Wow, that's really cool TT! How do you simulate the rust and burnt metal? That tree stump is also great.
Just added some sand texture that Vallejo do, then painted it with black, green, white, and a couple of orange brown shades with a brush, the stump I made with magic sculpt and painted it
Nice flowers Thor :-) !Seriously though , a local hobby shop is selling Revell(Ex Matchbox) german 'assault guns' / 'tank destroyers' at half price .I know these have a very mixed reputation some being great others terrible.As far as I know there's a JagdPANTHER , a JagdPanzer IV / L70 and maybe some Stug/s ...i know youve made at least some of these ,got any opinions/advice about which are good?
Depends. If you're talking about 1/72 scale kits then most are Revell's own development (although Revell StuGs are all bad kits, Dragon is much better) but if you're talking about 1/76 scale kits (which come with a base) then those are the old Matchbox kits from the 1970s and 80s. Of course these aren't up to nowadays' specs but they have their fans for being classics.
Very cool stuff indeed, chaps!

WIP lot of filling and sanding as the fit was not the best but it is an old monogram but not the worst ive had to work with , just got some seat harness`s for it off e-bay.
I have been thinking about this for a while, it is from scratch. I did a bit of research on the design of the catapult used on the ship, looked at some of the pictures of the wreck. I worked out the dimensions as best I could by comparing know objects in the pictures. Then made a simple plan in Turbocad, the construction is fairly simple, its made up from "L" section plastic beams cut to the appropriate lengths. It not 100% accurate, but close enoughwhiteladder long time no see , is that all scratch built , an interesting idea for displaying the arado.
