Re: Tiger build

Mark, That coupola is looking every bit as good as Vince's - better actually! Superb workmanship. I'm toying with making the bin for my Tiger 1 as well but thought brass may be better. Following with interest. Great thread,

Gunter,
Just beautiful model all around. Came out perfect as one would expect. The 3D printed texture on the turret looks good for the rough steel look. Excellent!

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

Phil trying printing vertically. Should be ok, no overhangs to speak of. Perhaps less woodgrain effect.

Re: Marder tracks

Sadly heard that Martin Schneider, owner of Das Giesswerk passed away in October 2019. Really sad, his tracks were top notch. Not sure if his parts are still available - although website is still up. The parts he made for me were cast to order, ie no inventory on hand.

Re: sdkfz 164 Nashorn

This will be a great project. Following along as well.

Rhino/Nashorn is favorite of mine too!

Gunter Gabelein used to make really nice idler wheel casting for PZ4. Not sure if you need that part or if he still makes those?

Re: Swiss Bailey Bridge

Awesome Bridge! You can leave it outside for some natural weathering! I like the paint color! Now you just need a tank to drive over it!

Re: Visual makeover for 'Gunther'

Hi Marco, I'm enjoying your makeover. One thing on German tanks is the base coat was red oxide primer. So try the chipping effect with a small dot of red oxide then add smaller dot of steel colors. If the paint chipped it would expose a little red oxide under the dunkelgelb. All in all your jack tur...

Re: Scale cupola

Mark I had one many moons ago. It was a beautiful work of art, as was all of Vince's parts. But long since sold. I think even back then, they sold for $500 or so. I was hoping I still had a photo of it, but cant find that even. Good luck in your quest.

Re: Visual makeover for 'Gunther'

Nice makeover Marco. I like your redone turret much better. The washes and cast texture are really nice. Someone put some time into those weld lines- they are excellent. I agree those dots are just too perfect and distracting!
Best regards,
Bob
