    Hi Frank,

    welcome to the forums. You've really made some astonishing models there. I'm very impressed!

    Tomgrey, glad to see you've finished the Stug. It became a very nice one! Especially the tin can in the hand of the commander ;)

    Great work both of you!
    :cool:

    The only thing I've been working on on the modelling front of late is trenchwork for a trench raiding game a mate of mine spotted. Trenches are done, We just have to find time to actually try out the game.

    Other than that too much time spent of the computer writing (or trying to ) to get anything else done.

    I'm doing a LaGG-3 as a present for a friend's birthday. I'm doing a mini-diorama, and I'll post pics here when I'm done.

    Snowdrops in Hell _ 44/45 Belgium, Germany


    So here are the first pics about the 1:35 Zvezda M3 Scout...60%...base paint with a limited weathering, aging...need to correct some mistakes... (This kit is one of the worst of my life! I dont recommend to anyone...)

    The figures came from the Dragons 101st AB / Bastogne w/ Verlinden heads...needs some corrections

    The Ma' Deuce and .30cal is an Academy made...US machine guns set...very very recommended... the .50 cal is altogether 15 parts with the mounting and ammobox!!!!!

    Particular problems?? There weren't particular problems. The FULL kit a problem...

    Fixing problems, unlogical parting, some places the plastic was too thin, the glus melt it (? right word?), moulding mistakes...a lot!

    To tell the truth the kit is very old, so dont expect too much...

    ST wait until I finished...in this moment there is not much detailing in it.

    The biggest prob is that I cant find an exact division numbering, marking for it...

    I'll be putting the finishing touches on a 1/35 DML Panther Ausf. D.I'll send PP some pics to post in a few days.I must say this was a great kit.Especially the indy links.No flash whatsoever and they fit together perfectly.
