Hi mates here are the next pic´s. The Goliath is done, the head and the gun are not yet glued so I can paint them separately. The Liesel is a 3d printed model, so I have to do a little bit work on the surface. Cheers Stefan

Hi Mates, today I start to build the base. The baseplates form MiniArt are very good, but the road is not wide enough for the E-50, so I made a new one from Styrodur. Cheers Stefan

Norbert Steffens
Great, I like it.

Nice start Stefan! What tool did you used for sculpting the road?
11. October 2019, 09:18
Stefan Schacht
Thanks Norbert and coporado. First, I use sandpaper to get a slightly rough surface and then I use a pencil to sculpt the cobblestones. Cheers Stefan

Hi Stefan, I think there must be a place for a russian Kugelpanzer.

Hallo Dirk, maybe later I change the E-50 against a Kugeltank 🙂 Cheers Stefan
