I've been led astray!!
But it was temporary, had educational value and was FUN!!!
A friend of mine asked me if I could build him a vehicle for 40K which would suit an urban combat enviroment. Sure, no problem, I thought...
I thought that an old M113 with wheels would look cool and he supplied me with a lot of 40k-bits and pieces and the M113-hull.
The turret came from an old M60-tank and the turret's gun is an old LAW from a Dragon weaponsset, as are the flamethrowers (stingers). I used parts from the rollingdoorsystem of a filingcabinet from IKEA for the wheels and tealightcups for the wheelarches.
The colours had to match the Sovjetequipment from the "Fuel of War"-game and I wanted to make it look a little WW2 German too..
I used an airbrush for the first time and I applied washed for the first time too, using white spirit.
And this is how it turned out...
Non of the items here are posted with any form of political meaning, content or similar. Everything is displayed with an emphasis on historical correctness, unless stated otherwise. Swastikas and SS-runes are a part of military history, as are David's stars, rising suns, stars & stripes, hamer & scyths etc. If you have a problem with that, please feel free to leave! Political correctness does not live here and I will not be held accountable for hurting any overly sensitive souls that can not handle history.
If you are interested in building scalemodels, study actual military history and the like however, you're most welcome to stay, browse, read and/or comment.
The contents of this blog are mine; the models I built, the ideas I used etc. If you want to use these, I'd appreciate it if you asked permission first and use the contents as they are intended; the making and depicting of scalemodels.
The reference pictures I used were dug up on the internet and I use them only as such. Unfortunately I have no idea where I found them anymore, but many are from German archives. These pictures have their origin still visible on them.
