Papermodels are models made of paper....I have been doing this papermodelling for a couple of years now.
So I will try to write about the buildprocess of my ongoing builds now and then.

A milestone was reached today! I finally finished the Sd.Kfz 250/3 Greif after over a year of work on it.Ok ok ok I will admit I have had some very long breaks!But now it’s done and only a few minor touchups left.Making the baseplate and some weathering to go.

Here are a few shots 🙂

Continuing the ChiHa

Sad day……first snow arrived in the mountains today….a bit early isn’t it??

A lot of traffic problems on the mountain crossing.

With a lot of quiet hours at work today I have done more work on the ChiHa.

I made the exhaust and the rear sidepanels.The exhaust was straight forward work.The parts had a 100% fit again.Most work is to paint all edges on the parts.I enhanced the covering net a bit by adding some gaz net that I stiffened with some white glue thinned in water.Cut out the top frame and glued it on the gaz.I’m not sure where to get metalnet so the gaz will have to do the job.

The sidepanels was also an easy task,just cut and do a bit of shaping and glue them in place.

Tomorrow I hope to get the last drivewheel done,and maybe do some more tracks…

Still on vacation

My second week of vacation is over…just one week left.
The work on the site continues with updating the construction reports and making gallery pics for the model I have made.
The site is slowly getting where I want!

Vacation… 3 kids are all at school,wife is working and weather is very nice.
I’m going to varnish my frontal door today.Testerday I used some sanding machines to get rid of old varnish.It’s perfect weather to do work like that with over 20deg C outside.
Not much papermodelling so far,but next week……I just have to finish the SDKfz 250 now!!

My last shift before my second vacation is almost over.I have not been able to work on the ChiHa this evening since it have been kind of busy at work.But I hope I will get some tracks done for the Greif during my 3 weeks vacation.

Wheels are done

Nightshift again….quiet,listening to the radio,drinking cofee and working on the model.
Finished the rest of the wheels tonight,and are now working on the suspension details.There are several parts to be connected to eachother,and I’m not sure about the way to do it.I have figured out that if I make all the parts and connect them to eachother,and glue it all in place when all springs and connectors are assembled might be the best soloution.
