Nice and clean build, your Wespe. Will you use friuls?

The figures are an excellent choice. You will bring in the cold weather again.

Congratulations on a very clean scratch building Noel. Did you make the clamps for the wires or are they PE?

They are made from lead foil. I like to use lead foil... it bends nicely.

I got tired after a while....but I still need to add some stuff...like pin washes and see what needs to be done...

Nice work Noel.

The preshading and highlights add dimension to the model from the very beginning. And your scratches and detailing enhance the weathering very well. Don't forget to put some metal in the latches of the boxes because they look too new.

Ruben

Thanks, Ruben! That was not on the list and I agree with you.... I'll take care of them!

The wash I applied is one developed by Verlinden........ at least I think it was, cos that's where I got it from! It consists of a heavy wash and dabbing it with a tissue paper (Verlinden said with a "lint-free cloth").

Wash aplied



Removing by dubbing action


Result


Top lateral sides and box tops have a wash applied. The floor has no wash


Sprockets on the left have a wash the ones on the right have no wash

It is similar to the way that Bob Letterman uses washes , It is a filter & wash in one Very Happy .

Hi Noel,

In the SBS you said you didn't apply a wash to the floor, are you going to do that? And if not what is the reason?

Looking good!

Erik

No, Erik..... I didn't explain myself well....sorry. I left the floor without a wash to show the difference between washed panels and not! Very Happy

Here is the washed floor! I'll probably attend to it more ...maybe apply a wash of Yellow Ochre+White oil paint....still thinking:scratch:


and the right side with MG fitted. The MP40 is of the kit.... don't like it...no crisp detail
