Achtung Panzer!

 A recent addition to my 28mm World War Two collection is this Rubicon Models Panzer IV Ausf J.

As with all Rubicon kits a joy to assemble, the schurzen even has a jig supplied to enable trouble free assembly.

Airbrushed with AK and Mig Ammo paints and weathered with Abteilung oils and AK pencils.




All being I will be off to sunny Al Andalus courtesy of Matt on the Sunday, looking at the forecast virtual sunshine is all that can be hoped for.

Until next time have a care and KBO.

  1. A splendid addition, despite the lack of beards! I see you are committing gaming adultery again this weekend. Have you no shame?😷

    1. None at all, will do anything for a couple of hours in the sun. It has some spare track at the front which looks like a kind of beard.

  2. A very professional finish there Phil, oils and pencils, cutting edge. I would like to try that kit with the wire shurzen but with seven kits on the way I cannot afford a divorce lawyer.

    1. Thank you Aly, nicked the scheme from a book, the chocolate brown and dunkelgelb fitted in with my autumn/winter theme.

  7. Very well done Phil! Really like the two colour camo scheme. Something I had planned for a 15mm Late War force that never got off ground

  8. Never tried using an airbrush but the effects always look superb. Great job Phil, not just on the tank but the tank commander also.
