There's no such thing as "perfect", not even in real life...
Don't give yourself a nervous breakdown over a few "spots". Anyone who is going to count the spots or criticize their shape, color or their placement on your figures' camo clothing, needs to get THEIR heads examined...
Thanks mate, its not bothering me too much, but I'm one of those people who looks right past all the good and can only see the mistakes in my own work
Enough lurking, time to de-cloak – it’s a beauty Steve! Great PE work too & I don’t care if the odd spot’s out of place on the camo jacket, you’ve got that authentic hunch on the guy which is far more important, quite Rutmanesque. Although that MG34, are you sure the barrel’s aligned - it looks like it’s pointing slightly north of true? Any decisions on the dio yet?
G'day mate! - thanks for the kind words! As Mark said, its actually the whole gun in that pic - the whole gun wasnt glued into the cradle at the time...
Really shaping up nicely! Great detail for this scale.
Thanks J, much appreciated!
Nice work Doc , fig is cool man don't sweat it , gotta agree with Tim about the long dog look on the mg tho .....
Cheers mate, much appreciated!
To me, the barrel looks like it's aligned okay; it's the fact the whole gun is mounted at a slight angle to the cradle that creates that appearance, I think. The back end of the gun is sitting just a tiny bit low in the cradle. My $0.02...
Bingo -whole gun was a bit off in the pic. I was gonna do the gun and mount separately, but decided to glue it for paint at the last minute. As is the was, she took a tumble and the whole cradle snapped. Got it back together, but the cradle is a bit bent now! Should be okay though as there will be an MG shield covering them -
The main focus of my attention lately has been the crew. This dude looks a lot better in person (dont they all?) but the pics came out okay:
And the commander, with his autumn camo pants:
Glad they turned out so well, they'll look very nice INSIDE the bloody tank!
Anyways, I should have some ambush masks arriving tomorrow or Tuesday, so should be able to move forward with the Hetzer...
Thanks for looking!
