Probably the easiest snap-together kit I've ever assembled and for under 4 dollars (US) a mini, you cannot beat the price. These 2 stalwart battlewagons are ready to give ole' Erwin a rough time. One is affectionately named "bullpup" and the other "Dunkirk." I will throw in a few other pics just for fun. Not much getting done on the hobby front lately. i actually wanted to show off to the world that I think I've got this German SS Camo thing licked now. Check out the first guy with the "rust" or autumn smock on. I used the guide from the Battlefront painting page for SS Camo and using their color combinations and technique of camo overlap, I think he turned out well. The "plane tree" however did not. That is the second dude who is holding his schmeisser by the magazine in front.
Interestingly though, the dude with the MP40 belongs to the battlefront "open fire" boxed set sprue which I got for free from The War Store...
Expect in the next week:
DAK MG platoon, DAK Anti Aircraft Platoon, Desert Rat Universal Carriers, British Desert Rat Infantry all started.
|Matilda's good side|
|a pair of Matilda Mk IIs.|
|I used the "tin foil" method for applying camo. If anyone would like it, I took pics of each step.|
|All of the colors are mixtures in the SS trooper's smock.|
|Also you gotta love when the paint goes on "chust zo" (old Pennsylvania Dutch term) and outlines the facial expressions like that.|
|No complaints with how he turned out. Figure is Command Decision Waffen SS.|
|Fig is plastic Battlefront from their Open Fire boxed set. This is my pathetic attempt at early German camo.|
|The plastic BF guys are outstanding.|
