With the tiger I finished and the bench cleared I'm ready for my next project

It's been a busy two days on this build and so far I have got the turret built, primed and painted

The turret on this is now mated together with the gun so this is nearly ready to go on the hull when it's ready

My strength in German is virtually non existent but if I'm right it should read 'Berlin remains German'

Looking good.

everything has been running full steam ahead this morning the lower hull being primed,the photo etch being added and the base coat sprayed on

while the final coat may not be the smoothest in the world when combined with the half there side skirts I am hoping that it effectively portrays the idea that this vehicle was thrown together rather than being built with the usual attention to detail

Sounds and looks like that should work out just fine for that raw, unfinished and slapped togerther for the final defence of Berlin!!

Cheers, looking forward to more pics.

The camo has now gone on the upper hull
throughout this build I am starting to realize just how versatile a tool it really is, this is the second kit with airbrushed camo and the first where I had some idea of control over line thickness.

Really nice camo, I have never tried an airbrush myself, usually relying on drybrushing. I am looking forward to seeing this come together.
