Very nice specimens. As a young kid I used to build the Tamiya brand models (like you, WWI amour). These were motorized with wired controllers. I did not spend the time painting afterwards - just wanted to get it up and running.

The coolest thing I’ve seen lately. Great detail, especially for a self confessed beginner. I think they are awesome.

WWII 1.5T Soviet ZIS truck. Produced in large numbers from 1932 to 1948. They were the workhorses of the war for the Soviets. Smaller 1/48 scale.

I thought the mud on the soldiers boots would add even more realism.

Panzer Kampfwagen II Ausf F tank. As it was at the end of the French campaign.

German forces began Fall Rot (Case Red) on 5 June. The sixty remaining French divisions and the two British divisions in France made a determined stand on the Somme and Aisne but were defeated by the German combination of air superiority and armoured mobility.

German tanks outflanked the Maginot Line and pushed deep into France, occupying Paris unopposed on 14 June. After the flight of the French government and the collapse of the French Army, German commanders met with French officials on 18 June to negotiate an end to hostilities.

Wow Serge!
Great work.

I did this in my early teens.
By the age of 15, I had a whole scenery of WWII in my room. It was filled with the North African war, with sand, soldiers, tanks, trucks, Kübelwagen, buildings, airplanes in the air and all that stuff.
My mother went crazy after a while and I couldn't keep it for long.

I must still have some paints, brushes and boxes lying somewhere in the house.

Thanks Bart. I have a dedicated room for the modeling and my mom lives in a different state. Safe to say she will not be invading my hobby space. My wife supports it and always compliments the work... Whatever keeps me occupied I think....

Man, I can't believe your attention to detail -- right down to the gauges in the Jeep and the dirt on the tread!

Simply amazing.

Thanks, attention to detail and figuring out how to paint and add effects that enhance the realism is where the fun is for me.
