    Apparently JC,you have never painted the road wheels on a Panzer IV.The worst may not be over for good ole me262.

    Never a PZ IV in a scale larger than 1/72. :wink: :lol:

    Every time I build a German tank/half-track I think the reason they lost the war was because they had too many wheels! :p

    I'm finished!

    Trouble is, I can't get a decent photo, they all come out a bit blurry. I'm going to spend Saturday trying to get it right.

    Ricky;
    Be sure to have camera resting perfectly still on a hard surface when you take the pictures. Slight movements will make them blurry.

    Good Luck.

    I could use a little luck also. I have to hand paint the markings on this Tiger. Nobody has decals for the one I wanted to build.

    I'm looking forward to seeing those markings.I've been wanting to try that myself.
    Hopefully Boba will be finished with her Panther A today.Then I can get our tanks photographed and send the pics to PP as soon as possible.

    I agree on the pics.The camera my friend has can take incredible close-ups.I didn't include those because it would be useless to try and judge a vehicle by the drive sprocket alone. :D It was really nice to finally submit some good photos.Thanks PP.

    my pleasure ;)

    I could see it was a high quality, it took quite long to upload them!
    You're most welcome though, it's nice to help present those models.
