Finally got the move on the Fallschirmjager vignette today with the groundwork.


I will probably finish this piece according to the painting suggestions from this wonderful book. With a black undercoat that is!


I guess the main reason for a box art on Alpine figures is so that modellers will start posing Taesung's figures like that :P


Made the trip down to Bernard's shop on Wednesday to snap some photos of Dinesh's Pacific Sherman and John Tham's petite little Hotchkiss tank...

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 

....and forgetting some Kweh Pie Tee.

Final Touches

_
Phew.....Finally placed the finishing touches to the LSSAH Taganrog figure and moving on to the Fallschirmjäger Panzerschreck Vignette.


 
 
 
 
 
 
 

On a lighter note, here's a picture of my Friday night's supper down town. Yes....Bak Chor Mee (mince meat noodles).

Some new pics...


Here are some new pictures of the pair of Recon Sturmartillerie figures from Alpine Miniatures I did a while back for the official box art. Some newer additions include the carrying and fastening strap on the Unterscharführer's bino and a pair of goggles for the Sturmann.

Slow and Steady....

Hi Folks,

progress on this project finally picked up a little yesterday with most of the little details painted. The helmet cover still remains largely incomplete especially towards the back. I've also stumbled upon a new technique(at least for myself) to create the SS runes after encountering so many problems in the past trying to adhere photo-etched ones to uneven collars.









cheers,

Calvin

Tunic and trousers

_
Moving on to apply the base coat for the tunic and trousers. It's pretty smooth sailing from here on... all except maybe the belt of ammo around the MG-34.

More work done


A little more work done on the smock after a four day break. Only the sleeves remain to rendered before I proceed on to the rest of the figure.


Cheers,

Today's Progress


Today's progress on the Palm Trees and Clumps pattern smock. Hmmmm... why do I keep forgetting to get rid of that red spot on his lip?
