Hi Sebastian! Happy new year to you as well!!!
The Meng zimmerit water slide decals are just too thin to look realistic, and this is a shame because it worked so much better than the Tamiya vinyl zimmerit they did for a couple of models. I fully understand that you can't make really thick decals but the pattern isn't deep enough to look plausible.
I saw someone who'd painted their zimmerit with some sort of "pure" acrylics and the pattern almost disappeared... I'm using Tamiya paint and lacquers so I'm not worried here, but realistic it ain't sadly.
My Entwicklungsserie project is coming along nicely but it's a hefty build - and I've gone and added yet another kit to it... Some are part in GB's this year so I couldn't start all the E-100 at the same time for example, but I've got three of them on the desk right now! It'll take until the summer to complete these ones - just the plastic, and then paint, but that should go a bit quicker since they all share common colours.
It was nice to take a break from them though and build something different like this Panther
I'm also going to start my massive Schwerer Gustav diorama at some stage in the spring... I've got a busy year ahead of me for sure
