I currently have limited access to the D-day website and no access to my FTP, as I cant post any news updates my enthusiasm to work on D-day has dropped somewhat. So I decided to work on a physical model instead of a voxel one #Tongue I haven't made a model tank in about 15 years (moved house & no longer had the space to make models). I had a lot of fun making this so I plan to make some more, if there is interest I'll post more of my modelling work here.











For comparison this T-34/85 was made 15 years ago, it's been sitting on a shelf since.

sure, show more.
But make a mammoth, please.

concerning your tank. detailing is nice.
Only the lighting is off. #Tongue Sun (flashlight) needs to be in southwest.
The ground could use some work too. It looks untextured and a bit flat.

I still want to make a mammy #Tongue My original idea to make a 3D model and get a company to print it came to an abrupt end when I realized they would cost over £100 each. I could buy my own 3D printer now which would drastically reduce the cost of each model but would still require a large initial investment. I might end up making one out of plastic card, but it would then be a one off hand made model just for me then.

you could try to print each face/wall on paper. Then use the paper pieces as pattern for the real material cuttings (wood, metal whatever).
Or print on something stronger like cardboard and then enhance it later with layers of carbon fiber (basically pieces of fabric soaked with glue which you put on the inside in multiple layers)

Your local "Hobbyland" seams to specialize in pre-built die cast models that wont be as detailed as hand made and painted model kits.

I don't plan on making a Stug, I prefer more exotic prototype vehicles like the E-25. I don't plan on selling any of the modes I make either, the Mammoth tank would have been an exception but it would have been sold as a kit rather then a finished model.

Here is another E-25 (the kit comes with a pair of them) this time done in a winter white wash camo.





I still cant access the D-day site or anything else on the sever BTW and I wont be able to post any D-day news until I can, so more models coming #Tongue

Ace weathering work. As a miniatures guy nowadays, your work is top notch and I'm pretty jealous.

Thanks, these two where my first time weathering a model so I experimented with several different techniques and types of paint to see how they would turn out. I'm happy with the effects overall but I feel I over did it in a few places #Tongue I'm planing to move from 1/72 up to 1/35 next with an Jagdpanzer E-10.

WIP pic of my 1/35 Jagdpanzer E-10.



I'm also making a turreted recon version of the E-10 which requires making a lot of scratch build parts from plastic card. So far I've made the basic shape of the turret and the gun mantlet.

Interesting compact, low-frame design with the E-25, reminds me of a tank destroyer but apparently it was more of a reconnaissance/light assault vehicle. Shouldn't the lack of a rotateable turret make it inferior to the Panzers it was supposed to supersede?

Good models. Keep it up.

nice
and when you got all the 500 D-Day units done as models as well, you can use the models to create stop motion videos for D-Day Smile

D-Day's unit count currently stands at 979. I think I can make one model a week if I really really rush (slowly taking my time atm). At that rate it would take me over 20 years to make models of all of them. But then you have to consider that I add a new unit to D-day at the rate of about one a week too...

I'm making progress with the turret for the recon E-10. I added a metal barrel that I bought extra & an infra-red night fighting scope that I nicked from an E-100 kit.



The normal E-10 hull needs to be enlarged to fit the turret so I did some surgery in preparation for building a new upper hull section.



Here is how it looks with the turret on top to give an idea of what I'm aiming for.

Yes, the whole turret is based on the Puma/Leopard design.

More updates, I made the upper hull plate & also nicked some front hatches from an E-50 kit to fit in it.

So I said I wouldn't buy a Stug model kit but... I got a Girls Und Panzer Stug, along with the four other main tanks from the show.

Fun fact: I knew about Girls und Panzer before you made VXLs for 'em in D-Day.
