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)!!

PSC Universal Carrier

Good evening everyone!

It's 'Pre'-Friday night tonight, so the mood is good and the spirits are high!
I hope you all enjoyed my last post, that was about a capture of a hill by some German Sdkfz 251's. Tonight the photoshoot will be more serene and easy going, as I am going to show you my newly painted PSC's Universal Carrier.

As you might be aware, I have bought two kits of them, meaning that I am going to build and paint a whole lot of six of them. But, since I am a lazy cheeky b....rd, I thought to try painting one at a time, so as to keep my modelling mood high. If you come to think about it, when you paint a large group of the same models, you tend to get bored by the whole procedure, whereas in reality, this is the exact opposite result our hobby wants to achieve. Now that I painted this Carrier for my plucky Brits, I will continue by painting a German Pak 38. Switching (painting) sides, from model to model. :-)

Anyhoo... on with the photos (the one figure is from AB, the other are from PSC):

Have a good 'Pre'-Friday night everyone!

PS: Thanks Jacksarge! ;-)

PSC Sdkfz 251/D - and a little story.

Hi everyone.

A quiet and tranquil landscape in Normandy...
but, wait a minute, we are in 1944, and the month is June...

As you see, these German soldiers are pinned. A British HMG is being located on top of the hill in front of them and they cannot move. Not without help at least. Fortunately, a radio man is with them and after his NCO order, he has requested for support.

The support makes its appearance....

The British Vickers MG now has an equal match. 

And with some mortar help...everything gets easier.

Kommen auf Kameraden!

The hill is in German hands now. They won the day. The British should come up with a different plan to re occupy it. 

Below you will see some photos of the finished Sdkfz 251/D's. Nice, sweeeet models, both in terms of assembly and in painting (note: the camo effect was made with my personal stencil method - not by an airbrush - much easier and cleaner, and budget friendly). The models come with all sorts of goodies (accessories etc.), which help you personalize each and every one of them. 

I hope you like them!
Have a great Monday night everyone! :-)

P.S: PSC Universal Carriers will be next. ;-)

New toys and some W.I.P

Hello everyone!

After a long period of policy renewals in my job, with it subsequent wrecking of my nerves, I am back!
Little God of the post, brought me new toys to play with as you can see below. The models are rather too many for me to handle, now that I come to think about it - and I am still waiting for 4 Churchill and 4 Staghounds from Blitzkrieg Models (and some German MG42 teams, but that's another story...).

The thing is, I am almost done with PSC's Sdkfz 251/D models, which as you know come in threes... :-)

I hope to be able to finish them tomorrow or in  Saturday the latest, just to get to assemble and paint PSC's Universal carriers - I am very very tempted to do so - if you see Jacksarge's post, you'll understand why... ;-)

Have a great Thursday night everyone!
