PSC Panzers

Finally managed to make a start on the box of PSC Panzer IVs.  I'm going to make the 'H' version, as it was common during the Normandy campaign and after.  So far they've had a spray of German Armour whilst on the sprue and I've assembled the turrets and main hull.  They'll get a second spray coat (when the weather outside clears up a bit!) then I'll make a start on camo before assembling the tracks and schurtzen.

I'm not planning on doing a detailed review, others have already done far too good a job of that for me to try and follow.  I will just say however, that they are a delight to assemble.  Apart from one turret side hatch (where the recess is too small and needs a little trimming), everything fits together beautifully, some parts not even really needing gluing.

One question though, do I hand-paint the camo?  Or do I try breaking out the airbrush (which I've never been that confident using)?


  1. Looking good so far.
    I'd go for hand painted camo, but then I've never owned or used an airbrush :)

  2. Be a devil and try the airbrush, you can always repaint. Keep us informed!

  3. Nice to see them all toghether like that, I wish I was as good at building them a year ago as you are right now.

    Very nice kit, have a blast!

  4. Looking good. I see you solved the riddle of the filzbalgfilter...

    Cheers, Dave

    1. I'm guessing that's the exhaust/filter thingy on the right hand side of the hull! Instructions might have been useful, in the end I copied other, more informed bloggers' work!

  5. Those are nice kits :)
    I second Paul. Try the airbrush. Layers are so thin that a repaint shouldn't be a problem!
    Go for it!

  6. Looks like the consensus us to try the airbrush, better try and find it in the loft then!
