Tamiya GB ---> Hetzer weathering

Here is progress so far with the ninja turtle. This turned into quite the expensive little kit as I ended up having so much fun with it that I could not help but to visit every LHS in the area to scour their shelves for paints and supplies. In addition, I purchased a compressor and went to michaels a few times and even ended up with a giant box of plaster of paris for the mud effects..

Luckily I will be moving to the area I am currently in very shortly and have arranged to have all these new items (99% duplicates of stuff I have at home...can never have too much paints, right?) stored here temporarily. I am sure TSA would have loved solvents, paints, a compressor and a bunch of other crap in my checked bag... happy.gif

Some detail items remain to be picked out and painted. I plan on adding some stowage (helmets etc) to break up the overall color schemes of yellows and browns. Apologies for the outdoors pictures. I had a very hard time managing to photograph this thing with the very limited light sources in the hotel.

As I will be quite busy over the next couple of weeks I will have a very limited time available to continue on this model or any other for that matter. My hopes however are that towards the tail end of the GB timeline I will have finished this guy, and hopefully that JS 2 you guys saw in the background in my initial post. By then I will have a little photo booth set up as well and perhaps I may have the privilege to share with you all some decent photos of my stuff for a change happy.gif

I want to say thank you to all fellow modellers that have contributed to the GB so far. Some fantastic stuff that has been very inspiring. I wish I had time to respond to each and every one of the the great models I see here.

Lastly ( I know you are thinking.., shut up and show me the pictures already..) If anyone is from the South Florida or ideally Miami proper area and has the low down on the modeling community around here, let me know!

Hi Chaz,

You have it almost done!!

I like the contrast of the weathering over the yellow paint.
