In respect to all fellows that finished the Marder before the dead line, next sunday, I should vote NO.
In the other hand, some really need more time, due to mailling delays, Christmans, vaccations, etc...
I'm showing mine, 90% done.
I have plenty of time doing it, no pressure at all, and a lot of pleasure, also learned a lot with all the works posted here.
My model lacks of good pics, again. I will try better shots by the weekend, with better light.
This is my first tracked model in the quarter scale, also my first model using filters and pigments.
The images talk for it self, learning is growing...
Tanks for looking and comenting.


A travelling desert Marder, with some extra personal gear.
Gun barrel locked (also locked in the battle compartment), gun sight drilled but covered with canvas (for dust protection), ammunition shells also drilled, as the MG in the front and the box in the right side.
A canvas top (for desert sun) made with paper. The other canvas are made with putty.(gun barrel, box and sight)
Mud and rust - MIG prod.
Tanks for looking, Hilton.

Hi Hilton;

I like this model very much! All the personal kit gives it a nice gypsy caravan look, perfect for the desert theme, I think.
I am loving all the DAK Marders lately.

All your shading & pigment work has come off very well too.

Another excellent Marder!

Cheers Mate, Pat

Okay, I am just going to quit Marder Mania. I just can't produce works like this yet. I love this and also like your "dark" painting style. Very interesting interpretation of the DAK Marder.



Honestly I was waiting to see yours in anticipation of something cool, and you did not disappoint. It is really interesting and a whole lot to look at.



I have a long way to go with modeling.



Fantastic looking model - I am jealous.



Phil

The personal gear in the basket looks fantastic.

Hi Hilton,

You're paintjob is a "classical" paintjob but a good paintjob !

And,with all what you've done (canvas ,etc ) you gave some life to the model !

COngrats,
David

I love the dramatic finish you've done, nice strong shadows and shading! You've done a great job with the stowage too and the tarp over the top looks great!

Regards

Alex

incredible!
It has been fantastic, with all the equipment and the awning.
I have to learn to make fabrics with putty, I was delighted.
