I started this project some days ago. The assembly of the tank was quite simple. Next steps will be the further groundwork with the trench and priming the tank.
1. October 2017, 16:16
Cool... ich freue mich drauf, dieses Projekt zu folgen! Grüße aus Dänemark

I'm in for this interesting dio.
Nice progress 👍
The tank is OOB?
1. October 2017, 17:20
Moritz Fentzahn
Thanks mates, you are welcome.
@ Rui
Yes the tank is oob, there is no aftermarket stuff which makes sense for me. I will only add some metal chains and Equipment from my spares-box
1. October 2017, 17:24
Rui S
I agree and I've the same philosophy. But your additions are somewhat expensive, aren't they?
I look forward for new photos😎
1. October 2017, 17:30
Moritz Fentzahn
What additions do you mean, the figures? In my opinion Figures are always way too expensive but nevertheless they are essential for every dio, aren't they?😉

I was speaking only about the sandbags - flexible - 100 pcs. and PlusModel, British rucksack WW I
1. October 2017, 18:35
Moritz Fentzahn
Ah ok, I buyed the sandbags for several projects and the bigger pack is cheaper in the end. But basically you are right, zhese additions are expensive in total

Just finished the trench-section. After drying the base is ready for it's coat of primer. I hopeyou can enjoy the pictures

Liked your Kübelwagen diorama and this one looks promising already...thanks for documenting the building steps!
2. October 2017, 19:24
I like it very much. not may dios with a WWI trench out there. and you are making it from scratch. it looks really good already!
2. October 2017, 20:17
Moritz Fentzahn
Thank you mates, much appreciated

Michael Kraft
Whoa, that's superb! I love how you made the wooden construction look functional, yet improvised!
5. October 2017, 07:20
Very nice so far!!

Sven Schönyan
Looks great so far! I´m following with interest to get inspiration for an own dio like this :)
7. October 2017, 15:50
Nice build !
7. October 2017, 15:52
Moritz Fentzahn
Thanks a lot mates.
Meanwhile I primed the base and the tank. The trench and the tracks got their first color coat. I am trying to paint the tank this evening, so maybe I can add some pics later

Fabian D.
Off to a promising start already 👍

What's your opinion on the sandbags? Worth it?
7. October 2017, 17:25
Moritz Fentzahn
Thanks Fabian. And no, the sandbags don't worth the effort to get them in shape especially in relation to their price. This was the first and last try with them. Next time I will use magic sculp and make them on my own. So in my opinion: Hands off

Sieht gut aus!

After more than one yea, I took the Whippet from the shelve and started the weathering. The basic work is nearly done. One side and some overall final touches are still missing. I am sure, the next update will nottake another year...

Daniel Klink
Looks awesome Moritz👍 The Weathering effects are on spot MAte. Great

I could spent some more hours on the Whippet, so the tank is finished now. Next I have to finish the base and some equipment for the storage boxes and the trench

Very impressive, Moritz. As usual. I think it's not a good idea for the tank to proceed in this direction...

Tom ...
I think it's brilliant. Maybe someday I could do one third as well as this. But I understand that the modeler is his/her own toughest critic!
