CoC 1/56 France 1940 Pz 38(t)...

Post by Captain Darling » Sun Apr 07, 2019 11:56 am

Hi All,

Completed a Warlord 1/56 Panzer 38(t) for use with my 1940 CoC forces, very nice kit...

It will eventually get some light weathering (short campaign in relatively dry conditions so a good ‘dust up’ will suffice), my thoughts on this kit and Warlords Renault R35 are on our TSOG Blog...

Very nice! The rivet detail came out perfectly.

Nice job
I would definitely add some weathering to the tracks - not mud for summer in France - though it did rain a fair bit in June - but some dirt always gets picked up between the tracks off road

This Is really nice.

Do you have any suggestions on mixing up the early war tanks? For example I'm thinking on adding a flag over the engines, any other ideas?

Panzer grey is great and all. Just bland when there's a lot.

I really like the idea of the air recognition flag, how would you do it?
I also like to put commanders in early war berets on them .

First thought that comes to mind is to print out the flag, cut it out and liberally daub the back with pva. Wait until the paper has soaked up enough to be floppy, then drape it over the engine deck, arrange how you want it and leave it to dry.

I'd do a trial run or two first on some spare bits to see how it works, but I think that ought to work.

Hope that helps.

Cheers,
Jim

Let me know how you go - I tried it and the ink ran
You can get decals - but again you need something that looks like cloth

I have done flags for 18th century troops that way. Mind you, I have a small laser printer, so the ink is permanent. Is yours ink jet?

I soaked some tissue in PVA, draped and then painted it.
