  2. You get both a Felixstowe 2a and a Hansa-Brandenburg W.29(!): http://www.wingnutwings.com/ww/608AA6CB2F8125DDA31A424D035A5BEA

    WnW wants to listen their fans!

    In no particular order... Nieuport 28 SPAD S.XIII Albatros D.III

    Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.G

    Appreciate the feedback guys! Here are couple pics with it in Dunkelgelb. I used a primer coat of AK Interactive's Primer Black (awesome stuff), then applied AK Interactive's RAL 7028 Dunkelgelb.
  5. Added a couple Fireflies (plus metal barrels) to the growing armor stash...

    Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.G

    It has been a while, but at least I have been busy. And now I am finally ready for an update... Here are some pics of the mostly complete panzer (as far as assembly). I still have to assemble the tracks, permanently attach the road wheels and sprockets, add the tow cables, and attach the spare track links to the front of the hull: On to the painting... Speaking of which, I have decided on a scheme: a tri-color Pz.IV G from the 20th Pz.Div. in 1943. So, no schürtzen but it will have the L/43 gun. Hopefully, the next update will be sooner rather than later. (It has to be; my M48A3 is languishing on the shelf waiting to be finished.) Thanks for looking!

    Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.G

    Not a lot of progress, but made it through Step 3 and have some pics to share... I should have more soon, especially since most of the tedious, repetitive work is complete (wheels & sprockets & related). That is, until those crazy magic tracks.
  8. Great start, James! Have you picked out a scheme?

    Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.G

    Wow - I appreciate all of the interest, guys! I love the scheme illustrated in the box art as well, and I may go with that one (schürtzen and all ). But then again, I really want to do a three tone scheme so I can take advantage of the new-fangled AK Interactive German War Colors (1937-1944): http://www.ak-interactive.com/DetalleProducto.aspx?idDetalle=AK560&Pagina=./Productos.aspx?iPage=0&CCat0=010000&CCat1=010020&CCat2=010022&iPxP=21#.Uz_rT_ldU1I Bison Decals has a few schemes in one of their releases as well, but I want to stay in the box as much as possible. Speaking of in-the-box, the part count is indeed insane, but I think most of them can be attributed to the magic tracks. I've never used magic tracks before; they look like they were made to drive a man insane. So, I may go with some aftermarket tracks. Anyway, I should have some actual progress to post later this weekend.
  10. I've decided to build DML's Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.G Apr-May '43 Production (6594): There are ten different schemes to choose from, and I have no clue which one I am going to pick. I do need to decide before adding the barrel since a couple schemes L/43. Currently, I'm leaning towards the L/48. Bigger is better, right? There's also choices to be made in turret type and schürzen: Yes or No?
  11. That Pz.IIII L does look sweet. I thought about going with DML's Tiger I Initial Production [6600] which is in my stash, but as noted above, thought that Tigers would be well represented. So, I went with the Pz.IV G. Speaking of which, I need to create a thread for it...
  12. I'm all in for this group build with DML's Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.G Apr-May '43 Production (6594): There are ten different schemes to choose from, and I have no clue which one I am going to pick... In the meantime, here is a good review with multiple pics: http://www.modelarmour.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1400:dragon-pzkpfwiv-ausfg-apr-may-43&catid=37:kits&Itemid=60
  13. Tamiya makes the Mk. III/IV with three NA schemes, and there is at least one aftermarket markings option available for Soviet schemes: http://store.spruebrothers.com/product_p/ech352018.htm

    Is the reward for completed entries, or just entries? I would assume the former... as an aside, I do plan to get back to my Fokker VII build.
  15. My buddy just sent me this link, and I thought what better place to share it... The collection includes 92 manuals in total. They display in the browser, or you can print/download each manual. Lots of great research material here: http://www.scribd.com/collections/3745342/Luftwaffe-Manuals-1939-1945
