About Paulo R Castro (ArmouredSprue)
FROM: SOUTH AUSTRALIA, AUSTRALIA

I'm a 43 years old modeller originally from Brazil but now living in the beautiful Adelaide South Australia, and I like to build 1/35th military vehicles, both tanks and AFV and jeeps and trucks. I also enjoy building planes in 1/72, most WWII. Feel free to contact me by e-mail: armouredsprue@gmai...


Comments

This must be the dirtiest, filthiest tank I have ever seen. COOOOL!! Really well done Armouredsprue. All the methods involved are well done. I have tried a panzer II with the detergent effect. Pictures very soon. Although I like my tanks dirty ... the over weathering is not supposed to be cool anymore ... well according to all the "experts" anyway. A lot of comments are starting to surface now about too many chips and rust, etc. and it being unreal. blah, blah, blah. I have just finished a panther D and almost finished my panzer II and they will join the dirty club. tha´ts the way I like it babay!

Great job on the Italeri Pz1V G Paulo. The white camo and weathering is supurb. I have 4 of the darn things in various stages of completion. I finally got tired of filling the almost 30 ejector pin marks on the rear plate and bought Tiger Model Designs resin rear plates to replace the kit parts. A bit of filing and sawing to make them fit, but less work than fixing all those ejector pin marks.

You've been building it for a year?!?!? whoa, have you got little time or are you very pesky about the details? :-) well I hope you give it a good sandyellow base with some dark green in stripes or something that would look really cool
