Job done, game over.

Pretty cool Tom and welcome to the dark side that is 1/35 scale armour 😉👍

Your build reminded me that I have this kit in the stash as well.
If/when I get around to it, I will probably do it in an early camo scheme.

This one inspired me to start my own, older Tamiya kit... the Panzer IV

Neuling
Very good result! 👍

Now with a very Nice weathering. Well done 👍
19. June, 11:23
Tom
James, Neuling, Rui, thank you 👍 I am very pleased with the result and happy to cross the finish line. Now I can just enjoy the model without thinking about what I need to do next 😄

James, that PzIV looks good, are you posting pics?

Planning what stowage to add.

I like this Tamiya 1/48 MMV series. A bit easier on the eyes for building than 1/72, but still compact for my limited working/display space. Starting off with the Firefly.
3. January, 13:46
Tom
Build a basic paint job done. Got a coat of satin varnish on. Next step: planning some basic weathering - a bit of dust, etc.
11. April, 07:16
Tom
I want to get the basics done: dust, wear and tear, but I've not done weathering before. Should I airbrush the dust, or dot filter, or a general wash or filter? Any suggestions for basic treatments welcome. Cheers! 🙂

Excellent, thx JD! 👍

No problem! Also check out Dave's model workshop for another great tutorial Youtube Video

Tom
Thanks JD, great resources! I spent half my life without the internet, how did we manage back then? 😄
13. April, 02:29
Tom
The thing holding me back is fear of failure. I should just dive in and try these things. I can't get kits very easily/economically where I am, so I hate the idea of trashing a kit. Especially a Sherman 😄
13. April, 02:31
JD
Yeah, just dive in and play and experiment like you are a kid again, and don't worry about messing things up, because failure is the greatest teacher. When I first started up again 5 years ago I was so afraid to mess up a model, that I built a little tank out of wood to learn to airbrush on, then later grabbed some toys from the local dollar store to practice on. When I felt comfortable enough I switched to actual models, and have been doing it ever since. It's a good idea to practice on stuff you don't care about first to gain experience 😉

Nice going, that's very cool! Airbrush is coming along, and the figures turned out nice. Well done 👏

Thanx mate, haven't had that much fun in quite some builds.
12. June, 17:50
Mark
Flash-back - I can remember building this as a kid! You've done a very good job Ralf. 👍
12. June, 17:58
Ralf Topeters
THX Mark, I've had this as a kid too. I just had not painted it in the days. I wasn't skilled enough at the time I build it then.

Thanks! Started working on the damage and rubble behind the Sherman due to the Panzerfaust hit.
30. May, 15:18
Sebastiaan
Worked some more on the rubble and damage behind the Sherman. Also worked on the British soldier, he's as good as finished. I like the result.
5. June, 19:45
Olivier
So do I.
5. June, 20:58
Sebastiaan
Continued working on the other German, a Fallschirmjäger. Painted camo on his jacket and added the first couple of decals. Also added a picture of German camouflage I used as an example.
8. June, 19:22
Sebastiaan
The British soldier is finished. He's got the insignia of the Irish Guards on his uniform and the German Fallschirmjäger with the camouflage jacket is finished. Finished the camo and painted his face.

My great uncle served in the same unit, so I made this for my dad. He was close to Uncle Richard, but Richard talked very little about his time in Italy.

Sebastiaan
Started building the Asuka Firefly. No pics from the actual build but Asuka builts very nice and fast. Everything fits very well. Using a detail set from Black Dog with the hessian camouflage. Started to add hessian tape made from masking tape to make the transitions from the hull to the pieces of tape more smooth. Also pictured are the tank crew busts I'm gonna use.
22. May, 19:30
Sebastiaan
Figure busts are from Resicast. I really like the stuff Graham from Resicast makes.
22. May, 19:41
Sebastiaan
I'm gonna add additional stuff on the front part the hull. First I have to finish the lower hull part with the suspension and finish the tracks because the hessian tape pieces cover the upper part of the tracks and hull. Then upper and lower hull parts can be glued together and additional stuff like spare tracks and/or boxes can be adder.
23. May, 17:33
Michael Osadciw
Nice! I'm using the same kit for a French did soon. Good to hear it went together well as its my first Asuka kit.
24. May, 18:16
Michael Osadciw
I'm curious: once you have the figs in the hatches is it obvious at all that this kit has no turret interior or 17pdr breech?
24. May, 18:17
Sebastiaan
Thanks Michael! Currently building 4 Asuka Sherman kits and they all are excellent. When you use the Asuka turret and you put full figures in the turret you won't see that the kit hasn't turret interior because they will fill most of the hatch opening. The turret I'm using here is the turret of the Black Dog detail set. In that toen there's only room for half figures.
