WW2 modeling
 
5 Attachment(s)
Here is one of my other hobbies that I enjoy from time to time. :thumbsup:

What I love the most about plastic models is that besides building it, which is time consuming but therapeutic :D, one gets to see the project through to completion and finish the model the way one imagines it and sees it.

My favorite plastic modeling subject is WW2 armor and vehicles. Both Axis and Allies. Since the armor/vehicles were never spotless and clean, having seen some really rough action and battles, it adds a whole other dimension as to how to "weather" and add "wear/tear" to the models for more realism to a plastic model.

I've only started enjoying this hobby recently and it was a steep learning skill with building, air brushing, weathering, etc... It is a time consuming hobby for sure. So far I'm having a lot of fun with it.

Some pics.


Soviet WW2 T-34/76 tank. It is not only the most produced tank of the WWII-era, with 84,000 built (compared to the 48,966 Shermans of all versions) but also one of the longest-serving tanks ever built.

Thanks.

The Axis armor is a very popular modeling subject among the modelers.

Here is the German Tiger tank, a much feared foe that no Allied force looked forward to meeting in battle. :no:

Thanks Ivan.

Here is a model I did last year. It is a Panzer III Ausf N from the Deutsches AfrikaKorps (DAK) led by field marshal Erwin Rommel in the North African campaign. Most historians say it was the last of the "gentleman's war" as far as WW2 goes.

The Panzer III Ausf N was designed as a close-support infantry gun firing a high-explosive shell (hence the relatively short barrel) but was also effective against the tanks it faced early in the war.

I modeled the model to look battlefield worn from the harsh, sandy and dusty conditions the troops encountered in the North African environment.

Wow! I used to build models, and thought I was pretty good, but you are on a different level! Very impressive.

Thanks Marc. Never thought I'd get into model building but I'm having fun with it. Not artistic but learning airbrushing was a lot of fun. :yes:

Here is a model I really enjoyed working on and it took about 3 weeks to complete. Very detailed model with lots of parts... :sigh:
