Tamiya 1/35 Scale German "Wespe" - Finished
Posted by Ole on Sunday, February 10, 2019 3:06 PM

This is my first post on this forum. I normally "live' on the aircraft side, but every so often I want to build something else, usually armor. This is the older Tamiya Wespe, Kit 35200 which was built completely box stock and lightly weathered . Great little kit, no issues and fun to put together. Thanks for looking!

Defiantly a build to be proud of. Really like your camo and weathering work thanks for sharing.

Your attention to details is amazing! Rust, oil and unpainted metal is so perfect if this model were in a field setting I would have thought it was real.

Hey Ole, you nailed this Wespe, but "lightly weathered"? Your rust and paint chip technique are spot on. BTW your rear road wheel came off the track. Still a very good build.

Can't say I know anything about armor, but I can say that is some beautiful work.

Wow!

I know next to nothing about armor but if I could do weathering like yours I'd be a very happy camper. That's really fabulous work to my eyes.

Send the mechanics out to fix that starboard rear road wheel Wink.

Can you throw a link or two of your completed aircraft kits this way?
