What's on your bench?

I had a birthday last week and my wife bought me a Me 509 kit in 1/48 from Trumpy! What a surprise! She said that she liked the flying bomb a lot, and now she wants to me build an aircraft! In 2 words it is a very nice kit and I am waiting for some aftermarket stuff (exhaust, MG barrels) before I can work on it. But in principle it can be build withing a single weekend.

Another kit that I got today is a Dragon's Bison II! Will start building it while I am painting the Sd.Kfz. 6. Since both of the vehicles belong to DAK I will try to do smth to make them look different. 

So, what's on your bench, friends?

Panzer II, 1940.

This is a Tamiya kit with Voyager PE, RB model barrels and some corrections. Painted in colour modulation style and weathered with various techniques. I used no decals here - only stencils. The marking was done according to the photograph in the book about campaign in France and Netherlands.

The model was sold to private collection.

1/48 Staghound Mk.III finally done!

I was waiting for Black dog stowage set for more than 1 month and when I finally got it I was impatient to finish the work with my Staghound. The fit is close to excellent, I just trimmed some elements from the inner side. The small backpacks got slings from Tamiya masking tape :)

1st place in the contest!

Today is my birthday and at the same time the voting at the DiShow2011 is finished. My staghound 1/48 from Bronco scored at the 1st place according to visitors choice! I am so glad. It was my 1st model in 1/48 and now it is a winner :)

sWS mit Flak 43, tracks.

I am continuing my sWS work and now I am working on the tracks. These were painted with Tamiya and Vallejo acrylics. Just a base for further weathering.
