Thanks for your help, James! (is there a beer-smiley or somewhat like that?)

...and the benefits of macro pictures - I must correct the shovel-holder, there's a huge gap between the fender and the etched part...

Four months later...

... well, nobody said I was a quick builder this little tank finally got her first coat of Tamiya primer and after drying the panzer grey (Vallejo Model Air - Black grey) lightened with white.




Later lightly filtered with some humbrol azure blue and coated with gloss. First time in my life I tried dry transfers (Mig) for the turret numbers and used the kits own decals marking the division and the Balkenkreuz.





I plan some wash with burnt umber oil, then a matt varnish and starting the weathering. As I plan a quite new tank in early summer of 1941 just "camping" before the start of Barbarossa I will concentrate on dust mainly and no significant chips, rust, wear...

More to follow (maybe in September with my pace...).

cheers,
Zsolt

Finally... finished

Hello everyone,
finished... or at least 99.6% ready - and I'm quite pleased with the results. It was a very nice little kit, and a fun-build despite my constant lack of free time. Since the last post
- I washed it with burnt umber oils,
- pre-dusted with gunze earth-tones,
- re-painted with grey as the earth-tones were seriously overdone (bad lighting conditions at home and lack of experience )
- used earth-tone oils and enamels
- used migments, various colors - that was a fun to experiment
- broke the magic-track - it was first try from me of painting the track separately, everything went well but when I tried to glue the track-ends together on the ready model, it broke twice. I was close to cry (fun build, ehh?) and to throw the tracks to the bin, buy some friuls and live happily forever. Finally I spared the price of the friul to next projects - and decided to hide the errors of the right side track with some vegetation on a diorama in the very distant future...
- the MG and the 2cm gun was painted with Model Master polishable gunmetal color, a bit too shiny for a dusty vehicle, isn't it?
So thanks for your attention
cheers,
Zsolt

oops, and of course the pics:

boxing day

Just getting inspired on Master James' work here I tried to do an ammo-box looking like the original in 1:35. Used some balsawood found in the pile of the "this would be good for something sometimes" things around my desk. The weathering was done with grey, blue and brown gouache paint (is this the right word for the paint used in school, and water soluble but not acrilic?) with lot of water... I'm pretty satisfied (though no straps on it) and ordered Archer's box stencils to enhance the look further. Thanks James
