Some recent efforts to clear the workbench... my answer to beating some excessive heat and humidity.

These plastic Roco-Herpa (now Arsenal M) Pzkw IVs came to me from a friend. When I obtained them they had a Panzer Yellow base coat. Since they already had paint, I didn't want to mess with stowage, so just finished them off as they were. Just need to affix the turret machineguns and they will be done.

I also finished-up some Trident metal kits that had been languishing with just a coat of primer. Nice kits, which are robust except for the Sdkfz 10/4 gun barrel; which you can see lying on the workbench because of my clumsy self.

Thanks Guys.

Richard, the muted colors are typically a result of the drybrushing.
You can really see the difference between the base color and finished, drybrushed color on the Pzkw IIIs earlier in this thread.

Cheers,
Bill

Something different - after seeing a combat photo of an M20 utility car with a canvas cover in-action, which I can no longer find, and then seeing a resin model of an M20 with canvas cover, it seemed appropriate to tackle that conversion. Initially formed with an old tea bag and white glue over the supersturcture, then further shaped (twice) rubbing-in a little more thinned down white glue, this is the result once primed and base coated in khaki gray. Later war OD on the vehicle... rather than the brownish OD used on most of my U.S. equipment. Official photo. Resin kit photo. Conversion photos.
