Lots of little sub-assemblies which makes for easier painting and assembly.



So far, everything is paint (I won't be using the decal deck). Very few decals will be used I'm thinkin'.



The instructions are 99% Japanese. I'm pretty sure that the instructions call for four Gunze colors and because I don't use those, I used the colors from Tamiya's 1/350 Yamato battleship. Makes it so much easier.

Getting close.......



The little turret on top of the bigger turret (front and rear) has some putty there (white) for the only real seam that needed to be cleaned up.

Nice progress, Mike. Looks like a neat little kit.

A little more progress on my Dust Tactics 1947 walkers. Next are the decals and weathering.

More to follow soon

I enlisted to few campaigns but I've never finished my models on time. This might be perfect campaign for me.


I would like to do an Academy's Late Hetzer (1:35). I will use Tamiya's rubber tracks instead of Academy's links and lengths (50 pieces less) and few other details from other companies. With all those changes, I think I will easily fit into 150- parts requirement.


Unfortunately, I've glued some parts to the lower hull before taking the evidence photo. If you forgive me this, I could start with this project right now.

Welcome to the campaign, Marek!

The glued parts are not a problem.

Not much to see, but 42 parts were used already. I'd like to convert my Hetzer to an ex-Swiss G-13 painted as a German one and used in reenactment

Cristian, in order to do an G-13 I have to add oil drain plugs and towing hook's reinforcements. Should I count them as new parts?
