    Amazing work. Thanks for the woodwork tips. I have a couple projects that I know they will be a huge help on. Jeff

    Enjoying the build immensely. There can never be enough Thunderbolts on this forum. Congrats on winning the raffle as well if I have the right guy. Jeff

    Coming along really great. I also appreciate your work proof-reading the instructions as I may join later in the year with a 110 as well. Jeff

    +1 On that question. Beautiful work. Jeff
  7. Thanks guys. Well I'm calling it done. Managed to just barely get a 2nd project wrapped up this year. Finished up the weathering to the Staghound to where I'm happy with it. I also played abound with the base a little and added some sitting/stagnant water with Vallejo still water. It works ok for small puddles, but if I had to do it again I'd probably take a stab at using a clear resin. The fingerprints on the black parts of the base I didn't notice till after my photos, but they're cleaned up now. Thanks for all the kind words and motivation during the build. Jeff
  8. Fantastic work! Been following along and it makes me want to start my 110. Jeff
  9. Still a ways to go but making some progress. I feel like I'm about 90% of the way there. I'm not the best figure painter and the pixie suit is a pain, but I can live with these two. As I'm modelling a Canadian vehicle, I'm pretty happy that this guy looks a bit like Gordie Howe to me. I didn't try to copy the scene entirely, mostly because I failed to make convincing mature trees. But this pic in Holland '44 was the inspiration for the base. And finally where things stand. Knowing my glacial speed I might not have another update till after Christmas. So thanks for looking and happy holidays. Cheers Jeff
  10. Hello again. Finished up my first round of weathering on the Staghound. I used Vallejo black brown for the chipping as well as some coloured pencils. The dust effects like the Kubel is Ammo enamel effects and the dried mud is Vallejo's coloured pumice stuff, dark earth I think. I also added a couple mortar boxes which were sometimes welded onto the real vehicle as additional stowage. Also got a start on some of the stowage I plan to stick in the side stowage bins. Next up some more stowage and a start on my figures. Thanks for looking. Jeff
  11. Sheesh. So it's been about a month without updates. I'm enjoying the armour build, but I'm itching to get back to something with wings. I've been able to finish up the Kubelwagen portion of the diorama. It's out of the box except for the Archer Transfer instrument cluster decal and some lead foil on the convertible top. I used Ammo of Mig's dunkelgelb for the base and Tamiya's olive green and red brown for the camo work. The weathering is mostly Ammo's enamel weathering effects with pigments in a couple places. I've been trying to figure out something to put in the rear seat of the Kubel for the trooper to be inspecting and landed on a "Monuments Men" idea. So on to the pictures. I also have the Staghound ready for a little chipping and further detail painting before it gets weathered. Thanks for looking. Jeff
  12. Been a while, sorry for not updating. Managed to get the Staghound's base-coat & decals down. Landed on markings for the XII Manitoba Dragoons, for no other reason then my Grandpa lived in Winnipeg for a time after the war. Tried a little colour modulation working from mixing yellows with Tamiya JSDF olive drab. It annoyingly sort of disappeared under the clear coat. Maybe it'll return after the matte coat and further weathering. I also got the Kubelwagen's interior painted and the body assembled so it can hit the spray booth soon. I'm trying out Ammo of Mig's interpretation of dunklegelb. I like the colour out of the jar, I like I can brush paint to touch up, but I just don't like how it sprays. Decided instead of modeling a dirt/muddy road I'd take a crack at a brick road like I saw in a period photo in Belgium. Finally I'm waiting on some Value Gear stuff to show up so I can add some stowage, but it's taking forever to arrive. Are any other Canadians suddenly having issues with Canada Post really dragging their feet on international shipments? I was able to start painting some stuff from the spares bin. I'm still keeping the earlier figure in the turret from the earlier post, I've just decided to add a 2nd gent to add a little interest. Thanks for looking. Jeff
  13. Thanks. I initially tried to solder it but, it wasn't the neatest finish. So I attached the steel mesh to the brass with thin super glue. It feels like it's a sturdy enough solution. Jeff
  14. Hello again. I have the Staghound about ready for the paint booth. Had to make a little stand for it out of basswood because I'm sure I'll break off a tow shackle or sway bar if I leave it on it's belly before the wheels go on. Decided to have a go at building a small base for it. I'm adding a Tamiya Kubelwagen and plan on modelling it as abandoned on the side of the road in the Netherlands. It goes without saying that the Kubel is a nice little kit, but I wish the wooden floorboards were separate from the floor like they are on the Schwimmwagen kit to facilitate easier painting. Besides giving some scale for how much of a 500lb gorilla the Staghound is, the Kubel will also give me a cheap kit to practice a little muddy weathering on before having a go at the main event. I've been wanting to take a shot at building a small wire tree for a while now and thought why not? I looked easy enough to do in the model railroad magazines at my father-in-laws place. Twist and solder some copper wire, epoxy putty trunk, Mr. Surfacer branches, done. However it is definately tricker then it sounds. Still a work in progress but hopefully I can get it looking better after things dry more. Thanks again for looking. Jeff

    Glad you're building this, I'll definitely follow along. Thinking of picking it up myself. Jeff
