Tiger I is the common name of a German heavy tank used in World War II, developed in 1942. The final official German designation was Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf. E, often shortened to Tiger. It was an answer to the unexpectedly formidable Soviet armour encountered in the initial months of Operation Barbarossa, particularly the T-34 and the KV-1. The Tiger I design gave the Wehrmacht its first tank mounting the 88 mm gun, which had previously demonstrated its effectiveness against both air and ground targets. During the course of the war, the Tiger I saw combat on all German battlefronts. It was usually deployed in independent tank battalions, which proved to be quite formidable..
The Bedford OY is an army lorry built by Bedford for the British Armed Forces and introduced in 1939. It was based on Bedford’s O-series commercial vehicles with a modified front end and single rear tyres. The OXD was a general service vehicle, a short-wheelbase version of the OY, designed for a 30 cwt (1.5 ton) payload.
This is a photograph of a Bedford OXD in German army service in Hungary. So I was thinking I could paint it in this style.
This is an SDD model I bought in the 1990s.
It comprises three parts in white metal.
After cleaning the castings the model will be stuck together and undercoated.
This is a laser-cut mdf building from 4Ground for Great Escape Games’ Dead Man’s Hand set of rules.
When a camp town started becoming more prosperous the residents would start producing town buildings, these were often frame buildings in which the timber frame was built as a shell and then the rest of the building was built in and around it.
This was easiest to do in areas with large amounts of lumber (or easy access to it by railroad). Many towns would have this kind of building almost under constant construction at one location or another as the towns grew.
These buildings make great terrain pieces as they can provide cover without blocking line of sight.
This is just the skeleton of a house.
You do need to take care pressing this out, as it is a little more delicate than those models with complete walls.
I would say the roof is very challenging, so take your time and it can’t be rushed.
