The elefant looks great. wondering how you plan on dealing with the tracks that are too long? I tried once with those tracks ,but messed it up and had to replace them.

Finally got some serious work done on mine. Parts from a Tamiya Universal Carrier, Vulcan 2 Pounder ATG, and (eventually) MK tracks.

Hello friends:

Here are more pics. For the initial camuflage I mixed XF-64 + X-26 + XF-7. I made some light and heavy strips. I will add the khaki color

Thanks friend. Here are more pics!.

Marks and Cross were applied with airbrush. Irregular numbers hand-painted (as the crews in the original armors).

I cut 2 links of the tracks in order to adjust. First step on the tracks were painted with black of Vallejo and dry brush with flat aluminium of Tamiya. Now I will start the small details and weathering.









Regards,
Rodolfo

I finally worked my way free of other projects and got back on the Jagdpanther. Here is a picture of the assembled body, primered, with vision blocks masked and the weld lines inked for some pre-shading. It's ready for a base coat of Tamiya XF-60 dark yellow (hopefully in a day or two).

Well the T-72A project is finally finished, and I can move onto the JagdPanzer Kanone.

This will be fun, I need to assemble the lower hull and then assemble the resin tracks first.

Cheers

Here is in-progress photo #2 of the 1/35 Italeri Panzerjager I with 4.7 cm PAK that I am building for this campaign.



I have the base coat applied and the majority of the detail painting completed. I hope to get the interior painted and detailed this coming week. I also hope to get the gun detailed this coming week as well.

So if all goes well I should have another in-progress photo to show soon.

Thanks,

HARV

Here are more pics!

I applied a general wash with Matt Brown Yellow mixed with Thinner enamel both of Humbrol, in order to " kills" the brightness.

For the earth, I applied with brush PVC PIMEX acetate glue the fine powder of marble.

Great paintjob, Martin. I especially like the subtle chipping in the gun compartment. It looks great.

Rodolfo, very nice progress on your Elelfant. The "blending in" of the camouflage looks good.

Looking forward to see more

Nearly finished modifying the suspension


The MK tracks include a set of sprockets, however the Australian Local Pattern carriers use a different sprocket hub to their UK cousins


Installed the exhaust system


and the hydraulic ram for the gun
