    Italeri Panzer IV ausf H

    Post  Magal on Thu Mar 06, 2014 6:11 pm

    Panzer IV rescued from the scrap heap, given a new scheme and returned to the front line.
    An abandoned project had left me with two PzIV's finished the obsolete Verlinden way  Mad - a turned barrel and separate tracks plus a little detailing, new schurzen and a new respray complete with white wash turned out one of them to a more presentable condition.
    Thanks for watching - comments and critique welcome

    Great work. It is a great move and you changed the model completely. Love it and also the setting. Well done!!

    Thanks Brian, would have been a shame to throw away a model after doing all that extra work on it.

    Thanks Ray. I'm actually thinking of adding a tad more mud on the inside of the trcks to help tie in the tank with the terrain

    i think that it would be a great idea. I saw the tank and the club last week but no base. The base sure set it off, well done.

    Always had a soft spot for white washed tanks. May I just suggest more mud spatters on the add on side armour....just my personal preference....

    Like it Marco, I love how you manage to bring up old hags to such a standard ... re mud I do not agree to add more, I would rather apply some gloss varnish to create some 'fresh' mud and some snow ... do not go overboard we get carried away that in snowwy climates the tanks manage to earth out mud, it is completly the opposite, when the snow is still in its early stages or melting away we get that effect, mid winter would be just a white field!

    i agree with ivan on this one. frozen ground is as hard as rock and will not churn up much mud.just give it some wet effect.
    btw you did great work on this old kit. ps remind me re wheels/idlers
