1/35 Tamiya Scale Model

This is the first diorama I made in 2012, my computer was broken just before I wanna make the video, I finally upload the video yesterday and I hope you will like it.

These are classic kits of Tamiya, although I wanna buy them since I was a kid, this is the first time I build them.

P-51D Mustang, Burma 1945.

By Francis Lee

1/48 Otaki / Arii Scale Model

This is the second plane I select to repaint, I built it 3 years ago and last week I mainly did the overall weathering, I masked the surfaces into small areas and applied darker/ lighter weathering. I found silver paint is easy to get dull (especally acrylic paint) , so I took these photos right the way.

The diorama shows a Panther Ausführung G tank in Northern France 1944. The Panther is supported by some Panzergrenadiers. I used Dragon´s Zimmerit Panther G (Kit NO.6384), the figures are made out of several left over bits i found in my storage. The rails are from Trumpeter. I painted the model with acrylic paints from Revell. MIG pigments and oil paints were used for weathering.

Meng Model Pickup Truck

by Kasper Fischer

Warfare in Scale is a Spanish production company, whom specializes in modelling videos. They are new to the profession but the videos look very professional. Elegant layout/design and excellent editing. The videos are in Spanish but, unlike Japanese Plamo Tsukurou, WiS have English subtitles.  They may need to improve their story telling to become as popular but the Warfare in Scale show is still very entertainer.

This episode is about the new 1/35 Technical from Meng Model. I don't know the modeler's name because WiS forgot to mention it in the video but he really makes a fantastic job of the little pickup truck. Anyway, it's a great show. Enjoy fellows.

Cyber-hobby StuG III C/D

by Aaron Weidenkeller

I finished this tank from Cyberhobby last week. It shows a StuG III (Sturmgeschütz) C/D with a 7.5cm L48. First I painted a normal camouflage than I sprayed a light coat of white. For the weathering I used this time MIG Dark Wash and some pigments. It was the first time that I used this stuff from MIG production and I'm satisfied.
