Missed you on Saturday Gaz. Hope you picked up some bargains.




How did you miss me, I was the largest one there??

Looked for ya, cuz I heard you were there, but never saw ya.

Didn't buy any armor, but did get a couple of OOP Wingnut Wings kits.

Gaz



I kept an eye out for you, but a lot of people there. Remember I'm only 5.5 foot tall, so everyone is taller than me and it is like looking through a forest.

No armour? Okay, I just won't tell anyone from the club

Glad you picked up something that interested you. A lot of older kits for sale, as usual, but I picked up some more recent ones at bargain prices.

Catch you next Saturday



I have plenty of armor... just not plenty of time.

See ya then.

Nate, In the future, and if you’re so inclined, Dragon’s (6723) ‘Rommel and Staff, North Africa 1942’ (4 figures) would be an excellent addition to your beauty of a build.

Cheers!🍺

Thanks guys, but the camera phone does a nice job of hiding the silvering decals. I used Tamiya masking tape. It is a great kit. At least one of these captured vehicles made it to Tunisia. If Gary does a sequel, that would be another opportunity to build it.

Rommel's Afrika Korp captured and used three. Two were named Max and Moritz. Over on PMMS Terry Ashley reviewed a decals sheet for both, with some additional info

https://www.perthmilitarymodelling.com/reviews/vehicles/passionmodels/pm_p35d-003.html

I posted some colour pics of Max earlier in the thread

Nathan. Great paint job. What kind of masking tape did you use?

Zon - Nice work on the straps, definitely making a note of that technique.

I managed to add most of the decals and some exterior details to the ACV.

Worked up some of the stowage on the SAS Jeep with some strapping. For the straps I made a sandwich of two layers of Tamiya tape with aluminum foil in between. In the future, I think I will use a more adhesive tape, as I had some de-lamination as I bent it around.

Happy Modeling!
Zon



This is starting to come along really nicely! I look forward to the finished result.

Peter and Gaz: thanks for the encouragement, although I must confess the idea for the straps was not original to me, but I can’t remember where I heard it.

Robin: good idea for the mold. Thanks.

Happy Modeling,
Zon

I would suggest making a "mold" to shape/build the straps around.
Better adhesive could eliminate the delamination problems but could cause buckling instead. Glue some styrene together to get the approximate width, thickness and corner radius of those jerrycans and build up the straps around this profile.

Looking good Zon. Interesting idea for the straps, sandwiching foil in them. I might have to steal that idea.

Peter: The weathering looks spot on.

Rory: The 222 and Matilda both look great. I think you are selling yourself short on the figures. They look good to me.

Kelley: Clean build! I've never been too much into early Allied armor, but this campaign has me rethinking this.

At this point I had only intended to paint the shadow coat under the dashboard so I could put more of it together, but got carried away. Will probably have to do more work for the rest of the assembly, but it was nice to get back on the airbrush. I used Tamiya XF-69 NATO Black, although it looks a little blue in my junk lighting.





Happy Modeling!

I am thinking of modifying them to a more correct look.
