5,5 inch cannon, Airfix, 1:76 & Italeri German PaK Crew

I know that you know that I know that this Crew doesn`t fit to the Gun ;-)

But nevertheless I put them togehther, because I´ve got no british gun crew at the moment and I finished this Gun yesterday.And a picture without Crew is so empty. I also reworked the PaK Crew and would call them "finished", too.

Plane crashed near my village...

Yesterday an accident happend in my village. Only 400 metres from my house a plane crshed into the ground and exploded. The pilot was killed because the Piper expolded and burned down. I´ve never seen something like this and I hope that I will never see it again. I live near to the oldest airport in Germany (called Hangelar and was open about 100 years ago.) and the pilot tried to reach it. But he crashed into a tree on a field. My son likes to play soccer on this field but he was at home. God bless! Fortunately the plane missed the houses and there weren`t no more casualties.
Firefighters were on the scene immediately, also the Police. About 20 fire engines Came to the scene. Because of roumors that a co-pilot was missing, a police helicopter and a squad with tracker dogs were also called to the field. But it was a fake message, so the pilot was the only victim.
A horrible experience!

Here you can see, it was damn narrow to our stret.

At the evening the police protected the wreck.

Caesar. U.S. Infantry, 1:72

Today just a small update. I´ve got a bad cold and it´s difficult to paint when shaking and coughing all the time.

Have a nice weekend, whereever you are!

Italeri, German Pak Crew, 1:72

Inspired by a tutorial by Wiking (Wiking Paintworks) in the Behind-Omaha Forum I tried to paint these figures with a "Splintertarnung". My problem was I needed a very fine brush wich I hadn`t at home. But I tried it nevertheless. The result is o.k. for me, but the "Rain-Stripes" are too big. That was the best I could do. Next time I will try a toothpick for finer lines.

And welcome to CPBelt & jacksarge! Nice to have you here!

Armourfast, Sherman M4 A3, 75mm, 1:72

I nearly finished this Sherman. Yesterday I painted the road wheels, the tracks and highlighted the edges. I think it will become a last layer of matt varnish and I decided to put dirt/mud on these horrible tracks. But nevertheless it´s ready for action. The little groeund-plate was started some time ago. I used the bristles of a brush to start a corn field and I have to go on here. Then some grass flocks will follow and a finish of the painting. The good thing is that winter is coming, my favorite time for our hobby ;-)

Pegasus, Waffen XX Set 2, 1:72

After weeks of missing my favorite hobby I managed to go on with these figures. They´re nearly finished. A drop of ogryn flesh is missing on one figure and because they´re to glossy they need a layer of matt varnish. I also finished two U.S. Infantrymen. And I hope to complete the painting of a Sherman tonight.

It feels good to be back in buisness ;-)

I´m not dead....

Dear friends of wargaming and modelling!
I want to tell you that I´m still alive. But the workload in my job doesn´t allow to build modells, paint figures or post any new stuff in this blog. I hope that in the next weeks the situation will uncock. Until then I beg you pardon and I hope you will follow this blog again when new stuff is available.

See you and best wishes!

Inspiration Modellbau, Mainz, 17. + 18. September

Last weekend I was in Mainz at "Inspiration Modellbau". A nice event with a lot of nice Modells, a lot of possibilities to spend money for new kits and a small part with wargaming. Mojo from the B.O. Forum built a gameboard so we were abele to present the "Behind Omaha" Game to the audience. I was there on Sunday, met some of the B.O Forum-Members for the first time, was able to play a short match (I lost, as usual), made about 100 Pictures of beautiful modells and figures and spend a lot of money. This week I will show you a few pictures of the event. I want to start with the B.O. Game.

This is the beautiful gameboard. Congrats, Mojo, well done!

This is my unsuccsesful try to stop....

these U.S. Forces

Another nice game!

And welcome to Luca Tempesta! Have fun!

Russian Infantry (Winter)

I want to add these figures to my "Behind Omaha" Forces, as there will be a List with russian stuff for this game. The figures were painted during the last two years and now I started putting them on bases.

I want to make two different units, one for summer and one for winter. This is part one: "Winter"

M 10 "Wolverine", Armourfast, 1:72

Another fast assembly kit I´m working on. I made a stupid mistake with this one. I applicated the decals and forgot to cover them with glossy colour ( I´m getting old :-(. This time I used a wash with diluted oil colours and the thinner destroyed the decal on the right and damaged the one of the left turret side. Unfortunately I had only one in my spare box... Next steps will be a highlight of the edges, painting the tracks and a second wash. The figures are from SHQ, I thin they fit in well.
