Tamiya Mid Production Sturm/Brummbar

OK...I know this is an old kit with lottsa inaccurate stuff. But I'm gonna try and correct as much as I can with the limmited experience that I have.
This will be my first completed model in 25 years after getting back into again 3 months ago. It will not compare to the work that you guys do but I gotta start somewhere and you guys are an inspiration.
Currently applying zimmerit...I have alot of stuff to correct and work slowly so it might take some time. Thanks
BTW...I removed my pics from Panzergenadiers "Zimmerit with putty" post because I felt like I was hi-jacking his thread.

Looks good. Are you using one of those zimmerit making tools? How do you keep your zimm so evenly spaced?

Hi Joseph,

Nice to finally see some of your work here at the vBench!

Your work on the Zimmerit is great! It is so neat that it will make the model look wonderful despite its age.

Old kits are really great to build as one gets to correct small details that help you become a better modeler. In my opinion some of the fun in building kits is gone now. With today’s super kits and aftermarket kits containing every possible option one can get bored pretty quick, so congratulations Joseph on tackling an old kit.

I first mask off the line with masking tape. Then I mix Squadron Green Putty with denatured alcohol...then apply the putty with a scrap piece of PE, remove the tape and roll the line with a little veegetable oil applied to and using the Squadron putty tube cap.

Flak, IIRC he's using Squadron Green Stuff.

Joseph, very nice work. You and I are in much the same boat — I haven't built a tank in a decade or more. I got back into them again in September, and so far am having a tough time getting anything completed. Despite my best intentions, I keep finding all this cool aftermarket stuff I just have to have, and the postman is very slow . . . heavy sigh.

Anyway, have fun with it. Looks good so far.

Cheers
Scott Fraser
