My appearance at Murphy's Heroes yesterday was a bit of a shocker. Not so much the fact that I was present, but the fact that I was carrying an assembled and painted 1:72 Airfix model of Panther tank.
This goes contrary to club myth that I don't ever paint any miniatures and as we all know you shouldn't let the facts come between a good story.
The tank is actually not for myself, but a proxy gift to my great chum Michiel, a tank hugger if there ever was one.
I had to assemble quickly to present the unpainted model at his birthday bash last Friday.
And this weekend I quickly snatched the opportunity to airbrush it. Yes, desert yellow is a cop out. But it's the thought that counts.
I even spray painted the tracks
Did some dark wash on the rear grids. And a highlight. Which makes it look presentable, doesn't it?
Oh yes! Almost forgot the decals...
