1/48 scale Sd.Kfz.10

A few days ago I got a Demag kit for review at It is made by new company and it was really interesting to see what they offer. The full build review would appear at Armorama soon but if you are impatient     - еhe quality is OK, but not up to Tamiya or Bronco rank.

I forgot to put smth next to it for the size comparison, but it is as high as MIG pigment jar.

What's on your bench?

It's been a bad month with next to zero activity but I managed to make myself gluing some plastic and resin.

1st project in work now is L4500R from Revell, pretty bad kit, all round parts require a lot of clean up, the front cab part is deformed. brrr. Anyway, I started painting the cab on Friday.

Another model I am working (or at least started working) is a resin kit from Hauler - Panterturm. THe quality is really god and I want to make a vignette with it, who knows...
It is pretty big, comparing to Staghound, but small anyway comparing to 35th scale :)

All parts attached, waiting for paintwork!

Wirbelwind in print!

I just got news that my Flakpanzer Wirbelwind appears in next issue of Military Illustrated Modeller!

For me it was a challenging project - fitting the Trumpeter interior into the DML hull, soldering PE fenders, making zimmerit from putty and using some new techniques for painting. I based it on a reference image from Panzerwrecks book. 

Check the magazine when it is out and now you can see some images of the completed model. 

At the show...
