Flames of War as your rule set? This makes me want to start another period! Oh great.

  13. Despite the YUGGGH tracks on the Panther (which is of course the producers fault and not yours) the painting and modelling is outstanding !!!!!

  14. Thanks guys, yeah the Panther tracks are horrible, but didn't want to use running gear from another kit to detail it, would rather just build the other kit in the first place, I have a couple of other Panthers in the stash, so he will have better looking company.
    Could have do more on the weathering, but this is also about getting the kits completed, so leaving out some steps.
