Thread: Panzer IV Ausf H, early

Hi Bill

Even without your usual bling fest this looks superb. The kit itself is a credit to Dragon and your skill makes a super neat job. The figures fit perfectly and so nice to see a full crew. Often we see one or two and have to imagine the others face 20

Hi Ron

Looking very good. The details really do improve the engine.

Hope you and your good lady enjoy the holiday.

Hi all

Once again I must apologise for the late reply to all your kind comments and the lack of progress.

Simon - when I said "You clearly can't do as much detailing as you can with 1/35" I was referring to mortals like myself not mad braille scalers like your good self face 20 face 22 wink 2

I have managed to fit in some bench time but up until now there didn't seem much to show. Almost all the detail painting is done and the decals are on. Next is a satin coat and the washes etc.

I hope to display this with the bridge deployed. I have seen a YouTube video of a bridge being laid over a partly frozen river and with heavy frost/light snow on the ground. Might be possible and if it goes wrong then no worries, I can fall back on plan A (whatever that is!) thinking

Hi Ron

Such interesting references. Shows how things vary. Great work on the plugs. I like the tip of rounding the ends of the sprue by using heat. That is far better then trying to sand a rounded end.

Beautifully done. The base works well. One to be very proud of.

Hi Sjors

A great build. Even more impressive taking into account it is 1/72.

Hi John

Great that it is all sorted. Very frustrating though. We had problems when we moved and like you they messed about for ages and yet the problem was sorted so easily in the end.

Hi Simon

Didn't expect this wink 2 Despite John doubting you can alter much on a figure I reckon there is an opportunity for some pewter.

Hi Richard

Planks look a much better scale now. You have done a great job with the figures. Is it just the photo or does the head, on the second from the left top, look odd?

Hi Richard

Those figures are coming on a treat. Modifying them at this scale must be a very fiddly job.
