Kröte Panzer Aufkalärungs TW-47

I am not a prolific modeller by anyone’s standards. While I may start quite a few models I only manage to get three or four finished each year. The last model completed was an old Nitto 1/20 scale “Kröte Panzer Aufkalärungs TW-47”, one of the models from the Maschinen Krieger universe.

The base kit was updated with quite a few bits from the spares box, along with scratch built smoke dispensers and a bucket load of bolt, plate and pipe work.  It was finished primarily in LifeColor acrylics, with a good selection of various pigments and washes. The fuel barrel is a home-made resin cast of a 3D printed custom-designed barrel.

The original build log for this can be found here over on the Model Armour forums, and photos of the finished model are below.

This model recently won a gold medal at the Poole Vikings 2013 Model Show where it was also awarded the trophy for ‘best Sci-Fi model on display’. It has also won a gold medal at Bugle Call 2012 and took second place in Model Armour’s November 2012 feature competition.
