So, as I promised, here we go. Show me your gun, babe!
Speaking of weapons ...
There has been a lot of progress on the Hetzer – I mean … the Jagdpanzer 38 – and though I dropped it on the ground a few times, it still is alive. A very well constructed vehicle. German – I mean - Gallian Engineering rules!
But ... I have been informed by someone about the vehicle being a not all too perfect match to the original and that I could have done a lot of things in a different way and I have to state: Yes – yeah! You’re right! It isn’t a perfect match of the original and I guess a professional sculptor would have made a wonderfully perfect Gallian Tank Destroyer 38 out of it – but guess what? I am not a perfect sculptor and I don’t care if it totally hits the spot. For me it needs to catch the Gallian feeling, and I think it does very well … plus: it is a miniature for gaming made by me. That is what matters for me. I am not creating a diorama. For me it already is just epic that I was able to achieve a goal that big just by deciding to do it and I love the outcome.
So, if there is anyone who can do better, please feel free to do so. Use whatever material you might want to use to make a perfect match of the original pre-VC vehicle. I am happy with the tank I constructed.
Still there is some work that has to be done. I have to sand some parts and adjust the armor brackets. Then there is this construction plate every Gallian Tank has on it and after that is finished the vehicle will (finally) be finished and ready to be painted. Yes!
|Ever seen such a beautiful design?!|
|Its lovely ‘skirt’ is just hiding the weakest spots.|

I also have been able to go on with the Gallian Truck, though it seems that the bench seat disappeared which leaves me stunned. Where did it go? Maybe it was taken by some Borrowers … anyway:
And last but not least: the infantry
That concludes this update – sadly I won’t be able to go on with this for a while 'cause I have been challenged by the Imperial Japanese Navy to finish my US Navy – That will take at least on month, I suppose.
So that will be my next project – and after that, we will go on with the Gallian army! I promise.
See you on the next update!
