OK fellas, calling this one done. there are a few things I'll tighten up when I get the chance, but I need to get to my Pacific Campaign build. Clock is ticking down on that one.








fun campaign, will be watching to see other builds move to completion.

Excellent build and finish, Guy! I really like the panel shading and weathering you did.

Good to have you back, K!

Nice idea of a track assembly jig Home-made, I guess. Care to share a few words about it? Thanks!

Are those sinks marks on the inside of each track link or supposed to be there? Looks like an aweful lot of work to fill if those don't belong in-there.

Thanks, Cristian.
The purpose of that job is keeping the track links in line, with adjustment the gaps. It was made from wooden bars of dental tools.
And about the inside pins, maybe it's difficult to see them when applying the weathering stuff. I think so.

All,

A quick update on my Trumpeter Panzer IV Auf F. Munition Shulpper.

All Assembled and painted. Still have to weather her and do a few touch ups.



These vehicles were rarely used so the weathering will be light, most likely a few chips and light dust. After I finish the Karl Morse artillery piece I will mate this vehicle with it on a diorama.

Few more progress pictures until next time.

Mark

All,

I am ready to call my Trumpeter Panzer IV Ausf. F Munitions Shulpper finished. The only weathering I did was a double coat of dust. This vehicle was only used once during the Warsaw Uprising in 1944 so there wasn't any wear to the vehicle. The MIG dust I used just seem to darken the colors and after the mat coat was put on I really couldn't see the dust effect anymore. I believe after six months of sitting on a shelf and the dust effect will return..LOL.

A few pictures for the post and the rest I will post in the campaign gallery.

Mark

Excellent work Mark. Looks very nice indeed.

I have been looking everywhere to find out if the bands around the shells were made of Brass, copper or another metal, but had no joy. I painted mine Brass too.

Just a couple of things I have noticed though, I hope you don't mind:
- The jack block and mount are on upside down. The block rests on the tray. The tray has the bracket supports under it. The block is held in place by the strap.


- The 4 lenses on the rear Notek light convey light should be very dark green (or lighter green if the light is on) not red. The 2 elliptical lenses under the cover below these lights were red.

Thanks Cristian.
I'm looking for the scene of the diorama (like Call of duty game - The modern warfare).
