Here is a Hetzer I painted for a friend a few weeks ago. The model is the Battlefront Flames of War German Hetzer model (15mm). The friend I painted it for wanted me to try to replicate a colour scheme from Blood, Guts and Glory where there is a bit of green around the dark brown spots. This model was lots of fun to paint. The Hetzer is pretty interesting looking. The decals are from Dom's Decals and are based off of a picture I found of a Hetzer with this number and cross location.

Here are some pictures of some blast markers I made for destroyed vehicles. The blast markers are built from small pieces of metal, paper clips, clump foliage and lots of PVA glue. They were pretty quick to make and work well for destroyed vehicles in Flames of War or vehicle damage markers for Warhammer 40k or any other building that uses vehicles.

At long last I have painted my first team of infantry for Flames of War! I have completely finished painting and basing a single team of American paratroopers from the 101st Airborne Division. The team has been painted with the uniform used during Operation Market Garden and been based to roughly fit that location and time. The models are the plastic infantry from the Open Fire box set.

In this tutorial I will show you how I painted the camouflage on this WWII German Me262 airplane for Flames of War. The model is a bit smaller than 15mm I believe. I painted the model using an airbrush and used tape for the masking. The Me262 was the world's first operational fighter jet.
