One StuG Finished...?
To start, let me say that I'm reasonably content with this paintjob. It could work as is, but I'm thinking that more needs to be done. I'm going to start with a light/thin overspray of buff or some color like that, to dull it down a bit and make it a bit more dusty. The tracks need that as well. Nick, what would you do from this point to get it looking fantastic? Opinions and suggestions are more than welcome, and in fact encouraged folks. I AM going to figure out 15mm vehicles in this lifetime!
Last night I also put together all my Command Panzerfaust teams, and built a couple of Rifle/MG teams as well. Tonight I'll bulk up the bases on all of them with Apoxie Sculpt, and hopefully get to painting them this weekend.
In other news, I stumbled across this excellent scratch build at Ricalopia. It's an Imperial "Charon" Pattern ambulance. Check it out:
There are more pics at his blog. Once my FJs are done, I'm really looking forward to doing my own interpretation of a Flesh Tearers Stormraven. I've never done something I'd consider a genuine scratch build, and seeing stuff like the ambulance from Ricalopia or Blood Pact conversions done by Dave Taylor really gets my hobby juices pumping.
For those coming to Hobby Night, I'll see you this evening. If you can't make it this time around, have a great weekend...
