That looks a nice kit Richard. Small but deadly in the right hands ;)

I have only seen one of these tanks close up and you don't realise how small they are but as Patrick says very dangerous in the right hands. I also like the Mg on the periscope which was an inovitive idea at the time


This is going to look very special when built and painted


Lovely kit


Regards


Robert

Unfortunately no paint mask is this one


Have a disc camo stencil and metal barrel coming from this as fancy having a go at the ambush pattern

Some photos of where I am so far Hull halves are almost ready to join together just need to add the scopes for the main gun and the close defense machine gun, wheel rubber painted just needs to be masked to protect when airbrushing

Just a warning to anyone with this kit in their stash check carefully that you have been provided with all the poly caps their needs to be 4 large and 4 small poly caps this box only had 4 small caps 2 for drive sprocket 1spare and 1 for close defense machine gun had to dig in spares boxes for poly caps that would fit with a bit of modification on the gun barrel base

As my box was missing the poly caps,or I was thinking well were did i put them,looked,


for hrs in ever nook and carny ,but no poly caps,to be found,:confused::eek:


so after sitting and looking at it for a bit,well the only thing,not having spares


was to fill the wheel with silicon,and let set for a day,:rolleyes: ;)

I think I spent an entire day on my hands and knees checking the area I model for the poly caps thinking they had hit the deck, apart from some parts for the spares boxes had no luck


The Hetzer is now all together just awating on the metal barrel and she will be ready for primer and paint

Thats because it is Poundshop Primer :D


it was a toss up between the Halfords stuff or Poundland and Poundland was closer.


Should be able to get a fair crack at the Disc Camo this weekend

I'm a great advocate of Poundshop primer! It's cheaper than the Halfords stuff ml for ml & just as good.


Having said that, I'm keen to try the unpronounable primer coz it means less overspray.

I have tried the Stynylrez Primers they are great definately less overspray I used them straight from the bottle into the Airbrush.


Like using the Poundshiop stuff for AFV's and shall probably use it on some of the 1/24th models I have in my stash as coverage should be quicker from can and 1/24 wont fit in spray booth
