It began with a Tank

So I've had this blog page created for some time, but never had the time or motivation in sufficient quantities to bother adding to it. Well, that all changes today! (Hah!) - so beginning at the beginning with the amble through what's on the painting bench currently.

A Panther Ausf G from JTFM - part of a large commission for some thoroughly decent chaps in the North. A nice enough kit, although the tracks aren't up to much in all honesty. The only other gripe is whatever mould release agent Jeff (at JTFM) uses is a monumental git to remove.

Anyway, Panther above is photographed just prior to it's first gloss varnish - so airbrushed, filtered, and chipped... next comes gloss varnish, 'pin' wash (with oils), and oil stains (also with oils), before matt varnish then finishing with mud pigment and dust.

As well as the Panther, I've got a whole load of early war British stuff from BEF Miniatures to do as well. More detail soon.
