Thanks Mr Rainford, of all the things to do on a German tank eh :O a bloody bulldozer blade :/
I'd still rate a Hetzer as one of my bucket-list tanks, but that will be a long while away I suspect ;)

I like your outdoor posted pictures, reminds me what sunshine looks like ! 8)


Ahh sunshine...........ruins the skin, bleaches the ground, evaporates water and requires air-conditioning to avoid it.
Great for drying paint though. ;)
Thanks for the credit mate, it'll do eh

Been let down on track supply by a local outlet,so a delay is in place
The outer hull details are as good as they will get now.
The blade is about right now.
I fitted clear plastic strip inside the cupola and painted clear blue over the vision slot areas. As the hatch will be shut, any lack of interior cupola detail is unnecessary.
To cover the hole in the mantlet that the absent gun left I used a patch of cloth secured with a small rubber band used to retain braces, and once in place additional cover with a length of embroidery yarn coloured as rope.
Soaked it in Tamiya flat clear, and lightly dry brushed a wash over it.
I feel its plausible that such a large open penetration into the tank interior must have been covered or plugged.
Dust, debris and rain would have affected the operation of the machine, so why not cover it?
Once I get tracks painted & fitted, I will blow a light dusting over the whole lot to blend it together.

Literally lost for words on how awesome this looks. I love the paint work on the dozer blade, looks spot on.

Good Morning, Herman,
The paintwork and attention to Detail are right on the money with this Build. It has caught the notice of people who no longer inhabit the Forum even. Word of mouth is a powerful thing. ;o) Great Job!, Doc.
regards,
Painless

Great see you around Mr 332.
I hope with more practice mine can be just as “shit” as yours !!
How hard do you reckon changing a TAMIYA G to an A or D would be ?

The paint job is indeed perfect. I like the rusted metal look on the Schaufel most. Have to take a few ideas Drem that.
