  1. In regard to German tanks of WWII, we use cm instead of mm, as the Wehrmacht did in their manuals. (Check Tiger and Panther manuals for reference). Even today that is common. Therefore, he was right. The only thing to fix here would be the German spelling, as we use commas to differentiate numbers. 8,8 cm, 7,5 cm, 12,8 cm and so on. Greetings from Germany
  2. On how to use pigments, the advice I can give you is to check PLASMO on Youtube. He uses pigments on models quite often, and his explanations are simple and still enable you to get some great effects on your models. I don't know how much stuff you want to weather, but as an alternative for trying out some stuff I can recommend Tamiya Weathering Master Pigments. Those are small packages including three small pigment pools in every set. it will take you quite some time to empty them, and they are absolutely gorgeous when trying out how to use pigments. I used them for both Tabletop and Display models, and from my point of view they work perfectly.
  3. Oh .... really? Well - in that case I will do the SLOPPIEST paint job I ever did.
  4. An uneventful evening. It's raining but it's hot, so I am sweating like hell. There are some other folks who evade this kind of suffering, enjoying a relaxing bubble bath ... ... just to dry afterwards watching yoga ASMR videos by Creative_Calm. While I cleaned my room, I found some old ship models as well as some really old tank models. So I thought: Why not? I haven't finished those models when I was a kid, so - why not now? All my other stuff is packed away waiting to be moved to South Germany and some glue and some sanding sticks are what I currently can afford to have on my table. So - let's do it and see where I will end. Oh - yeah - choosing the StuG IV as the first one to finish is all @buglips*the*goblin fault.
  5. And some progress: Panzer III body is almost finished. The vehicle was painted with a bunch of other vehicles. For painting please switch over to my Manufactorum-Speed-Build-Thread ->here<-
  6. Hello everyone. Due to some developments I have to pack away my stuff for the time being and move to southern Germany - which is ... yay. That prompted me to press forward on some vehicles I am working on at the moment. I want to finish all the airbrush work before moving, so I don't need to remember where I stopped. Started off with some grey primer to make the upcoming color pop a bit more (and because I totally forget to get black base coat in time). After that I continued using red oxide primer for the vehicles: Then German tank camo base - yellow sand color ... Highlights were sprayed on using my yellow sand color and white. After that I did some minor work on decals, priming some tools and other stuff. Where possible, I continued working on weathering effects. And here we are: Panzer 38d: Panzer I f Sprocket, idler wheels and running gear For Panzer III please refer ->here<-
  7. Well, you need to dry them - there's no doubt about it. I normally put them in a closed box, close it and put them on the heater for some time. I've never used the oven, though.
  8. And that's where we are at the moment. Tomorrow we have to do the last few details and then, the terrain is finished! Yay.
  9. And the Panther is finished. We're still missing dirt and pigments - but those will be applied once the diorama is being finished. Until then ... let's enjoy the wonderful feeling of being done .... for the time being.
  10. And some more progress ... we are about 80% finished. But ... what the heck? There's a gap between the front armor plates. That's really ... ugh. Hm. Why didn't I see that beforehand? I hope I can fix that or hide it. I have got think about it for a while ...
  11. Started this morning with this: Ended in the evening with this. Making progress ...
  12. Time to paint our Panther ... First of - rust protection undercoat, as it was applied in the factory before any other colour was applied. Then the base colour ... Fired some highlights on the vehicle. Hope they will pop later on. Next: Camouflage. I'll try to do it in a freehand pattern. I hope it works out ... lol.
  13. After the plaster had some time to dry, I pre-scraped the tracks into the ground. The next layer will get the more detailed shape of the tank tracks. I hope that will work. Also, the trees are drying. The plaster didn't adhere to all branches and the overall look is more or less creepy, but I think after I painted them and glued everything into place, it will look nicely. I am confident the scenery will be awesome in the end!
