Stalingrad Germans/Russians and Romanian Project part 2

 Hi guys

Did some more work on these over last couple of days, added chipping, blackened the wheels and barrels, base coated the tracks and added various filters, next up a gloss coat, decals and a pin wash, the CharB1 bis needs some other camo colours added.

Airbrushing some 1/72 kits

 Hi guys 

I had 2 discs replaced and fused in my neck last week, so I have some "light" hobby time on my hands while I recover, I received a new Iwata airbrush for Christmas which I had not had a chance to use, so I have had a day of airbrush work on my Stalingrad, Romanian and French WWII projects. Wow, I didn't think there would be much difference between my old sparmax and the new Iwata airbrushes, but I must say the Iwata is a much better tool.

3D printed 15mm Crimean war Russian Naval guns

 Hi guys

Doing a 15mm Crimean war project for a friend, he needed some Russian Naval guns so printed these out with some gabions, they turned out pretty good for 15mm, a few little printing errors here and there, but nothing I can't fix with green stuff.

Early WWII French 1/72 vehicle test print 2

 Hi guys

Several people asked me on my last post, how much do these cost to print, well I got a 500g bottle of resin, it was $36 Australian, around $27.50 US, and this is what I printed, with enough resin left over for maybe 2 more vehicles, all 1/72, so about $1.71 per vehicle/gun, there is some extra cost in LCD and FEP replacement, it probably comes out to around $1.80-$1.90 per.

Pretty happy with how these turned out, a couple of small errors here and there, but nothing I can't fix with a bit of green stuff, in this test print we have the following

2x Berliet VUDB

2x Citroen traction 11B (re print to work out kinks)

2x Citroen legere (re print to work out kinks)

2x Citroen U23

2x Laffley S45

1x Command Panhard

1x Panhard

4x W15 Variants

1x Peugeot 301

1x 155mm Mk2

1x 75mm Frances
