Finally, after forty-eight years !
I got my first plastic kit, a Frog DH.88 Comet for my 7th birthday… I’m 55 now and have been building ever since.
In those intervening years I have tried every aspect of modelling, mostly aircraft, but had a go at every other genre. That said (and I cannot prove it to you), in all those years I have started many German WWII armour kits but until last night I had never, NEVER finished one.
This is Tamiya’s lovely wee Marder III Ausf. M from 2007 built entirely from the box, painted with Tamiya acrylics and weathered down with home-brewed filters & washes and Mig pigments. Nothing too much more to say just over two weeks from opening the box which is virtually unheard of for me, and just goes to prove how vice-free a contemporary kit can be even for those of us cursed with sausage fingers and middle-age !
Please feel free to ask any questions, or make any comment / criticism. Can’t be sure what’s next, depends what shouts loudest from the depths of the stash. Have a great weekend, all.
