    Hi all
    After attending the Welling show last month and buying a Latorre Models Panzer Officer with cut away turret , what should have been a straight forward build n paint turned into a mini project.
    The figures are both Alpine brought from Steve at Sk Mimiatires and the extra armour for the Turret was donated from Jason at LSA Models in Hove .
    Everything is painted in Vallejo acrylics with airbrushing for the Panzer Turret and oil paint for the splinter camo of the crewman standing.
    The foliage around the Turret is sea foam with leafs made from rubber.
    Iam not sure about the black cut away section , your thoughts on it would be appreciated.
    Thanks for looking

    Nice work(y). I wouldn't worry about the cutaway section. IMO almost everyone is being used to visually accept this kind of aesthetic solution

    Looks pretty darn good to me.(y) I think painting the cutaway black is the right way to go. Its what I would have done anyway.

    Just to echo the others, I use black for all cutaways and I don't recall seeing anything else used for it. Fantastic results(y)(y)
