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)!!

German 15cm Nebelwerfer

Good afternoon everyone!


Hope you are all well.
September has arrived and I am trying to get back on track, again.


I have been quite busy these past few days, and today I am going to show you my latest work.


I have recently acquired two Nebelwerfer models (metal) - you know, the moaning ‘’minnies’’,  from Britannia Miniatures, as you see in the photos below.
The models were not expensive (3 GBP/model) and they were very easy to assemble.


A sequence of photos from start to finish follows. Gluing, basing, painting and playing (in the end of this post you’ll see what I mean by ‘playing’...).


The bases were made from vinyl tiles and the rest of the stuff around the models were from Sgt’s Mess (Small boxes and German Water cans) and from SHQ (15cm Nebelwerfer rockets - VP10).


Since the Nebelwerfers come without escorts, I used some spare figures I had from PSC Late War German Infantry Heavy Weapons kit.


My name is not Thomas by the way... :-)


































Last but not least, I have prepared for you a small video, showing what this little bugger did in reality.

I hope you like them!


Have a good Tuesday night everyone.

  2. very impressive - been keen to see how the pumice would work. It makes a nice base. I'll be keeping an eye out for some. Thanks for sharing.

  3. These look very nice. The add ons (boxes and such) really make the base stand out.

  6. Beautifully designed and modeled vignettes, Mr. T. Wonderful detail, right down to the burnt powder covering on the firing tube projectile areas.
