The Panther ausf. A is almost finished so I will do something else. I have decided to start the two busts I have showed before. The present an unknown Russian soldier and a famous Russian pilot named Ivan Kozhedub.
I bought this 2 busts together with a third in a set from Mitches Militairy Models.
after a long period I will start something new. I had a new workroom in our new house but that one was not what I would want it to be so we decided to prepare the other room and now I’m more happy with the space. There is still more to do but my workbench is ready,
As I do like to participate in a GB because it motivates me more to finish a project I will start with participating in another GB.
But what to build, it’s has to subject that fits in Operation Citadel also known as the battle of Kursk.
I have two subjects left, the busts or the tank. But I’m not sure what I will do as I do have to finish the plane and have still some other projects on the go.
But after a new search into my stash I found another kit and I think I will start this one first.
still busy with finishing the ongoing projects but also thinking about what I’m going to do next. I have never build a serious plane and was thinking why not try one to build.
I don’t have plans to build more then one so I decided to go all the way with this kit.
Also in GB they celebrate 100 years RAF so I bought one of the iconic planes that the RAF used in WOII to fight against the German aggressor.
The kit is from Eduard. I never build a kit from this manufacture only aftermarket parts for other kits.
Inside the box are three sprues and one clear sprue. Also a PE sheet and a decal sheet for the stencils and a bigger one for 6 different schemes. I have to decided which one I will build.
Last Saturday I visit the scale model show in Lingen (Germany). I bought there some kits and also two figures. One of the figures I bought is a caricature of Winston Churchill and his bulldog.
I always I started cleaning the parts and put them together. After I had cleaned the parts with 75% alcohol I started with a primer coat., This time I used Chaos Black from Citadel. When this coat had dried I did I drybrush with Pallid Wych Flesh (Citadel).
It looks a bit crazy but when the paint is on the figure you can’t see anything of this anymore 😉
Years ago I have build the same half track from Tamiya. This kits build fast and are a bit simple, but with some paint and extra you can make a descend model.
When Trumpeter came out with there sdkfz 7’s I tried to build them but there were a lot of fitting issues and the kit is still in an unfinished state. When I was cleaning out my stash I found this kit from Dragon and thought to give it a try.
I started yesterday evening with the build of this kit at a club meeting. Did not make many pictures as the kits builds nice and fast so I forgot to make pictures.
The kit start with the chassis, a very complex chassis.
I have just received this bust and will paint this for a group build on Flory Models.
It’s a resin kit with some very small parts. Also there are some nasty seam lines and some difficult casting blocks that have to be removed before I can glue the parts together. But overall the quality of the parts do look good. Nice details.
I have finished this project, was really nice to paint.
Kliederkwast & Kronkels
K&K is mijn nieuwe weblog. Jarenlang heb ik een weblog gehad waar ik spinsels en kronkels op schreef. Dat begon te vervelen waardoor geleidelijk mijn oude blog verouderde en een zieltogend bestaan leidde. Onlangs heb ik mijn oude blog weggegooid. Aangezien ik een poosje geleden op Facebook mijn werk liet zien en ik dat niet helemaal prettig kon samenvoegen heb ik een nieuwe blog gestart met daarop mijn hobbymatige uitingen.
Behalve het tonen van mijn werk zal ik af en toe een kronkel schrijven.
