About Vinnie Branigan (Teacher)


Dagnammit that's one sweet build! I love the camo scheme. I've got the same kit sitting on the top of my shelf - next one to build after I finish my Chally 2. Trouble is, I can't for the life of me choose between the three different build choices. I tend to prefer non-exotic units which saw extensive front line service - but damn does your build tempt me to do the nacht falke. What did you use for the cables and wiring, by the way? Also, how did you achieve the IR-lens effect? As usual, very impressive stuff!

Wow, Vinnie, great work on this Sd Kfz 251 Ausf D Falke. You can get much better then this That hard-edge camo scheme is awesome ! It reminds me of the late-war Czech scheme seen on Hetzers. You did a fine job on the IR equipment as well ! Cheers !! Alpen

Outstanding display of modelling skills..... This goes for everything you have done ,so far. Replicates the atmosphere of the battleground..... Love the camouflage & dusty weathering. Could you elaborate on how it was applied ?.

Awesome build Vinnie, really like the camo scheme and the weathering. The overall build is very clean, hope mine (when I build it) can be 1/10th as good. Masterful work!

As usual, fantastic job!

Vinnie, While I really love the hard edge camo, my question is how you got it done? Frisket paper, LOTS of tape. What color tape. Also what kind of paint? Again, Outstanding job!! Tracy

That is a nice piece Teacher. It'd look good on my shelf.

Thanks for the comments guys! I basecoated the model in Tamiya Nato black as a pre-shade, then XF-60 Dark yellow, and the camo scheme was brush painted on using Vallejo acrylics.....no masking or frisket! Vinnie
