In this blog post I will show some pictures of a platoon of Sd.Kfz 234/1 and 234/2 Pumas I recently painted. I painted this platoon as the first platoon in a large Kampfgruppe Peiper commission I am working on. The client requested all of the models in the commission to be painted in the vertical striped, hard-edged camouflage pattern. So expect to see more Germans in this pattern soon!

As part of the Kampfgruppe Peiper commission I am working on I painted a Me262. The Me262 was the world’s first jet fighter. More importantly, it has lots of really interesting camouflage patterns to paint. For this model I followed the tutorial on Me262 camouflage I posted last year. I’m glad I wrote the tutorial or I would have forgotten which colours to use to recreate the pattern!

Before the holidays I very quickly painted up most of this Tiger platoon. Then the holidays came and lots of things got in the way. I have finally completed this Tiger platoon. Now I just need to find a way to include three Tigers into a somewhat viable list…

2013 was a year of personal change for me. I started the year living in Vancouver, spent a few months working in another town, and then moved to Penticton, BC (in the Okanagan region of British Columbia, Canada about 400km away) in the fall. Throughout the year I have worked at six different jobs as things have been in flux and have settled into some new positions in my new town. On the hobby side of things, 2013 was a relatively focused year for me. I made lots of progress on Flames of War models and I feel like I really improved as a 15mm painter. In this post I will review last years goals and set some goals for the coming year.
