Hi all!
I`m glad to be here again! as usual I continue to show the recently finished projects.
A couple weeks ago this was the Syrian post-war Panzer IV:http://www.network54.com/Forum/110741/m ... +Panzer+IV

...and today I want to show you a sweet couple of SdKfz 7 and sFH 18. These models were built some months ago for a private collection. The assembly of DML`s kits was executed by my friend Pavel Cherepanov using some PE, turned and resin parts, while I was concentrated on painting and weathering these models and numerous accessories. To tell the truth, painting the half-track and the gun was easier than painting the accessories.

Here are the images of this sweet couple:




The Sd 7 separately:






Some closer images:




And the gun:





Hope you like it!

the weathering is superb. Just enough and very understated with the worn areas being in just the correct spots. I love the bottle of vodka.
A small suggestion for the SfH though. I love how you included the items carried on the gun trails,very accurate according to most of the ref pics I have seen but when in the travel mode,the guns' hydraulic recoil connecting rod was disconnected in order to allow maximum recoil of the barrel to lock it in travel mode. A minor point but I wanted to mention it as this is such a wonderful piece and being a man of such obvious talent and attention to accuracy I thought that you would like to know something like this?
BTW,does this kit come with the fabric curtains on the crew openings or did you also make those? They are a fantastic addition if so.
I only happen to know this stuff because I have been studying German artillery a lot lately.

Very impressive work! The weathering and details are perfect! It's a little thing, but you really nailed the color of the wicker boxes, matts, etc!

Cheers, Tracy

nicely weathered. I appreciate you may not want so much weathering higher up the builds but I think somthing more could be added say across the hood/bonnet and upper portions of the gun to subtly age/ distress the paint to give a bit more rich finish
Sweet work on all the equipment! Any figures in mind?

A great work ... yes ... but a question ... does not carry the vehicle too much equipment of infantry??? It is my understanding that belongs to an artillery unit ... if so, i think that so much ammunition, grenades is somewhat excessive ..... i guess that is a matter of taste ... i like the detail of the boots ... are the soldiers bathing in the river???
