Okay, I'll jump into the ring as well. Following up on my German PZ IVs, I'm going to do this;

This is 4 M10 Tank Destroyers, and a Tank Destroyer Security Section consisting of 2 M-20 Utility cars and 1 jeep.

And...no street judge was included in the picture for scale purposes only and is not part of this entry either. ;)

Holy smokes Batman! Talus, did you deliberately decide on a huge figure to paint just to put everyone else off??

Going to have to dig out my Judges this weekend!

Size isn't everything! Apparently.

I'd have said that bigger models are a disadvantage (not that this is super-serious) because 28mm and similar have much more detail provided by the sculptor and at a basic level are easier to make look good. Personally I find large plain areas a nightmare.

Wow! Thanks KMB! I can't tell you how many useful tips I picked up in that video, and it showed me where I've been going wrong all this time!

Nice find!

Wouldn't it be better to have 3 weeks to submit with 1 week voting? Rather than 2:2. Regardless, it's cool to have a painting comp on here.

So I'm going enter a single SM bike w/ Plasma Gun from the DV box set.

I'm going to be working on an entire RW 'style' squad for my BA, including revamping some of my 10< year old BA force. But I'll only be entering the Plasma Gunner.

Just a quick one. When you say unpainted can you have them undercoated? The reason I'm asking is that when I go back to work I have to pre undercoat any models I take back to me due to not being able to take spray paints on a plane ( I've been collared at Dubai airport before for this!).
