Quite old Dragon’s model. Building was easy, as usual. Painting took me a while.
Mostly because I started it during summer, when even using retarder for my acrylics didn’t fix the issue of way too fast drying. Later I couldn’t get back to it, I wasn’t doing the right progress. But I managed to finish it.
This figure is for my dad, he loves it.
Unfortunately, all decals just crumbled once I tried to use them. No matter, if I used water, of decal liquid. So forgive me last-minute painting labels on Panzerfaust.
As usual, this is painted with acrylics (Army Painter). Snow is made of PVA glue mixed with white paint. And some white soft pastel dust. I used quite a lot of pastels for weathering.
Tamiya’s WWII German Machine Gunner (greatcoat) in 1/16 scale.
Figure is hand-painted, using Vallejo’s acrylics, Mr. Metal Color (stainless steel) and chalk pastels were used to achieve weathering effects.
Thanks to my Boyfriend, I can show you those amazing shots.
I’m building this one for my Father. We’ve seen this model few years back, but never had an opportunity to get it. Recently I’ve got it and made a surprise for my Dad. Now I only have to paint it. It’s Tamiya’s model and as you can imagine – it’s really well done, I didn’t have much work to do while assembling.
Here’s first part of WIP, where I start to work on gun, coat and I did base for this figure.
