Flakpanzer 38(t) Sd.Kfz. 140

Flakpanzer 38(t) Sd.Kfz. 140

Postby Wiking » 07 Apr 2012

Only managed to finish oe of my two efforts, so the other will have to wait...

This is the Unimodel kit with a few modifications, including a cartridge catching cage made with bits from the spares box. Figs are from AB.

Bit of an experiment with the backdrops as I didn't have time to set up an 'action' shot.
What do people prefer; blue or white? :scratch:

Great job! Love the figure standing on top of it, he really adds some action to the whole. As for the blue or white, the blue is easier on the eyes imo.

Beautiful finish.
I'll go with blue too- apart from being easier on the eye, the colours "pop" a bit more that with the white. Probably some saturating effect off the white background or somesuch.

Thanks for the kind comments chaps... :hello:

Slowly and carefully with a very , very small brush! ;)
Seriously - I try and learn from studying photographs and other people's work. There are lots of good examples on the forum...
My other main source is Calvin Tan's book 'Modelling Waffen-SS Figures' - If you're thinking of painting any German camo then I'd recommend it. The book covers 1/35 figures but the principles are the same and the step by step guides and colour palettes are brilliant...

Hmm... still undecided - I know what you mean about the blue though - definitely gives a richer set of tones....
