Tamiya Panzer II

Postby gibbs » Fri Oct 12, 2012 1:11 pm

With the King Tiger finished I've decided on this for my next project, although I am looking to do this kit serving on the Polish front rather than North Africa

Thats a nice build as well, lots of figs I see to, should be a good one to play with on your build, smaller and quite different than the other cats you have posted about so far. Any clue on camo, maybe a winter type pattern might look good??

Cheers, onto your next model build and I'm looking forward to it!!

It's going to take alot of sanding to prep the hull to receive it all but I'm hoping it'll be worth it in the end either that or I've finally lost the plot

A slight change of plan as the plastic card arrived this morning so I made a start on the interior instead

I realized that I have been a bit lax in updating here and for that I apologize since my last update the
wheels have been fitted and painted and the interior has been fitted and painted
Image
Image
despite all that work you only see a tiny bit of it all
Image
While it is by no means accurate due to there being a crew position missing although I may add it in but that depends on how the turret sits I'm hoping that it gives a general idea of what is meant to be there

I've been working on the figure and have cleaned up the legs and fixed the shoulder so these pictures should give an idea of the final look and positioning I just need to finish gathering some references to make sure I get the details right.
