I just put together one of the PSC Marders, and was wondering what to do with the extra gun and Pz-38 turret.

I am just SO stealing this idea... :twisted:

Reverse also done.

Now all it needs is some paint and wash, and a few cubic meters of motherland.

And while that was drying, I started on the remaining two.

Dug in the bunker:

Had plenty of sand left over, so I also sanded a bunch of bases:

Since I like the way #1 bunker is coming along I put in some work on #2 and #3 guns.

Gungs is on a roll!

I've been sufficiently inspired by all this that I've started on a dug-in emplacement using parts from the same PSC kit. Except in my case I had decided to build the Marder 139, so I will be using the Pz-38 turret for the bunker.

It was close, but I managed to finish both before the glue ran out.

Dug in the remaining two bunkers:

Image

Made my first dug-in markers with the remaining sand.

Image

Gave the first bunker and a few bases their first brown wash - actually they came out darker than they look in the pics, but I'm waiting with the others till I know how they dry.

Taking the not quite dry dug-in markers for a test spin.

Don't pay any attention to the colours, this is a WIP after all.

Paint dry, pics taken with daylight to avoid the horrible flash discolorations.

Could have been worse, IMNSHO.

Added the last details to the first bunker: shading under the gun, the gun itself and for good measure a sprinkling of dandelions.

This paint will dry more matt over time, so not really necessary.

That's all rather beautiful. Great work G. As Stav said, will be stealing the idea when I crack my PSC mountain.

Too hot to do any serious stuff, but my hands couldn''t keep still and made this village well in an unguarded moment.

Still needs sand on the base and a proper paintjob.

I'm posting it with WWII, but naturally it will go with any period as well as Fantasy.
