15mm Heer46/Luftwaffe46 - Grav Tanks (Ravenstar Studios)


Interesting use of sc-fi genre here, all down to the customer, inspired!  Here we have three Ravenstar Studio Mercury class fast grav tanks, repurposed in a Heer46 or is it Luftwaffe46? "What-if" role.

I've tried to emulate a combination of the Luftwaffe splinter and mottle edged camouflage style with some light chipping through to aluminium.

All three are on detachable home made bases, 5mm clear acrylic rod on pre-cut MDF bases, so they raise the sculpts about 11/2 inches off the ground.

Lovely paint job that imaginatively ties in Sci-fi to weird World War II. Lovely work

Thanks guys, I'm very tempted by the "flyer" ravenstar do as I think this would be perfect in a similar scheme, nice alternatives for me
