some work

I did some work on scratch with olds model, to have 2 more pzIvG for a 3 pz zug, both are old esci kits without big scratch, the 3rd only have to be drybrushed, details paint and a base also needed. The 4th pz IV as an esci but no more turret so I used a matchbox one and used turret shurzen so difference between 1/72 body and 1/76 turret is not seen much. I changed the gun, and added some details. the pz III are a munitionschlepper one and a beobachtung pzIII, both used at kursk, the fisrt is on a esci base, the second on altaya... the 3 sd are for the auklärung abteilung: sdkfz 223 dragon, sdkfz 222 britannia and a scratch sdkfz 221 on a arfix base with 28mm from dragon, All this will need some paint .....

Kampfgruppe Meyer

I'm not talking about an Ardennes SS 44 kampfgruppe, but of my Kampfgruppe, I decided to do to play Battlegroup the Kampfgruppe will be mainly of Grossdeutchland pz grenardier div, as it's one of the only elite german div that had fighted during the whole war, without being involved in war or humanity crime... To begin with we will play the first scenario of Kampfgroup Kourk: Clash of Reconnaissance As we have already 20mm minis, we have decided to play Battlegroup Kurk, as it is almost the most effective model range... For this as the german player I have to paint 30 german miniatures, a truck, a pak 38, a pz IVG, a sdkfz 232 and a sdkfz 233 So last week I had a look at what I had in the old models box and found an opel truck and a pz IV G, both were esci with made with poor glue and hand painted with humbrol enamel... so I cleaned them, reglued some parts and took missing parts on other models to make them better... after what I have painted them and washed them with AK enamel I have also buy a PSC pak 38, and have already painted the 6 figs to have the pak crew and also a 3 men loaderteam
