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 Kit 6106 - German MG-34 with crew

Good day guys!

Hope you are all well.
In one of my last posts, I showed you what I bought from my local store. In the lot, there was Zvezda's #6106 kit - German MG-34 with crew. Last Monday, I managed to finish both MG elements and I added two figures (prone poses), from Italeri's (ex. Esci) German Soldiers (one of the first set of figures I ever bought in my life).
I needed to use the guys with the binoculars in seperate bases just in case I wanted to use them as forward observers (ex. for artillery) alongside some radio-men for the coordinates.

I followed the same principle in terms of basing, as I did with my Russian Maxim guns - meaning pizza stands, pieces of foliage cluster, pieces of plastic sprue, plaster and balsa wood.

On with the photos then...



I hope you like 'em! :-)

Have a great day guys!

T.

  2. Hi T, if I may comment on something? It may be the photos but the helmets seem to be too black, I would go with a more greyish colour.

    1. Hi Greg!
      As you probably have understood already, taking photos is not my thing...I've used VMC 70.995 German Grey for the helmets, that's why they got out so 'blacky'. I may have to come with a different approach. Thx for the tip!

  6. These are some really nice poses and you've done a marvelous job painting them. The two different styles of basing material is also nice and the photo's are well done, especially the last one.

  8. Amazingly painted! I wish I could someday find the perfect tint of grey/green that your germans have, could you please make a little tutorial on that? (Your Russian ones were great and even inspired me to go and get the AA that will soon be on my blog).

    Keep up the great work!
