Zvezda hanomag 251/B. Nice model but I don't care for this version really so when I will get more of them I will have to convert them to later C version (and get some PSC ones because this is a little annoying, IMHO Zvezda missed some opportunities with those artificially old versions of everything for their 1941 WW Game. Some models are usable and grea but T34 mod 1940 is hardlyy seen anymore after first few months of war and Hanomag A nad B were the first 500 from around 15000 built, and obsolete in 1941 for almost a year already..). Its somewhat masked by few extras Ive added though. Mg34 shield needs replacement unfortunately as I don't like her.
Overall beautiful model that could be better painted in this example.

First WIP of Zvezda t34-76/1940 being converted to T34-76/1941. Ive aded machinegun, lamp, driver visors, hooks and hand railings. Ive removed few details, exchanged gun and now gun mantle is being remade.
Then comes second squad for my Strelkovy platoon (PSC)
And then some new toys lurking in the background ! (Zvezda)

Few months ago Ive started to work on PSC Tiger Tanks. I did wanted to try my luck with Zimmerit. First round tank was made with Zimmerit from Liquid green stuff. Well Lest say its bad approach. I do not recommend it. I started to work on second one so I will post soon. But no Its first one painted. Zimmerite is note very visible and it melted somehow so its not very prominent either. You know its here but its hardly visible as intended.
Due to chosen camo color (502 SpA from late 1944) chipped off zimmerit in base color (red brown for German tank - applied in production) was not visible, so after Fromhold advice its in raw paste color for contrast, lets assume they are fresh chippings.
Here is unpainted shot
