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 use were dug up on the internet and I use and share them only as such; a reference. Whenever possible I will state the source, but unfortunately I have no idea where I found many of them anymore. The vast majority of the military images have been "living" on my harddrive for years.

Italeri's Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf.H - the Panzerbefehlswagen IV

Now the build is really complete!
I thought the panzer still looked kind of naked, not done. so I added some more bits and bobs, since I was not really pleased with the overall looks. I added pieces of track to ther front, wires to the headlights, antennae on rear and turretroof and a jerrycanrack to the rear. So now my panzer 4 has become a Befehlspanzer IV.
I also added the turretarmor and you might notice that the right handside is too low. During the curingstage that side started to sag and I noticed it when everything had set.
Additional extras like a box between hull and plates and helmets on the turretarmor will be added after the paintingstage. And that will actually be my biggest challenge!!
Since the purpose of this build is to create a whitewash I was planning like this:
Yellow paint
clear gloss and decals
lining in
flat clear
white paint and details in different colours.
clear gloss
weathering (don't know how yet?)
flat clear
