Although many modelers can master the basic techniques of construction, it is with the painting and finishing of their kits that many begin to struggle. It is this skill that gives the model its distinctive look and feel and separates the good model form the truly great one. This title will present a detailed, step-by-step approach to addressing the difficulties involved in creating realistic, colorful finishes to armor and aviation models using a variety of different media and techniques. The book swill be aimed at both the beginner and the intermediate modeler looking to improve their skills and, through clear text and photography will give a chapter-by chapter guide to the subject. Each stage will deal with a particular element of the painting and finishing process, whether it be creating camouflage schemes or dealing with markings and decals, to build into a comprehensive study of the subject. Relevant tools and materials will be included in sidebars, whilst a Gallery feature will highlight the range of color schemes and finishes available throughout the world of military and aviation modeling.
The Rheinmetall heavy Infanteriegeschutz 33 was the most powerful German support weapon at the beginning of World War II, and in January 1940, the first attempts were made to transform it to a tracked vehicle. An improved version, based on the Panzer II chassis, served in Rommel's Afrika Korps, and further alterations were made during the battle for Stalingrad in 1942. The Grille Ausf. H, the adaptation of the sIG 33 on the Czech Panzer 38(t) chassis, served from 1943 onwards with the schwere Infanteriegeschutz companies of Panzergrenadier regiments. This book covers a wide range of modelling projects based around this ubiquitous vehicle type.
The Tiger has proved to be one of the most popular modelling
subjects of all time, with a vast and ever-increasing range of
kits, aftermarket products and references available. Probably the
most famous tank of World War II, the Tiger was designed in
response to the German Army's fighting experience in Western
Europe, North Africa and Russia. Armed with the most powerful
German gun, the famous 88mm, the Panzer VI Tiger was intended to
dominate the battlefield from the East to the West.
In the second half of World War II, the German Army were facing numerically superior armoured forces on both Eastern and Western Fronts. Their solution was to increase their tank destroyer production to cope with this threat. One of their principal tank destroyers from 1944 onwards was the Jagdpanzer 38t, or 'Hetzer,' of which 2,627 were built in the last 14 months of the war. This title covers all the information that the AFV modeller will need to build any of the variants of the Jagdpanzer 38t 'Hetzer,' including the Bergepanzer recovery vehicle. It also covers all the camouflage, paint schemes and markings that were used on this vehicle.
The concept of the Sturmgeschutz III started well before the war
when the German army announced the need for a self-propelled 75mm
gun to be used for infantry support. By 1938, several '0-Serie'
prototype vehicles were produced on earlier style Panzer IIIB
chassis by Daimler-Benz. The manufacture of the first 30 production
vehicles (StuG III Ausf. A) that went into combat in the invasion
of France were made at the Alkett factory in Berlin. As the war
progressed, the StuG III was continuously improved with variants A
through E, and then given a longer, more powerful gun starting with
the Ausf. F. The role of the AFV became more diverse, and duties as
a tank hunter increased. Some StuG III were allotted to Panzer
companies to supplement their losses. Significant changes to the
hull were made with the introduction of the Ausf. G, with the later
variant of the G being produced right up until April of 1945. The
StuG III chassis was also used to house the 10.5 cm Sturmhaubitze
42 L/28 howitzer, of which over 1,200 were produced by Alkett. With
the low silhouette and strongly armoured hull, the StuG III proved
to be one of the more significant weapons of the German forces of
World War II.
