German Panther needs a Camo Paint job

Wednesday, August 19, 2015

German Tiger 1 completed

It's all done and was a lot of relaxing fun to build. Hopefully I eventually I want to give future projects a proper camo paint job. As this one is is how they looked fresh out of the factory.

Making a German Tiger Tank

I've been laid up lately with my yearly bout of a sinus infection and bronchitis and it has given me time to try and rest. Being that I have an interest in German Armour I have decided to get back into modeling and I'm starting off with this late version model of a Tiger 1 Tank.

Not only is it relaxing and fun it also adds a certain knowledge of my interest plus its a great way to learn some history on the subject.

It's almost like trying to read a blueprint, it gets pretty detailed sometimes. The next pic is what I've accomplished so far and there is alot more to do.

Alot of pieces right there and no where near being done.

German Stug Tank pulled from Bog

The Sturmgesch├╝tz III (StuG III) assault gun was Germany's most produced armoured fighting vehicle during World War II. It was built on the chassis of the proven Panzer III tank, replacing the turret with a fixed casemate and mounting a more powerful gun. Initially intended as a mobile, armoured light gun for direct-fire support for infantry, the StuG III was continually modified, and much like the later Jagdpanzer casemate-styled specialist armored vehicles, was widely employed as a tank destroyer.

Blue Moon tonight - July 31, 2015

A blue moon is an additional full moon that appears in a subdivision of a year, either the third of four full moons in a season or, a second full moon in a month of the common calendar.

The phrase has nothing to do with the actual color of the moon, although a literal "blue moon" (the moon appearing with a tinge of blue) may occur in certain atmospheric conditions; e.g., when there are volcanic eruptions or when exceptionally large fires leave particles in the atmosphere.
