What a lovely baby tank Vincent :D

She is so cute even without tools and tracks :D

I need to build another one, soon :roll:

So much on the bench, so many failed GB's :oops:

Looking good Vincent

Thanks Steve. :) There is something special about these little Panzers and knowing your love for them I was surprised you didn't opt to build one for this GB.

Both are Tristar. It seems the remaining stocks of the Flakpanzer were thrown onto the market dirt cheap last year. The regular Panzer I is actually a clear plastic limited edition. I ordered a regular one back then.... :roll:

That is the only reason Vincent, ;)

The Flammpanzer WAS going back onto E-bay, so nothing lost if it failed disastrously :lol:

Philipp, I so wish I had a clear Pz I :mrgreen:

Never been close to having one :evil:

Paint soon Vincent?

Regards

Sorry for the late reply and lack of updates. Unfortunately, life gets in the way sometimes. :roll:
I managed to get some primer on the little fellow.

Then I put on a coat of "earth oche". I deliberately made use of the dark primer to create some shadows in the deeper areas on the hull. I lightened the base colour with some Vallejo Iraqi Sand and a touch of white. I think it worked out ok:?

Green and brown up next then the weathering starts. :)
