Greatcoat

28mm greatcoat figure, a futurist WW2 German lookalike, still need to do the bottom coat as you can see but before that I need to clean up the figure a bit the breast plate armor dried rough.

WW2 German weapons and Goliath

New scratched build weapons and Sd.kfz.303 Goliath
first up the weapons
top Gewehr 43, STG-44 and bottom MP-40 with buttstock.
Still need to cast these guys and make new magazine pouches.

Goliath still a lot to do here with the tracks being he hardest part.
the crew is already done but forgot to take pictures of them so more on that later on.

basic info on the Goliath more on the Sd,kfz,302 then the later and bigger Sd.kfz303 version that I'm making but still interesting.

Russian tank crew

Russian tank crew reloading set will have
- commander doing commander stuff aka nothing
- 2 guys handling ammo
- guy with DT machine gun
- and the other no idea yet


Russian armored motorcycle update 3

started with the rivets and it slowly driving me insane, the rivets are made by sculpting small balls of Procreate, pretty easy to do.
Normal I use 3D paint but I dont think it will survive casting and drilling a small hole and placing a rivet in there takes to much time.

Russian armored motorcycle

Yesterday I found a drawing of  a Russian armored motorcycle armed with a DT machine gun, there is not much info on it other then a side view and a small drawing to getter with other project that never got of the ground, like a hover tank and a armored snowmobile.
By the looks of it it only had 1 track with 2 wheels for stabilization and a normal motorcycle front wheel for steering  

as it looked like a fun project I started building it  


so far I made part of the hull
