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 #6142 German Motorcycle R-12 (w. sidecar)

Good day everyone!

The weather here in Greece improves more and more every day, and that means that soon my paints will get dry very quickly whilst painting due to the increasing temperature, we have during summertime.
Despite the weather and the sirens' songs of the local pubs, I managed to finish Zvezda's #6142 German Motorcycle R-12 model, a great model (even though a bit feeble, but more robust since it is destined to be used as a wargames model), and some other German figs. The motorcycle and the sidecar, came along nicely, so were the figures that the kit included. I decided to paint it in early-war colours and base it on one of my famous pizza box stands (with some greenery to spice it up a bit).



The other figures were painted in the usual colours. VMC 830 Field grey for the first two, and white (with a Vallejo's pale wash) for the remaining two. The snow effect on the bases is baking soda.

I hope you like 'em!
C&C are more than welcome!

    1. It's a bit expensive in terms of cost, but the quality makes me overlook this aspect! Thx Alan!
