This is the list of what I’m working on at the present
Italeri Soft Cab WW2 German SWS 5 ton half-track, with 37mm, flak gun mounted in the back.
I have just finished base coating the colour on Thursday 7th May along with the tracks, cargo is being sourced from the kit as well as Tamiya and Academy sets.
Dragon Porsche Tiger Bergpanzer recovery vehicle
As used by the 653 Tank Destroyer Battallion (TBD). This has been mostly assembled for a while but again not painted. It now has a base dark yellow coat on it and the Fruil metal tracks assembled and painted, just the final patches of green & brown to add to complete.
Dragon Porsche Tiger, one of 3 actually completed with a production Tiger 1 turret fitted and used by 653 TBD as a command vehicle.
This is now also painted base colour along with the tracks painted as well just the other colours to put on over the next few days.
Do you see a theme starting here, as I already have the Ferdinand and Elefant completed from the same unit.
Trumpeter Russian SU152 late.
This is one of a batch of 3 KV1 based kits picked up a short while ago. I have just about got the thing into final assembly and have painted most of the parts until I ran out of paint. I intend ordering a batch of paints this week to complete the colouring of the beast - mostly a dark green late war finish.
Tamiya WW2 German Marder 3 M.
Based on the 38t chassis with a 75mm Pak 40 anti-tank gun fitted, this one has been on the go for quite some time and I managed to paint it base coat dark yellow yesterday 7/5/20.
This also now needs final assembly and the other colours added to finish it as the 352 Panzerjager Battallion 352 infantry division, Normandy Summer 1944.
Takom Taiwanese CM11(M48H).
This is a real oddball rebuild using obsolete and redundant M60 A3 hulls with M48 turret fitted with a 105mm gun from an early Abrams tank. This kit has been rather nice in general assembly and mostly everything fits well. the only thing that is giving grief is the turret basket which is in 5 plastic parts and 3 etch parts. The kit is roughly base coated with the forest green colour but I have to get one of the others in to finish the 3 tone camouflage pattern.
Ah well upwards and onwards as they say.
I also have finished painting 2 WW2 German 38t light tanks and an early Tiger 1 all in grey.
So the saga continues.
I will try to get some Chinese modern vehicles completed soon as well.
Hope everyone is staying well and safe.
