The "Tiny Tiger" work: Revell 1/72.

This small (really small) vignette was inspired by some evocative photos of the Villers-Bocage battle on 13 June 1944, one week after D-Day. I used Revell´s 1/72 Tiger Ausf. E along with Mig productions detail set and Atak zimmerit set, really nice sets both of them.
Ob´s stürmt oder schneit...

The first picture below is a photomanipulation with the model, please don´t use it as documentation. I think that the Photoshop work is obvious but some people have complaint because they have been cheated by some of my former manipulations. Please remember the first rule in Internet: DO NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING!

The finished model photos were shot by Luciano Rodríguez. Thanks Lu.

GUEST GALLERY: Vought F4U1-D Corsair "White 167" 1/48 by MAREK VRZÁK.

This is the plane flown by Lt. Cdr. Roger R. Hedrick from the USS Bunker Hill in February 1945. This stunning model was made by Czech modeller Marek Vrzák. Marek used the Tamiya kit along with Aires detailing set. Both detailing and painting are equally awesome, that´s the firm of an artist.
It took him several years of work to finish this beauty but I´m sure you will all agree with me that it was time extremely well spent.

The "Busted Beast" work: Tamiya 1/48.

Happy New Year everyone!
This is the nice Tamiya 1/48 Jagdpanther Late Version. I added some details to make a little later version than the kit´s choice. The weathering is mainly done with AK products. You can check the build process here: WIP process
Hope 2013 will be a great modelling year for everybody.
