Thread: Alpine News - Oct 2017

Superb! I’ve been hoping Alpine would do a (dedicated) later war Panzer IV turret crew set. Nice work Tae.

Bill

(Oh, and by the way Peter - I would love to see you paint these too).

Thread: Tamiya 1/48 Panzer IV Ausf H with Zimmerit

The upper hulls aren’t glued to the chassis. This Zimmerit is taking forever because cutting it out and drilling the holes for the bolts etc takes ages if you want to get it right - argh!

Tracks next, then glacis Zimmerit. Hrmph.

Peter & Keith; I do like these weights TBH, much more than the Zimmerit! LOL. The bench is a new one, so I have plenty of time to mess it up.

Sorting out the hull Zimmerit before the tracks now 😊

You’re right Jimbo. I need to push on through this build now and then get to the 1/48 Tigers which will be fun (and quicker).

The running gear has been prepped so is ready for assembly. Should be on to the upper hull by the weekend.

Ciao!

These little Panzer IV’s are coming together in fits and starts. I absolutely hate this stick-on Zimmerit. It’s vile. I hate it so much it’s slowing the build down.

Hi Dan. I might look at Optivisors when I go to Telford in November.

Steve; I don't think it looks like a bombs hit unless I'm on a deep moggelling super-detail mission, but usually that's siloed so it's micro-work and the 'mess' is easy cleaned. I've always been a kitchen table modeller so I had disciplined myself to tidy away after every session, but now not so. Here's looking forward to seeing whether I can keep tidy (I suspect I will).

Thread: Tamiya 1/48 Sturmtiger with Zimmerit

Hi Scottie - no problem. Thanks for chiming in now. It'll paint up nice once I get the AB out.

Hi Chris - I saw that Monru Purdue stuff on the web. Looks interesting. I don't like this Tamiya Zimmerit stuff TBH.

Hi Steve - bring on the paint! LOL.

Yo D! Solid indeed.

Chinky monkey - funny guy Pete. I don't like it tbh - horribly ugly tank.

On to the Panzer IV's.

This build is over, bar the shouting. I have to source a Bosch light, but that'll come out of the spares box if I can find I one. I think the rear part of the kit Bosch light got lost in France.

I'll revisit this thread when I get the AB out. Ciao!

This Tamiya Zimmerit is a lot more fussy than I expected.

Hi Dan - I hope that it doesn't lose its stickiness.

Simon - that's also on my mind. I guess Tamiya assume you'll use acrylic paint with it. Here's hoping.

Thanks for advice Dirk - I'll look into that.

Dan; not yet, but maybe soon. Any advice for which one(s) to buy?

Hi Dan

It has adhesive on the back of the sheet. Got to be precise with the fit, ideally first time.

Bill

Sort-of Ok, but I don't think I'll rely on this after I've used the stick-on Zimmerit stuff I've bought for this build, the Panzer IV Ausf H's and Tiger I late in 1/48. More WIP later.

Bill

I've started adding the Tamiya stick-on sheet Zimmerit;

I'm working on it Dirk - please me know if you think there are better options? Don't forget I've been a kitchen table moggeller for a decade, so I use what I can get. Any advice from the pro's would be gratefully received.
