    To be exact horse meat was a common ingreadient but I guess dogs, cats and rats probably filled the meat request when not available, I wonder what the starved besieged soldiers in Stalingrad had to endure ...

    What are those Rob, bullet holes?

    Personally I feel a bit overdone, these kitchens were not put on the firing line but behind lines and were an essential item to keep safe, remember soldiers do not fight on an empty stomach ... depends what you have in mind if not a KO vehicle which was left on a side of the road ie, caught in an air raid for example ...

    since I wish to attach this to a truck I thought they might be damaged during transportation.. even weathering u think is overdone?

    thank u for pinpointing these details

    Scratches are fine but extreme dents I find it overdone on something not attached to a fighting frontline for, it is my opinion so it is a matter of discussion, I wish others contribute and comment to get different views on weathering options.

    Robert is so excited with his new modelling hobby that he want to experiment new fields.Considering with just four models he has touched almost all subjects except marine which that is reserved for elite, he is doing fine.
    He is still in the learning curve which is more of a spike and he is willing to listen but he needs to finish as many nodels as possible to quench his desire.

    keep modelling
    Eventually!

    Robert is a super fast learner & as David stated he is trying to quench his thirst with as many models & with as many techniques as possible. He will learn from his over zealousness for sure & mostly from the able guidance of the seasoned veterans such as Ivan Twisted Evil cheers

    Robert, stay tuned Shocked

    Are you still planning to have teh kitchen ontop the truck or pulled?

    That redish patina is not clear from fotos, is it terrain weathering or rust patina?

    I would add some sooth inside and on the top part of the pipe aswell, check some reference images to help you. Do not forget some glossy stains ...

    Keep them coming Rob

    If you really want to add some damage to it Rob, just go for dents and scratches but avoid the bullet holes. I am sure that with handling, it would have been dented and bruised. That would look cool.

    thats terrain Ivan but I have to do it again because when I applied the stain varnish it came like that.

    Pulled that's why I kept the wheels.the pipe still has a lot of work to be done and there's more weathering to be done as well.

    Theres more work to be done.but I thank you and appreciate your comments

    Understood, asked you if pulled or not is because of the trim of the wooden wheels, if these are pulled they are fine, if these are stationed on the truck a rust patina will look more realistic as the metal is not being polished with the terrain anymore.

    Regarding the soot, I think you should add, will add character ... though being transported these kitchens would have been used before ...

    Avoid varnishes after weathering, it will destroy the whole idea, you have to create different sheens, so keep that in mind, if weathering mud or dust work also different colours ... keep in mind the terrain this gonna be, Russia will be different from France for example. Russian campaign was almost devoid of proper roads apart the big cities, France is more common to find harder terrain and cobbled streets ... keep always the weather in mind, as it reflect your weathering.

    You are inspiring me doing the russian counterpart ... but have too many loose ends for the time being Sad so better focus on one project ...
