1/35th Deutsches Afrikakorps Panzer IIg

I have just put the finishing touches to the 1/35th Tamiya Panzer IIg which I have been building for the last couple of weeks. I varnished the entire thing to protect it, but I think it dulled the paint job too much. Oh well, lesson learned... It was mounted on a base from these people and I think it will make a nice addition to the rest of my models:








I hope you like it as much as I do! Thanks for looking!

  1. Very nice! One thing jumps out at me, though. That spare wheel on the front hull should have its rubber painted black. You got it on the suspension wheels, but missed it there somehow.

    This was the first armor kit I ever built, and it's great to see it get such loving attention!

    1. Thanks Scott. yes, I did know about the rubberised front wheel. But I took the executive decision of painting it yellow as though they hadn't bothered taking it off when they sprayed the tank for Africa. I reckoned that on the other wheels the paint would wear off through movement, and maybe the crew just did a better job on the road wheels...

  2. Cool diorama!I painted for many many many decades, and have seen painters paint, or not paint stuff according to the moment. Ah...the variety of life.

    1. Thanks Jay, yeah, no one can explain human behaviour and I think modellers and gamers forget that sometimes. Just because someone wrote down what should be done, doesn't mean it will be!

  3. Nicely done on this old classic. I've always liked the shape of the Panzer II. I like how a bit of resin stowage - I love Legend stuffs - brings a tank to life.
