Hi guys!
I haven`t been here for several months because of lack of time and some busyness, but the work on new projects was going on and I will continue sharing the recently finished models.

Last time I showed you the Walking FlammPanzer 38(tx)
http://www.network54.com/Forum/110741/m ... 2C+1943%29

And today I want to show you my Minenraumer which was finished somew time ago.
In comparison with the old RPM kit Meng`s Minenraumer is absolutely fantastic! But nevertheless some improvements were made:
-the ladder on the left side
-some lacking welding seams
-cast texture on the tracks
-cast texture on the rear wheel holder
-thin screens on the engine deck
and some other improvements













Some in-progress images:






Hope you like it!
All the comment are welcome!

Those track shoes are just brilliant! Best weathering I have ever seen on this site or any other for that matter.

The vehicle looks like it should be crushing some of those "WarHammer" tanks, really cool sci-fi looking, hard to remember it's German WWII.

Hello Vladimir
I always thought that this was one of the more stranger prototypes that I have read about. I really like the grey tone along with all of the wash effects. The steel tones on the feet, although a bit uniform, look authentic.

Thanks for the link to this thread earlier today.

Love your detailing and weathering, top notch!

Can you tell us which aftermarket machine gun barrels you used? Thanks in advance.

Cheers,

Christophe

Nice work on the mine roller Vlad. The track shoes look great, very nice metal effects. I should be done with mine this weekend, in a different color scheme than yours.

another excellent piece from you! Thanks for sending the colors for the Magirus as well, I'm sorry I never wrote to thank you. It's on the bench now; I hope it comes out half as well as yours!

Cheers, Tracy

Thank you, Bruce!
The Minenraumer really looks like something from WH 40000 universe. Very unusual vehicle.
