On the desk...

Since Blutvogt, Mork and Wiking already posted lots of pictures from the Inspiration Modellbau, I decided not to post anymore... Hope that's ok ;)

Instead I'd like to show, what's currently on my desk:
Let's start off with the least finished:
Armourfast German Machine Gun Team #1. The guy on the right needs an ammo-belt prior to painting.

Armourfast German Machine Gun Team #2. One soldier brings new ammo, the other feeds the gun.
I had to slightly adjust his right arm, so that his pose makes any sense at all ;)

Ok, next:

Two Armourfast Sd.Kfz.251/1. Unfortunately, these are the early war variants. I'm waiting for PSCs Ausf. D :)

Zvezda Flak 38. A real beauty. I dislike the plastic a bit, but the details are just great!
Hasegawa "8 ton Half Track Quadruple 20mm AA. Also known as Sd. Kfz. 7/1 
This kit has quite some flash. I would rate somewhere between average and pain in the ass...

 Since the original Hasegawa gun barrels with 1mm thickness were a real no-go, I bought some ABER barrels in Mainz at the IM. They look far better :)

Were getting closer to the end:

This is the ICM Sd.Kfz. 222
I really like this one, it was a pleasure to build. Good that the added the option of the late-style wheels :)
The only downside: The etched bass on the turret-top is a little too wide.

Ok, now the last project. Most recently added and most advanced:
Plastic Soldier Company Panzer IV. Great Model for wargamers. I opened the muzzle-break, and will add the Schürzen of course. Since these neat little bastards come quite cheap, I'm going to experiment with broken and misplaced Schürzen :)

Hope you like them...
