Items used are

near finished build ,
The problem being ,which insignia should be used ?
I would really appreciate anyone's assistance with the correct shoulder boars/insignia.
From the reference material suggests artillery insignia, or, being 1945 did this fall under the panzerwaffe insignia?
Please advise best suggestions .
Thanks

Hello again,

Here we are now with the base covered and a brief groundwok covering started.
This is the start to the ground layout.
The border of the timber base was stripped back to be restained .
This was the starter.




I've opted for 1 figure at the front to carry the fuel

Here where we are now .Covered with wall filler ,sand and acylic paints and fine grass ,as per normal mix below


The figures are done


Michael

Hi,


Here are some further images on the progress on the Jagd .
Somewhat better to previous posts as I am using a different photo setup.

This is by no means completed yet .
I have just finished glueing the groundwork in place
The painting and weathering is yet to come..
There will be 2 figures on the ground.I've canned 1 of them and will replace out with someone else so I'm going through the collection to work out which 1
This is where we are now .










I hope you like the new images .

Thanks
Michael

whilst waiting for this


I decided to build the Bronco 25 pounder in the interim .To fill in time...waiting...and waiting....
What a challenge eek:


Ok ,so back onto the base We needed to change the colour from an artifical looking groundwork to something with colour.
I use a Tamiya dark green as the base to work to


This is to build depth in detail
Start from a dark colour and build up ,happy days

From here we use various shades of green and flat earth and brown
And have a wine to check the results

sorry , have a wine during painting....

And the result






Thats it ....till 2013....we move on

Happy new year
Michael
