|Here's the force lined up after painting. A Panther, Pzkw IV and two Sug III G.|
|This is the stock Battlefront Panther and I gotta say - it's a nice kit!|
|Late model "G" on the left with the early model on the right. Still need to attach the side skirts (Shurzen)|
|A trio of Pzkw IV H models. Think I went a little overboard with the brown.. These are models I picked up at Fall In! already assembled and base coated in Armor Yellow. I added the green and brown. I need more practice with the airbrush!|
|These are two Battlefront Pzkw IV H sold in the awesome two pack.|
|There was a panzer IV F2 included in my purchase. Feeling a little out of place for late war.|
|Practicing painting on the schurzen. That third one in just went SPLAT!|
|A bit more prototypical!|
Of course, now I'm dusting off all the stuff that's been sitting in boxes for the last ten years (or more!) . This includes today's project - a trio of Old Glory M36 Jackson tank destroyers.
|There's not too many pieces, which is good.|
|One of the models was already assembled.|
|The other two required...some assembly.|
Okay, After assembling a bunch of the Battlefront plastic models, I just want to say - lead miniatures suck! After working with the plastic models and seeing the detail done with the plastics, assembing these lead models was a real drag. Getting out the CA glue, getting the CA glue on my fingers. Gluing my fingers together. Trying to glue the barrel in a tiny hole that doesn't seem like a good fit.
Yeah, yeah, I know - these were state of the art ten years ago. But that was then and this is now. It's a golden age for 15mm WWII gaming. That's all I'm saying.
