    Great job on the Dennis memorial there. :D
    And, not to forget, you really did a good job on the tracks. Seeing this pic you can't tell it was a hard job fitting them together.

    Hi Ricky,

    Rock solid! looks like a good job. I'm so happy that the paint dried well on your tank, it would have been sheer disaster if you had to repaint the whole thing.
    I only like to ask the question most commonly heard during this GB:

    What kind of green did you use?
    :wink:

    Humbrol 80

    I'm hoping you can find a way to get some pictures of your model...

    Nice job Ricky.And I also think that shade of green rocks for Russian vehicles.Did you hand paint the lettering?It looks very authentic.
    I built the SU-100 version of your TD.Badass little kit,ain't it.
    PP,once again,thanks for posting our pics.
    Thanks for the compliments guys.

    Thanks! Yes, the lettering is hand-painted. Unless the online translator lied to me it should read DENNIS in English.

    Worthy? Your model rocks! I love the extreme weathered look! Are you sure you haven't been making models all your life?

    ST is a lucky lucky guy... :wink:

    Slightly off topic but where can i start collecting these models! :)

    I play Flames of War miniture game and i use the British, my army consists of mainly Mortors, I love them.

    Also very nice painting, i would suggest using shading on the pure green tank too add depth. Oh and it does say Dennis

    I did - but a combination of the camera flash and the fuzzy picture has removed the effect. I need a better camera.

    Oh, and thanks for the confirmation!

    Hi guys!

    I finally got some worthy pics of my ISU 152. The pictures still don't show off it's full potential, but I'm going to have to go with it :p

    Note: the size of that monsterous barrel....had to refit the pics.

    My sincerest thanks to SturmTiger for his tips during the building of this model.

    Check your local hobby shop.The models pictured are 1/72,1/35 and1/48 scale.For flames of war I would imagine your using 1/72 or maybe 1/76 scale vehicles.

    Siverous;
    I like Flames of War. There are about 5 or 6 of us here who play about once or twicwe a month. At the moment all I really have is a 2000 point US Airborne force with some M-10 and M-4 platoons for support. I want to get something else but can't decide between Panzergrenadiers and British Infantry (Merlin's pictures have got me interested in them).

    BTW;
    There is no scale limit. FOW models are acceptable in the group builds.

    PP;
    Good job on the ISU. :D

    Thanks guys! That's really nice of you :)

    ST- I did the wheels as follows:
    1. Base paint in green (whatever green you like :p ;) )
    2. Rims and inside of the wheels in gun metal (the humbrol kind!)
    3. Drybrush the front side and rims with a mixture of sand, rust and brown. But only a little. (I've been known for overdoing it so I tried hard not to spoil too much this time)

    that did the trick...
    I'm really glad you like it!
