Imagine a world where the Allies didn't win the war, nor did the Axis. Instead, the war just continued on and on in an unsteady stalemate. Welcome, to the world of 1949. In this world Germany decided not to bomb London, but instead continued its attacks on Britain's airfields. Then, the Russians lost at Kursk. Finally, D-Day fails. With these victories, Germany has managed to halt the Allie's progress. In the Western Theatre, the Allies and the Axis each plan the invasion of the other's vital territories. In the Pacific, Japan and the United States are dueling over tiny islands with giant fleets and atomic weapons. Now, the stalemate is about to be broken. Germany is preparing an all out invasion of Britain. As tough and valiant as the Allied troops defending the Sceptered Isle are, some of their leaders are beginning to that they will be unable to hold against the Wehrmacht.
To prove that I'm still alive, and am currently working on new models, here is the Wehrmacht's Panther. While these are no longer being manufactured in bulk thanks to the advent of the E-series, these are the interim models that were built/retrofitted until the E-50 was made ready for production in 1948. As such, this model of tank is what most average Wehrmacht armored units possess.
This is hardly the most advanced vehicle currently in the works. I also have several small arms that I'm working on right now. Since I'm working full time to pay for college, it should come as no surprise that I am still hard pressed for time, though I can manage to get work done on the mod. Most importantly, I'm still learning how to use all the mod/modeling tools, and once I've become acquainted with them, work should progress much more quickly. Remember, I am basically learning every skill I'll need right now, so the going may be a bit slow at first, as it has been recently.
Anyway, I made this by combining Relic's Panther and Panzer IV models, with a little bit of my own elbow grease included. this is not the final product, which will probably look at least a little different. Now then, it is 4am on Christmas Eve/morning, I think I will take a short break from working now. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night's sleep.
