This is not one of the most accurate documentaries out there. But I still find it interesting to see illustrated and detailed engagements of different tank battles. Here is the complete season 2 of this series, check it out:
Finally! The model is complete. I guess it turned out ok and as always I learned a lot to say the least.
Even tough I decided not to create a base for this model. I had some kits from Miniart laying around so on pure impulse this base just happened. I think it came out quite cool with the dirt and wet effects. Just have to finish up the tank now and this model is done!
This model is finally coming to an end. It has given me some unreal bad luck and hardships to cope with. So i’m glad I’m finally through it. The tracks are still left and I have ordered metal tracks from Friulmodel instead of the plastic ones loosly fitted on now. In Sweden the number 13 is for BAD LUCK so it rightfully received them on the turret. I find it really hard to righteously recreating the model on images but will try to take better pictures once the new tracks are fitted.
Finding 15 minutes here and there adds up quite well. Color-modulation is now done on this OT-34 from Dragon models. For those of you that have followed this blog, knows that construction on this model was completed at the first week of the year. But a massive series of misfortunes have really tested my temper on this one. Therefore it will rightfully receive the number 13 on it’s turret. Let’s just hope that the rest goes well now. Weathering and detail painting is up next. It’s hard to take good pictures of it, but here it is:
I can finally show the progress on my first ever Diorama build. It represents a retreating Soviet KV-2 tank stuck on a railway trestle bridge during October 1941. Supposedly attacked by a dive bomber such as a German Stuka, the Crew managed to escape the tank in time. But when they get back they see that the Stuka kinda missed the tank but still managed to destroy the bridge and disable the KV. Therefor the title “No Way Home”
I just recently started the construction of a knocked out KV-2 on a railway bridge. I will soon post pictures of the completed construction before painting. But I thought I could start with sharing some of the inspiration for this diorama.
This is the Dragon OT-34/76 built with some extras from Voyager and Aber. I built this as a quick project to try out some new painting ideas I have. The tracks are just temporary fitted here.
