Well, this is my first sci-project so please be gentle!
This is Palo Parente's Dust Models "Gunther". I was drawn in because of the borrowed design aspects of Panzers & 222. That and the thing is just mean looking!
The rivet details is all added with evergreen, grab handles in floral wire, head lights have been "borrowed" from a Panther G.
It will need to be re-primed, other than that, I believe it is ready for the FUN part!






 Any feedback before the paint starts flying would be great!

Looks great!  Could you tell me how the rivets were accomplished with Evergreen plastic?

 The rivets were made by using 3 different size punches with rounded heads. A suitable thickness of evergreen is place over a rubber matt and then the punching begins.
 Also, I primed the bottome sode of the evergreen, this will help you to distinguish what side of each rivet you are looking at when you end up with a large pile of them to work with.
 So, for Camo I was thinking of "borrowing" the late war luftwaffe colors and patterns from FW-190-D9 & TA-152 aircraft. I will use rottbraun, brown violet, & green.
 I like this idea but I am not 100% sold.......any other ideeas?

Can you post a pic of the punches, I'm always looking for better ways to make rivets, especially in styrene?
