What a Tanker! Weekend cont...


I've now washed the tanks I built yesterday in a mixture of Future, Agrax Earthshade, Gryphon Sepia and Black Indian Ink. They are looking much better than I thought they would, to be honest, so I'm quite pleased with the progress thus far. They need to properly dry off but the weather is with me for a change, so that shouldn't take too long. Next, I'll do a dry brush in Russian Green / Yellow Ochre, a combination that worked really well on the Russian tanks that this chap has been painting:


I've also started building the rest of the tank force including another Sherman 76mm, a Sherman 75mm and two more Il-2's, which should round out the late war tank options until I can get some T34's. I have ordered some T34/76mm already, along with a couple of Panther G's and two detailing sets from Armourfast. These are produced by Early War Miniatures and look great for adding stowage, crew and the odd missing bits from the Armourfast models.

I also think I have a box of Jagdpanthers in the loft somewhere????
