I have painted some of them myself, and I really like to have a look at your work. Your favorite is also mine. I have painted this old Matchbox kit also for the Desert War.

Thank you very much :) I'll try to be more active, and now that I've figured out a way to properly take photos of my stuff, I'm a tad more motivated to document my progress.

All very nice with authentic weathered appearance. I really like the winter half tracks and the chipped paint on the Pz II. The stuart looks like it's ready to burst out of the screen. :yeah:

Another Armourfast model, this time it's a StuH 42 I got from a big lot bought in February.

I only spent a few hours with it, but I think it turned out nicely.

Very cool tank destroyer. What you accomplished in just a few hours with this model would probably have taken me months or even years.

I find the whole concept of the tank destroyer to be fascinating. Why not just use a tank? So I read a lot about them. It seems to me that all the major powers were figuring out armored warfare as the went along during WWII.

Thank you Bluefalchion :) Believe it, it took me years to figure out how I could do this, but the airbrush helped a lot.
