Zvezda " Art of Tactic", 1:100, update

Yesterday I primecoated these tanks and built them. Took about 10 Minutes and they fit well. No glue was nessecary. Only at the Panzer III some rework will be needed because the front part of the hull won´t snap into the right position. I like these kits but it willbe a challenge to paint them. In the second picture you can see three Roskopf-Tanks I bought two weeks ago. They are in the same scale and I think that´s right. And here the Minis with their great brothers: A Panzer III from Italeri (1:72), a T 34 from Matchbox (1:76) and a Panzer II from Revell/Matchbox (1:76).

Welcome Samy! Du hier? Ich freue mich!!!

Bedford, Airfix, 1:76, Update

An update: Glued this, painted that...Please take a look by yourself.
I think only 8 to 10 parts left and then the painting will be done. The sections aren´t glued because it is easier to paint it.

Welcome to BigLee and Surfus_Maximus. I wish you interesting posts in this blog!

Zvezda, Art of Tactic, T 34, Panzer II & III, 1:100

Nothing spectacular today, just a few new kits. They are from Zvezda´s "Art of Tactic" game and I bought them because I collect the 1:100 scale and want to make a comparison with my Roskopf-Modells.

First of all a T 34

A Panzer II.

A Panzer III

A russian Truck, I don´t know the type.

Last but not least the good old Opel Blitz Truck.

Feuerbart vs. Mork, Gamereport last part

My buisness travel is over. I hate to work on weekends :-(
But a promised, the last part of the Game report:
Turn 6: The Sherman was destroyed. A colaboration between Panther and Panzerschreck.

Turn 7: My Infantry (on top of the picture) tries to reach the second marker. Feuerbarts infantry ges into position. My Panzer III gets two hits and is now unmoveable. The Sherman in the middle is destroyed.
Turn 8: Infantry-battles at all ends of the map. My troop on the right was wiped out. The left wing was able to capture the second landmark.
The game nearly ended. My left infantry unit was destroyed. At this point my Panzer IV was the only heavy unit on the gameboard. Feuerbart attacked with "Haftladungen" anbd the tank gets one hit.
The End: We decided, that this was a draw. Feuerbart hold three of four landmarks, but he had only a few infantryunits and two jeeps left. I got the Panzer IV, the Kübelwagen, the PaK and one Heavy Mortar unit, wich was completely.
A nice game, a great opponent and a lot of fun!

Feuerbart vs. Mork, Behind Omaha, 600 Points

Today I want to start with the game report. I will do this in two or three parts, because I made a load of pictures and I have no time for a full report in one turn.
Both sides got 600 points. The aim was to get all four landmarks or destroy all enemy units.

First you can see the line-up of Feuerbart: 3 Shermans, one Truck, one M 20, one ATG, two Jeeps and the rest is infantry.

My line-up: One Panzer III, one Panzer IV, One Panzer V Panther, one StuG III, one Kübelwagen, One ATG, one Sd.Kfz. 222 and 4 infantry units, one with heavy mortars.

The first move, units went forward and tried to reach one of the four landmarks.

In the second turn, each one reached the first landmark. I made a lucky punch on the GMC. It stood behind the two houses, but my StuG III could reach it because there was a little gap. A hit into the side and the truck exploded, took a few infantry units with it.

In the next turn I was abel to destroy the M 20. Feuerbarts Infantry and one Jeep secured the Landmark at the church, the rest tried to reach the forrest.
On the left flank my Panther was in heavy combat with two Shermans and got a hit. The Sd. Kfz. 222 tried to escape but got one hit as well. My ATG hits the Sherman down the road. Here I made a big mistake. I turned the turret of the Panther instead of moving the tank. So the Sherman was able to hit it in the side armour.

Next Turn:
The StuG III was destroyed as well as the Sd. Kfz.222. On the right flank, my infantry reached the first landmark.

To be continued....

JS-2 Stalin, Italeri, Update 2

I continued my work on the JS-2. I used "Revell Plasto" to fill the gaps between the turret and the gun and edged it with sand paper. I think it is o.k. Then I painted the rest of the tank, the tracks and road wheels. At the end I started with a wash.

The results so far:
Before the wash:

I think that the result is o.k. It doesn`t look like an AA-Tank no more!
