The Big Spring Contest 2013?

Great guys at SMA are holding a competition again. Check the rules and join the party here. A lot of prizes from Badger and other sponsors and of course great experience. This is my 3rd time I enter the competition and this contest was quite successful for me - I won the airbrush and several sets of paints. This year I am out of my comfort zone - entering into car category with 1/35 Opel Stabswagen:)

My build thread would be at this location but I will keep updates here too. Sorry for pictures without white balance and fancy camera, but I want to do it simple so far. Better images later, when I decide how to paint it.

Portfolio: Flakpanzer I.

As I promised, here are images of the finished model. For mud and snow I used pigments from Vallejo and Wilder. Winter vehicles from Mike Rinaldi were my inspiration this time.

Update on publications.

First of all, here is a cover of new issue of MMI, where my Zrinyi is featured on 8 pages.

Next is a second issue of SMA magazine that has my Maultier coal truck. The pre-orders are available at their website. Really like the cover and it is my first ever article on North American magazine. As you see it is a mix of subjects from armour to sci-fi and u-boat, so I am looking forward to it!

p.s. hopefully I would be able to show you the images of Flakpanzer I this week. I just send the article to editorial office and need to finish ADGZ article now.
