Once again great mix up, not sure if done on purpose, but it is great viewing. Cheers.

If truth be known Chuckie I get bored easily and usually have half a dozen projects on the go so I can swap from one to another as interest waxes and wanes.

Glad you like the line up.

November.

Not a bad month but there is a hell of a lot of stuff that I have close to being finished but really doesn't make the cut, which is kinda frustrating. Still some progress is better than no progress.

First up, SdKfz 140.
Image
Image
This a conversion from a PSC Pz38t lower hull and Sdkfz250/9 turrent. The upper hull is a scratch build.

H35 by S Model. Both the long 47mm and 37mm short gun versions. Nice little kits these and not as fiddly as some S Model kits are.
Image
Image

PSC Bren Carriers. Never seem to have enough carriers. Must paint a few in desert colours.
Image

Pegasus JS-2. These are beasts of models. Must build a King Tiger one day and compare.
Image
The same but a little more "used". Needs more mud and wear on the upper hull.
Image

Well thats it for another month and the end of the year will soon be here.

Great work on the 38T conversion!

I like the 1940 French tanks painted with the 'hard edge' paint schemes. Many of them are all killer looking vehicles pity about the single man turrets and lack of radios! :?

Thank you Capt Darling. The turret is not quite right but close enough for Government work, or at 4ft range on the table. Might do some more French later on so there will be some hard edge schemes to come. Thought I had it right doing freehand with the airbrush but it washed out a bit after varnishing. Live and learn.

Hey Tony,
Yeah I noticed the Sdkfz140 had the earlier turret when it should really have the later simplified six sided one but it still looks the business!
Looking forward to seeing more 1940s French armour, lovely stuff.
Cheers!

December.

Well this last month has been far busier and thus, as far as painting goes, far less productive than I had expected. Still I managed to get the following done.

Swedish Livgarde. Figures by Wargames Factory.
Image

Russian dragoons byt the same.
Image

Tank crew for previously finished tanks.
Image
Image

German Marder. An Altaya repaint with PSC crew.
Image

Pegasus SU-85/100.
Image

KV-8s flame thrower tank. An IDT kit I think.
Image

Oh how I love magnets. So we start with a simple PDRM repair truck from IDT...
Image

And get a radio truck...
Image

...a normal truck...
Image

...and an AA truck.
Image

Out of interest I have been keeping track of what I have painted this year. In total this to also 400 items (if counting some 91 crew seperately). Not bad but still not making a serious dent in the stash. Better luck this year.

Me and my dislexia. Somehow I put IDT (from my very faulty memory) when it should actually be PST (having found and reread the assembly instructions).

I got both kits off a mate (see these Tyberius) who has had them for a while, a long while.

I hope that clears things up.

Thanks for the reply mate.
Now it makes sense.
I love PST kits - they come up a dream once painted, and I believe an under rated series, but alas gone :(

Good looking kits but the tank tracks are a complete bastard to put together properly. Hard plastic in a number of straight sections and then individual links....YUCK.
