Model Victoria L6/40

Hi all
this is my first post here... so be kind please

I have started building the fantastic Model Victoria L6/40 in 1/35 scale, the intention is to depict this picture, or some minutes later....



So this is my 1/35 rendering.....



some Polizei going up and down the workbench



and this is the model, at the moment I have ended the interior. I changed the radio set with a Fusprech Gerät f, and I put a Tetra feuerlöscher, I closed the hull and I started the exterior, wich is really easy to build, I hope to get the paint soon on it!

Nice work so far. Interesting change of subject too. How is the fit of this kit?

The scene you have in mind is pretty good, figures and layout seem fine so far.

One consideration though, the bricks in the wall look a little out of scale, too big. You might consider redoing them.

The other thing that made me wonder is, why you would use the chipwood for making the structure? It doesn't take any moisture very well, and it pretty heavy too. Besides, there are alternatives that are also much easier to work with. No critcism, just wondering.

Hi Robert, Marek, thank you very much indeed for your comments.
The building was made of stone, I have several pictures of it and you can clearly see that the material used for the bearing walls was stone, not brick.
As a surveyour I have some good reference and experience in buildings and materials, many building in my region built in the 19th century were made of stone.
I live in Gorizia, the North Eastern part of Italy wich was known in 2nd World War as OZAK (Operations Zone Adriatisches Küstenland) and last year I paid a visit to Kocevje, the small town in southern Slovenia (some 150 Km from my home) involved in the december 1943 events, and I realized that all the old houses are made of stone, as you can clearly see in this picture.



Regarding the material I used for the building, yes, it is a bit heavy, but I don't mind, I don't like to bring my models here and there, so a little weight is good for me, it is just my opinion. I made the texture with plaster, and then fixed it with an arylic spray paint.
The tank is the perfect kit from Model Victoria, it is the first version, used from 1940 to 1943, at the moment I am building the only difference, wich is the exaust cover, I remade the exaust and soon will take some pictures again

Thank you again
Alessandro

Hi Alessandro,

thanks for the explaination. I forget to mention in my previous post that "if is brick". So it's not brick. So forget what I said.

Lay out, like I said, looks promising.

I might give the Victoria model a try, one day.

Robert

Hi all!!
I made a little update, the model is now closed and I started to paint it, I traced the shape of the camouflage with a pencil and then I made it with a fine brush, I hope you like it! Feel free to add you comments!

This is quite exquisite!!

You don’t see one of these around every day, and very well painted to boot!! Great work on the interior, and the cammo pattern looks great also. Talk about patience.

I was wondering, don’t you think that a smaller building may work better. I know you want to recreate the scene in the photo but it appears to me that since the model is small and the building can overshadow it.

Anyways, wonderful work so far. I will be looking forward to some more progress.

That cammo is a killer!
I just have one question; what paint did you use and how did you apply it? There are no marks of the brush visible anywhere!

Hi all! thank you very much for the comments
Dave, yes... actually the buiding is a little bit large, but as I have so much doc. of it I can replicate it as well, maybe I will use a larger base.

Ruben, this is the procedure I used for the paint:
1. airbrushed acrylic base Tamiya brown + black
2. airbrushed acrylic sand
3. brushed Humbrol 91 for the green
4. brushed Humbrol 160 for the red
I used a normal no. 1 brush, my optivisor and a lot of patience (not so much as the hull went painted in a couple of hours).

Though for some nights I had some bad nightmares of "ameba" shaped stains going all around me
Now the model will wait to be completely dryed before the wheatering.

Cheers and thank you again
Alessandro
