SU-152 in progress

This is a beautiful kit from Bronco built straight from the box. Still thinking of weathering here and there  + need to add figure. 

I appreciate your opinions. Thanks for watching.

Stuarts attack;)

Few weeks remain until the release of October issue of MMI that features my M3A3 with Flakvierling and now I am building a second Yugoslav conversion of Stuart tank - this time with Pak40 anti-tank gun. At least 5 were converted and the vehicle was rather successful. Again this is a Ding-Hao kit that combines AFV club parts with resin. So far I added a stowage on the bow plate and need to replicate welds around the armour shields of the open-top compartment. Stay tuned!

p.s. Just realized I didn't mention the Flakpanzer I article in June issue of MMI!

T-34-76 factory 183

Seems like I am into T-34 topic this year. Another one is on my bench and it based on a well-known Bundesarchive image.

The kit is from AFV club and I added various photo-etched bits here and there, Masterclub metal track links, resin exhausts from Celticwerks and tarp from Greenstuff putty. 

The plan is to have it on a base with a figure but without Tiger I tank towing it, therefore I cut the cables ;)

I used multi-layered chipping technique and enamel weathering for the battered look. 

Same approach on the hull and tarp was painted with acrylics.

Next step is snow and wet effects and now it is a matter of adding effects here and there and incorporate the model into groundwork. 

What is on your bench now?
