Workbench GZG

Originally uploaded by inrepose

Lots of 15mm GZG tanks and vehicles on the workbench. This is most of the collection picked up at Colours Wargames show.

Every model here is metal and most are two part hull with a separate turret. The wheeled vehicles are many more parts with each wheel being a hub and wheel section that needs cleaning up and glueing. Some of the latest 15mm SCI-FI Miniatures are stunning and a pleasure to paint.

All model components were sanded, filed and cleaned up before being washed in hot soapy water. I then got high on super glue from a lot of careful connecting of parts. Always score large flat areas with a knife before gluing, they really won't come apart again if you have scored the metal on both parts due to be glued.

Tamiya model primer was then used to spray all the models grey and ready to be airbrushed.
