Lockdown Workshop – Steve Reay

Steve Reay sent in not one, but several examples of what he’s been working on recently and, it has to be said, some of the models are quite small, so congratulations on some excellent photography as well as modelmaking.
Steve tells us: “The Airfix1/72nd Scammell and Grant was built straight out the box; it was more of a painting exercise after a visit to Bovington! Their Grant is just amazing!!!!!
All painted with Vallejo paints. 
The Revell 1/72nd Panzer IV, 
I changed the turret shurzen for plastic card as the kit was way to thick!! 
The lower shurzen supports were removed and holes filled, the barrel is a metal RP barrel. 
The turret hatches were opened to accommodate the figures, which are the brilliant Dan Taylor models. 
All painted with Mission Model paints. 
Tamiya 1/48th scale Kubelwagen, 
Drivers door opened, and windscreen, spare wheel covered with tissue and PVA. The stowage is Black Dog.
The figure is the brilliant Eisernes Kreuz metal fallschirmager.
The base is basically sandpiper painted black, then rubble added and painted again, all painted with vallejo paints. 
Bandai 1/48th scale 8 rad, converted to the SdKfz. 233 Stummel, using Gasoline resin kit. Took a bit of straightening as the main top hull was a tad (to put it politely) warped, kettle on, hot water and swearing… Then all was OK. 
The figure is from Dartmoor, 
The base is again, sandpaper, with grass, and some fuel drums from Tamiya. 
The sign was scratch built. 
All painted with Mission Model paints,and Vallejo for the figure”.
