Unfortunately, a couple images here were lost But it should all be....so-so?

I had the camera when I went decided to stop by one of the local hobby shops

Here's an ugly little diorama that I made for AP European History...of course, it's DAK! What else would I do?

The tanks are Tamiya, their classic IV D, and their Semovente....the figs are a mix of DML Fallschirmjaegers and DML DAK guys...the Pz IV D tanker is Alpines DAK tank commander and the Semovente guy is just the Tamiya one from the box...I know it's bad, but I had to do it in about 2 weeks, so be nice! lol








And my very, very, very first project...a King Tiger from DML, with Tamiya rubber band tracks lol

You did that in 2 weeks? Damn I couldn't finish one in 2 weeks!!

Nice little dio...I love DAK stuff AS WELL

You should see my old models, nothing like state of the art or anything, just basic paint and rubber band tracks....

How this hobby has evolved...!

Hi R.C.,

The King Tiger is damn good!! The paint job is excellent! You won't notice too much the vinyl tracks.

Cheers,

Luca

Hi RC,

your builds may be a bit dark but otherwise look nice. I have lost all my previous models Not that there would have been anything to see but still the sentimental value would have been huge :lol:

yeah, I know the colors are a bit darker...I have to say that I honestly had no idea what in the world I was doing...I knew that I needed to do something, but had no idea what to do exactly lol
