This is going to be the last post for the next two weeks because I'll be invading France :)
Yay! Holidays :)
I've been working continously on my Panzer IV's in the last week. Now the camo-job is done, the decals are applied and this evening I finished the washing. This is the first time I used dilluted oil-paint instead of GW-Inks.
Well, I'm pretty happy I tried this. I use "balm-turpentine" to thin it down. It has quite some smell, but since it's getting warmer outside I can open the window. I have the feeling that this mixture runs along the recesses and edges far better than the ink.
The downside is: It takes quite a long time to dry. This is why I'm posting instead of painting :D
So here's my production chain (including my 2 already finished Italeri/Esci Panzers):
What will be next? Well, I've got a nearly finished Hasegawa Flak-Halftrack. To be honest, I'm not very eager to finish this. Vinyl tracks are my personal horror and the provided crew which is absolutely neccessary for such a vehicle is unusable (tooo ugly).
I ordered I light Flak-Crew from http://mmsmodels.co.uk/. I've got no pictures of it, but I am very curious about the figures. Maybe that'll help getting on!
See you soon! Behave well and treat your mothers right!
Edit: Couldn't help... Pauls comment created a picture in my head.
I'd like to share it:
