Cheyenne and JG-Thanks Gents for the very generous comments.

I popped the driver in for a test drive. He will get snuggled down more when finished but you get the idea. Not my best Erbsenmuster. I may re-paint.

And just like that. What a great pose caught in motion - repaint the camo if you must but don’t touch the dirty fingernails!

Thanks Tim,
Wonderful comment ! Those nails are easier than you think,but I suppose the usual modelers' point of view is that I should make it sound difficult ! Hahahahahah

Hi Jerry,

The levels of your meticulous painting skills never fail to impress. The various color tones just to the facial skin areas are amazing and very realistic. Excellent job there my friend!

I have zero knowledge and experience in painting realistic skin tones and shadows. I will research your work extensively in attempts to learn your wonderful painting techniques but mastering them at this level can only come with repetition.

Thank you for sharing.

Nick and JG you guys rock ! Thanks for the much needed words of encouragement.
here is another part of the cargo finished. Not much but it took a while to fix the incorrect gear teeth on that thing. The radio is a nice little PE sample from Lionsroar.

It is coming along nicely Jerry, I like the uniform the way it is. It has a naturally faded look to it. Cant wait to see the rest of the crew.

Every post from you is more impressive than the previous. You've no limit! It's a pleasure to watch works like yours.

I agree with Tim, if you want to repaint the camo, go ahead, but don't touch the hands!!

Keep on buddy!

I agree with what’s been said. I think if you fix those two nose hairs on the guy, he’s gut.

Jerry,
That really looks like a hefty chunk of steel in the back — and some nice dings in the compartment from loading it! The radio with its protective padding is a nice touch as well. ... Sweet little Prime Mover!

Cheers!🍺

Thanks Mike,I appreciate the great comments. I finally got the correct gears on that final drive. That was embarrassing to make that mistake ! It would have been much easier for me to build it correctly in the first place,as these straight gears were way simpler to make !

Thanks for the enormous thumbs up buddy !

Got the next guy finished and installed.

A WIP look at his face and hair. Hornet head and hands,modified body and putty hair.



And installed. The blanket and soft cap are putty with PE cap badges.





Oak leaf pattern coveralls. This is a guy transferred from LAH as a radio specialist to help form the new HJ Division and so he retained his 1943 style overalls. Plenty of pics support these being worn in Western Europe.

Following an exhaustive analysis of those prints….there must be another suspect with dirtier fingers still on the run. Plot’s thickening, ultra-cool
