My photo
Being a modeller for quite a few years now, I decided to explore the endless possibilities that the world (through internet) offers, and come up with a series of ways of building, modelling and painting fast (but not hastily), to create the worlds I was seeing in history books since I was little. . .If you care to join me. . . This is the place to be! And, I promise you to find the way (or ways)!!

Zvezda's German 105mm Howitzer without crew

Hi everyone!

Today I am uploading some photos of the finished German 105mm Howitzers from Zvezda.

I decided to go ''Dunkelgelb''! :-)
I now need to buy some Pegasus German Trucks, to make them as the gun tractors. The thing is, that it's rather difficult to find them and that's why the guns are on their own!
Oh, and one last thing: you may have noticed, that the guns are shown without any crew. Besides the artistic touch of not adding any, I must inform you that I have painted the figures, but up until today I haven't received the Army Painter's Magic Dip (I bought it for 23 euro - here in Greece costs around 32 euro) which I ordered almost three weeks ago!

So, enough with the talking!!

I hope you like them!

Comments are more than welcome!



  1. I hope you like them, what's not too like? Great work as ever, looking forward to crew and the rare trucks.

  2. They're looking really good. The plain dunkelgelb works well.

  3. Indeed, very nice-painted battery!

  4. Looking good! They're ready for that scenario from Band of Brothers I see :-)

  5. Great paint job T I like the used look. Well done


  6. I like the look of them.
    A question...why buy AP at that price when fence creosote does the same thing and costs what?....15€ for 5 litres??
    Basically any wood stain will do the can get all sorts these days, matt etc in lots of different tones from dark oak to clear. And!! The local hardware shop will have lots of waiting time :-D Test it on one fig...believe me it works.

  7. Thanks everyone!
    @Paul: Perhaps you are right. When you are on a tight budjet, you must think of the alternatives. I think I'll give it a try!
    Thanks for the tip my friend!
