Hey everybody,
this is my latest work.
Tasca´s late Luchs, built pretty much ootb, just with some spare PE.
The tracks will be changed to friul after the diobase is finished.
Painted with Tamiya Acryl, weathering with Oils and some Pastellchalks, Details and figure (first time entirely) painted with Vallejo Acrylics.



















Here you see that i need to do some touch-ups on the figures neck. I drilled out to much plastic while i was fitting another Hornet head and need to apply the eagle to the cap.
I´m pretty pleased for the first try in painting a fig entirely with Vallejo.

All comments, good or bad, more than welcome .

Markus

Hey nice job on the Luchs. I alway liked this little light tank, eventhough it was obsolete when it was developed. I built the ICM kit, but wasn't too impressed with certain things. The Tasca version seems to be a lot better kit. I think I'll pick it up. The figure is very good. Just add the finishing touches to it and it will throw your tank over the top. I believe the Fruil tracks will give the tank the look you're looking for. The ICM kit came with individual links. Nice job

Hey mates,
thanks a lot for the kind words, i appreciate it!!

James,
as this kit was nothing special (not much aftermarket-stuff aso), i didn´t take any pics during the build or painting.
For my next kit i will make some more sbs pics, i promise! .

Stuke,
thanks a lot, i´m glad you guys like my fig, especially as it was my first serious try in painting with acrylics (i´m more the oil-guy ).

Manuel,
pick this kit up, you will love it!
It´s worlds better than the ICM or Techmod Luchs.
I have them both here too, but never really wanted to give them a try, especially after getting the Tasca-kit. :lol:

Here are some pics of the started vignette.
Still a lot of work is left, but it should give you an idea on what it will look like
