SturmPanzer IV Brummbar

Postby beowulf » Sun Aug 28, 2016 10:34 pm

next thing on the bench.............

really old kit, was new tool back in 1976!

ive got some Academy aftermarket tracks for a Panzer IV chassis so might try them instead of the rubber ones, might use the figures or some MiniArt ones i have.....or maybe none at all...we shall see

had a few problems getting the schurzen rails on....left hand one is particulary skewed........not sure if its something ive done or if its slightly warped.........so i think this might be getting some battle damage to the schurzen themselves

next step is primer then i can think about getting some paint on

had a few problems along the way to get this far

i wanted to do a squiggly line camo........failed once.......reprimed, put down the dark yellow and had another go.......failed.....reprimed for another go...............and my compressor died!!!.......taken til next payday for another..........decided not to try the squiggly again since its already had so many coats, any more and im going to be getting problems cos of that!.....so went for a usual 3 colour yellow/green/brown.....it might not be the best ive done but im going to have to go with it.......its currently shiny cos its had a coat of varnish ready for the decals and then the weathering will tone it all down

ive done a bit of 'damage' to the scurzen so we shall see how that turns out in the end

Good recovery.

It's tough to do that camo. I have tried and failed too. Tried spraying really close at 12psi. That's what you are supposed to do I think.

so ive given it a black enamel wash.....thing was i didnt have any gloss so used matt and when thinned it went sort of 'bitty' and made a dirty wash........its had some matt varnish on top which has toned everything down

i was going to do an oil spot filter but now m not sure i will bother

had a few problems fixing the scurzen on, especially on the left hand side.....which is why ive made that side the battle damage side......next step is work out some 'cargo' and greebles to make it look a bit more used and then some light muddying up, nothing too much
