Thanks Adam! :D

I will use the tracks that come with the kit.
They are... nice... nothing special, but there are only so many 38cm single link tracks.
Also: the details are very good, so why not use them. ;) And while it would be nice to have them moveable it's not exactly much of a problem. ;)

I threw a lot of "stuff" (professional word for random stowage! :lol: ) on the tank, there will be some more, eventually it will be fairly fully loaded... after all it's a 1938 model Panzer IV that managed to get caught up in the apocalyptic battles of Barbarossa ;) .

Very nice Raoul. :) Looks suitably cluttered and ready for the vast expanse of the Russian steppes. ;)

Morning Raoul

Getting some bench time on this and the 14-18 build too ;)

Slightly better than all the Pz I's II's and 35&8t's that went to Russia!

Have a great Tuesday.

Regards

So, after long last I'm effectively back... really! :oops:

I even worked again on this here kit!
I threw even more stowage on it... because Barbarossa :lol: !
Oh and I rearranged some of the tools as was occasionally done to free up space on the fenders.

As evident here there's still going to be more painting as well as additional pieces, I'm thinking about a coil of wire? and maybe some additional jerry cans if I can find a place to store them. Any suggestions for more stowage are welcome ;) .

And here's a photo of my modelling table with me thinking about the '14-'18 diorama... with support rendered by lowland scotch contained in Italian crystal glass and joined by stainless steel "cooling cubes"... :? :oops:

I subsequently decided to continue with the IVB... :lol: :oops:

Wow... November... that's... a long time for no movement at all...I'm very sorry... I had a... let's say quite blue phase with no time whatsoever to begin with and the result was a near complete cessation of any even remotely meaningful activity here... :oops:

Anyhow, I made some very minor progress with the IVB (and also started the StuG 0, but this will be another thread...) =>

(I'm also moving images and switching to a new platform for photos... I know I'm like.. oh.. couple of years? late for this but here we go.. so if anything vanishes send me a PM or something ;) )

Good to see you are back Raoul. I've missed your contributions around here. :)
Slow progress is still classed as progress in my book so keep at it. ;)

Cheers,
Vincent

Morning Raoul

Nice Pz IV B, and like Vincent says all movement is progress.

Looks cluttered and very chaotic, nice.

Still munching through Easter chocolate, Thanks

On Holiday in a week so hopefully full updates on all my projects

Good to hear you are turning a corner

Best regards
