Whif(ish) Pz II
« on: October 19, 2017, 01:44:02 pm »




A revel pzii that Iíd bought along with a Comanche from an awesome model shop in Rotterdam. The intent had just been to throw it together to get a model finished and try to bump start the modelling mojo. Itís only a whif in that the grey I used is actually fairly green and I used a mishmash of markings from the two decal options. I am pretty chuffed with it though. This is the first model Iíve used washes and stains for shading raised details and wear. Hope you enjoy!

Looks good! :thumbsup:

Scale? :unsure: (Looks 1/35 but photo's can be deceptive with tiny tanks.)


Put it in the standard armour section at your next show & watch the Panzerfuhrer's go nuts trying to figure out the whether markings & colour were real (especially if you can photoshop some images to back it up)! ;D ;D

I'd say that's the old Matchbox kit.  I have some fond memories of building that kit.

Itís 1:76. The markings are sort of based on photos.

Like it.  I remember building one of these way back when.  Looked nowhere near this good.
Do Revell give you the Dio base that came with the Matchbox kit?
