G'day fellow wargamers & military modellers, this weekend I'm posting my completed model of the White Scout car. This is an Italeri 1/72 model which I picked up at a local model shop (probably paid too much for it, but if I buy their stock they might get some more models in :)). I haven't built a model with this many parts since I was a teenager, so I was a bit rusty & maybe some parts weren't quite in the right alignment, but I was happy with the end results.
The crew is of mixed manufacture with a Kelly's Heroes driver, a Caesar Miniatures officer pointing, an AB Miniatures officer lounging and a HaT British tank rider chap seated.
The decals are for 130th Brigade of 43rd Wessex Division, and made by Doms Decals- intended for 15mm stuff but seem to work fine at this scale.
The weathering is a combination of paint and Vallejo & MiG pigments- a mixture of colours. This is the first of my own models which I have applied a decent amount of pigments to, and I am quite pleased with how it turned out. I haven't sprayed it with dullcoat yet, I'm a bit unsure what this will do to the pigments.
The idea is to use this as a British command vehicle for Kampfgruppe Normandy.
I'd like to be able to take better photographs, as the models often look better in "the flesh" than what I can photograph- anyone got tips for taking better pictures?- bear in mind I have a pretty basic digital camera.
