Hi Folks!

Well, after realizing I hd missed my 5 year aniversery as a member of armorama, I also came across pictures of my old stuff and figured it would be nice to see how much everyone has evolved thanks to the help of contribution members on armorama and other modeling sites.

So go ahead and share the before and after pictures!

Here is my evolution-->
Churchill build in 2004:


Five years later, the same model stripped, repainted, and a few parts missing in the process:


Pershing 2005:

Now:

Jagdpanther built for the TD Campagin:

Repainted:


I look forward to seeing your work!

Now i will go study for the final stretch before the semester ends!

Well well well... are all your before pictures so bad you don't want to share?

James, thats a great improvement, especially on the figures. Have you switched to Valejo?

Wow, thats a major improvement. really clean build, perfectly weathered.

I think its amazing the learning curve that can be achieved from modeling. In my opnion, a large part of improvements for me wasn't just trial and error and taking more time. I find that using proper materials and cleaning my airbrush contributes to succesful modeling.

With every build we learn something new. We make mistakes. We try not to repeat them.


Keep the post Alive Folks!
