Mark C.,
Congratulations on your KV-1. It looks excellent! I really like your color modulation and subtle weathering!

Heading out on business for two weeks so had to get this wrapped up. I envisioned these guys hanging around the city in the days leading up to the battle, making a show of force to boost the morale of the citizens. Dirty, but not battle-weary yet.

Mark. Great work on the Panzer IV. Very nicely done.

Martin, the etch will really give that old kit a boost. Looks much better.

Matthew, I would say your second pic is whitewash over grey paint.




Peter, Thank you.

Rodolfo,

Thanks for your kind comments Gary!. Really I don´t have experience in figures, I am learning too and I hope to make a good work with them.

Before to paint, I applied Surface Primer Spray of Tamiya.

Thanks for your welcome and words Gary!..


I begun to drill one arm for adding the grenade, but I cannot to make a big hole because I can destroyed the piece, in order of avoid this, I divided the grenade in two parte and them were placed into the holes.



The following step is work and checking the figures (except the head) for verifiy a correct adjust; I added Putty of Tamiya mixed with Lacquer thinner for easy manipulation. I added another grenade in arm of another soldier with the same previous method



Now I am working more Putty in necessary zone of arms.

Regards!

Matthew,
Welcome aboard! Seems you and I are working on different boxings of the same kit. Wish you hadn't shown me the errors... ignorance is bliss, I always say. And I don't have any spare parts.

Hello again!

I’ve found a few snags with the 15-cm Sturm-Infanteriegeschutz 33. CyberHobby (Dragon) provide decals for “G7”as per the box art. See below…



The snags are “G7” had the earlier style idler wheel, and the earlier style headlight. See below…



Fortunately, I have the earlier style idler wheels knocking around in the spares box, and a headlight that should do the job.

Happy day again!

Cheers

Matthew

PS now is that panzergrau or dunkelgelb in the second picture?

Hello,

Great looking builds here! I especially like the panzer iv F1!

I’ve cleared some space on the bench, so will start this beauty!
