Hello everyone. Here is a build I just finished. I started this one about 5 months ago. As you will see it was pretty complicated because I completely replaced the fenders, storage bins, and upper armor plates with PE.

Stuff used: Dragon kit with ABER and Eduard photoetch, MIG Notek light, Elephant brass width indicator poles, Verlinden, Tamiya, Calibre35, and Royal Model stowage accessories/tools. Used kit supplied tracks and tires. Misc. other stuff like copper wire, evergreen styrene, etc.












The fighting compartment and drivers area was painted and weathered first because it would have been impossible to do it after the hull halves were mated.









Paint/Weathered:
Used Tamiya acrylics, 3 tone scheme: Desert Yellow (lightened with flat white), Olive Green, and Red Brown. Hull Red was used on the inside of the storage bins to indicate a red oxide primed surface. Used Vallejo acrylics for the rubber wheels and tires. The base coat was applied with an Iwata Eclipse BS, the camo pattern was applied with an Iwata Custom Micron C. Markings were sprayed on through Eduard PE stencil templates.

Entire underside was stippled with Squadron putty mixed with static grass and some fine sand. Primed with red oxide automotive spray primer.

Weathered with oil paint, MIG pigment, and pastel pencils.































Feedback/Comment/Suggestions Welcome!

Excellent work Ken. Every weld looks perfect and the weathering in general is outstanding. I had almost forgotten what a good model looks like..

Thanks for the comments everyone!  Smiley

Swa - I don't do dio's because I am a terrible figure painter. I make vingettes sometimes, but I crop closely on the vehicle because I dont want to do figs.

Jaybee - I have entered 1 competition since I've been modelling and it was last April (an IPMS event). I basically got smoked badly by some pros, only getting 2 bronze medals out of the 6 models I entered. I've been working hard all year on some new peices so when that show comes around here in April 2006, I hopefully will do a little better.

Damn that's nice! ... Say Ken.. don't you want your own WIP Section? The "Generel Section" is more for the folks that don't hammer out kits on a regular basis.. Smiley

Finished up the mounting base for it this weekend. This is the Stummel's final resting place. Grin

Backing is a peice of foamcore board, cobblestones made from dried lentils (beans!) and Liquitex modeling paste mixed with sand as the grout. The sewer grate is a resin part from PlusModel. Sprayed with earth and red brown acrylic, washed with oils, dry brushed then dusted with MIG pigment.

Immaculately done Ken! You gave me a great idea for a diorama with your glass case/street scheme, thanks for sharing.
