I made some correction on the sitting and standing figures. The panther got the antenne and the ventillation shutters have been reworked.

Now the painting really comes :D

DKW-350 with a German postilion

   Dear Visitors,

We have been making small vignette with my friend Béla for a few months.

My task was the building and the painting of the motorbike. Béla will making and painting a figure from The Body in next mounths.
I have built the motorbike from Tamiya for that I have used Aber photoechted parts.
After assembling the motor's main parts it had to be filled and polished on a few joining  points. The next step was the attaching of several pars of the upgrade kit. I haven't used the spokes, only the nave of those.
 I replaced the spoks with thin wires. The spoke of upgrde kit didn't go into the rim of the wheels, unless I rub off the convex part of  the rim. But this wouldn't be realistic. I cut out the nave and chain protector from the plastic rear wheel's rack and I replacedwith thin metal sheet. I deepened the connection of the mudguard and the tire with tapering scalpel. The rear seat rack was a plastic block. I milled it out by original pictures, so the mudguard and the rack are differentiate from together.

I use Gunze acrylic colors for painting after Tamyia black priming. I mixed the yellow's right tone by using Sandy and Dark Yellow. I washed up the surface  with VanDyck Brown. I let the motorbike to dry for a long time , after this I made wearing and rusty spotting. The next phase was the fixing of the decales. After t I made the weathering (muddy marks etc.), for this I used light and dark pigments with enamel. Following this I had been waiting for a week to let the enamel dry. And finally I have painted a thin layer of flat varnish with airbrush.


Thanks for your lookings !

Panther Radio Operator

The next member of the crew is the radio operator. This is a Tamiya figure (i use it two times, cause i love this pose), with Alpine head, Dragon PE, and converted arms, and an self sculpted glove. He got a cigarette into his left hand. This kind of cigarette holding is tipical in winter time ;)

And all of them...

But, what the hell are they watching...?

Panther Driver

Here is the driver figure. It's from the Warriors WA35481 set. I changed the head for Hornet one. The legs came from Miniart 35021, with some converting, cause i have to fit into the hatch.

The radio operator is on the bench...

Last weeks I've started to make the crew for my Panther G. First of all the commander got his place. I choose him from the Alpine range, i changed his head cause of the idea of the vignette. I bought no.35132 set, but at this moment i cant decide , will i use the other figure, or not ... its so nice!?

Next time i will introduce the driver...

Fw-190 F8

Hi fellow modellers!

My next project is not a tank or vehicle, as you can see it's a Fw-190 F8 from Tamiya in 1:48 scale. Almost OOTB, i just use a KP Tinyland Cockpit Set and HAD decals.

Here you can read about the "Black 2", which fought over Hungary in 1945!

To build the model was so easy, i just relized only one problem with the engine deck.
The paintwork will be so simple, i plan to make the standard camo RLM74/75/76...with whitewash.

Last days i put on the decals and the plain has get the flat clear.

BIWA Panther - revision

After consulting expert modellers, I had to make some update on the Panther. The most important changes are the spare tracks on the turret. I leave the guide horns, just on the top ones made some cheat, for the correct position. The right air intake got the blinds, and i drop on some schürzen.
Thanks again the help, lads!

BIWA Panther - building done!

Here is my latest work, a BIWA Panther G late, which was belong to the I./Pz.Rgt. 24, during the battles in February 1945, in Hungary. I have to say thanks to Péter Barnaky and Gergő Szaszkó for the informations.
I got the inspiration to make this model from Canfora's Panther book. Gunnar Jansson's panther was the master of mine, so a big thanks goes to him, and to Roger Hurkmans for his help.
The model is the old Tamiya late Panther G, upgraded with Voyager PEs, Aber's barrel w muzzle brake, Friul tracks, Dragon Bosch light and some home-made things (special thanks to Aron for the exhausts and to Demir Ali for the periscopes). 
I plan to make a little vignetta with some figures, but the time will show :)

Please welcome the photos, 
Cheers, Laszlo
