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)!!

Plastic Soldier Company - Panzer IV

Goodmorning everyone!

Hope you are all well!
Last weekend I've finished PSC's - Panzer IV tanks. Their 'entry' to the market, came to fill the gap (at least for us wargamers - since they are fast-build models), and IMO the anticipation was long, but it was worth it.
When buying the kit, you have a selection of three versions (early, mid and late) to make. I decided to follow the late version . . . and because many discussions have been made about the 'bulky' commander figures that come with the Panzers, I decided to back up the models, by using the ones that the kit offers! :-)

I hope you like them!!

Plastic Soldier - Russian 45mm Anti-Tank Gun

Good day everyone!Σύνδεσμος
I have finally managed to finish PSC's Russian 45mm Anti-Tank Gun kit. The kit comes in a very small size (peculiar isn't it?), but its sprues are more than enough (4 guns & 16 figures) - let aside the variety of gun selection! Each gun sprue has 4 options (muzzles), that allows us to build our early (mainly) A/T company according to our needs. The figures are the distinctive PSC's figures (a bit chunky, but a major improvement from the first kit), which is quite reasonable if you consider the fact that each figure comes in multiple parts.

I have painted all guns with Vallejo's MC Russian Green, and the crews with Vallejo's MC Russian Uniform. The crews however, are painted half with their bases grey (city fight), half with dirt and grass bases (vast russian steppes).

I hope you like them!

A nice little village. . . in the East!

Good day and good week everyone!

This last weekend was one of the warmest in Athens (38 C), so the possibility of me taking my paints out and paint, was simply out of the question - they would dry in no time!
But, a weekend without playing is a weekend not worth,that's why I decided to lay out most of the things I've made so far for the Eastern Front. I like to see it as a nice little village, peaceful until the war comes. . . :-)
The village has some buildings from Pegasus Hobbies, fences which are scratch build (balsa strips), roads (scratch build) made by vinyl tiles, tree stands (ready made trees) - made from old CD's and wheatfields - made by a doormat! :-)

Do you have any suggestions, of what else I should add to this piece of terrain to improve it?

I hope you like it!

A big (ware)house - and then some green. . .

Good day everyone!

Today I have uploaded some photos of a new terrain piece that I've made, inspired by a photo I saw in a friends' holidays album. It is a simple big (ware)house that can be used IMO in many WW2 fields, and with the little field I also made, and stands beside it, they create a nice duo of country terrain pieces.
The construction was rather easy (foamcore, Vallejo'S Red oxide paste, acrylic paints, Slaters Roof sheet), as you all will notice that it hasn't many details.
The field was made by a piece of vinyl tile, some PVA + Sand mixture, and some greenery.

I hope you like them!
