6MMRPC Week Six: Building Some Bunkers

While continuing the packing process in preparation for moving, I kept my eye out for projects that I could work on simply, since most of my collection and my airbrush have been boxed up.  I stumbled upon several old bunkers and gun nests that have languished in a forgotten box for several years and I think these should prove to be simple enough to work on without most of my tools.  Hopefully I can get some of these completed by next week.

Two Pantherturms, two gun nests, a 5cm KwK bunker, and a HMG bunker.

6MMRPC Week Five: Passing Along the Hobby

This was supposed to be the week that I packed up all of my hobby stuff and moved back to California, but we're still waiting on some things for the new house.  That said, my packing was basically done and I didn't really have anything to work on!  I did manage to get a few partially assembled projects primed and put a little bit of paint on a few stands of infantry for a Late War Führer Begleit Brigade list, and helped my seven-year old build his first model, a Zvezda snap-together King from the Pixar Cars movie.  He really loved putting it together and applying the stickers, while I trimmed all of the parts off of the sprue for him.  I remember building my first model when I was about his age and he can't wait for another go at modeling.

Otto-Ernst Remer is an option for the Führer Begleit lists, I updated the Mid War figure by swapping the head and replacing the PPsH with a panzerfaust.  I also started on a command team and an observer.  The figures are a mix of Volksgrenadiers and Begleit.
So far, I've got primer on some Panzer IV/70As, Panzer IV Js, SdKfz 231s, a platoon of armored infantry, some Nebelwerfer crew, and Remer.
Always read the instructions before starting!
The King, all finished and stickered!
