Looking good Micky :)

You need a load of Nebelwerfer rounds to go in the back of the Krupp B)

That doesn't surprise me with Italeri!

I think LionRoar make a nice set of turned aluminium Nebelwerfer rounds

I like the R12, the weathering and rust on the exhaust suggest lots of hard riding in the dust and mud. What sort of case did the rounds come in. You could have some cases perhaps. Did they come in cases??? :dunno:

Verlinden make a set of 15cm Neberlwerfer ammo and containers. No. 1068



Very pricey though, ebay might be the cheapest option

I've got the Verlinden set for mine and to be honest didn't really think they were worth the price. They're nice but as Andrew said, kinda pricey for what they are.

My wife calls me a curmudgeon. I haven't looked it up but I assume it means "fun loving and free spirited" or some such twaddle. I inform and perform over at www.militarymodels.co.nz and stick my oar in here as well. My passion is WWII 1/35 armour but I'm coming around to liking the odd 1/32 thing...

thanks mate, i used a styrene 15mll sheet cut it to shape with my new weller hot knife, then i built up the mud using tile adehisive in layers giving it time to dry between coats then put the model on to get the wheel ruts, then i took the model of carefully when it had dried, then sprayed it using a mix of tamiya XF-60 and XF-52 had to give it a couple of coats to get the depth of colour right, i then sprayed it with 6 coats of klear to get the sheen.

Good looking base you have there Micky :cheer: Great looking mud ;)

My only suggestion would be maybe add a few puddles in the deeper divits using resin or some sort of water effect product? B)

I love the mud. The resin pools with dirty water is a great idea. I feel the same about casting as you do Micky.. too hard for me.... though I can certainly make the lego mold holders.
