Some Finished Projects over the last Month

Hello again,

 

I just wanted to share some of my finished projects that I did in the little free time I’ve had this past month while working on my finals for grad school.  Even though I was away from the blog, I still managed to put out a few finished pieces; mostly to beef-up my German Artillery/Anti-tank.  I will start by showing my finished nebelwerfers from S Models:

These are great models, as they come with 2 rocket launchers.  Unfortunately they do not include crew, so I shot them with spotters from the PSC PAK 38 set.  I intend on converting some German Infantry to serve as loaders, although I reckon that the rockets these came with are not historically accurate.  Oh well… I am not a rivet counter and will enjoy the kit’s supplied ordinance anyway.

 

Next up is my Roden Panzerwerfer.  Also a nicely detailed set, but is was a pain in the you know what to assemble with many fiddly parts and a very delicate drive/track assembly.  I think this will be enough of a ‘werfer battery for my taste.

In the background is a pegasus Ukrainian pre-painted house #1.  I think it will make a nice addition to my eastern front scenery, as I start to build up this collection.  I am nearly done with a pair of houses that are designed to look like this one.  They are built from foamboard and card with airdry clay to simulate the thatched roof texture.  I will post pics when they are complete!

 

Next up are the last two Wespes painted up for the eastern front.  I have already completed two Wespes to serve in my Western Europe campaigns as panzer-lehr vehicles.  These two are the same ACE kits I purchased around valentines day from ModelsUA.com in the Ukraine.  A fine addition I must say.

The first bears the insignia of the Wiking Division or 5th SS Panzer Division.  The Second Tank has the Grossdeutschland helmet-shaped insignia.  I have a penchant for open-topped self-propelled guns.  They are fun models to build and are nice to look at with interchanging crews to suite the forces you’d like to deploy.

 

And Finally I will do a quick run through of the PSC PAK 38 and Crews along with a pair of PAK 40s from Italeri that i re-painted.

here is an Italeri PAK 40 being serviced by a Waffen SS crew from PSC.  The camo is supposed to be spring/summer Oakleaf

these PSC sets are worth buying for the crews alone! In one Set you get 24 gun crew with both 50mm ammo and 75mm ammo, a great value for around 18 bucks if you ask me!
